Philips Shows Nexperia Media Player Design

Based on Philips’ Nexperia PNX1500 connected media processor and Mediabolic’s middleware, the solution allows users to access music, photos and videos, and enhances their experience by bringing networked applications to their television. The Philips reference design can be used either as a standalone next-generation digital media adapter (DMA) or as an integrated TV module.

Philips’ Nexperia PNX1500 supports decoding of all leading audio, image and video formats, including MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, H.264 and Windows Media Video. It supports standard definition (SD) to HD up-conversion with advanced de-interlacing, and integrates an LCD controller and advanced graphics engine. Its full-resolution MPEG encoding and integrated IDE and PCI controllers allow the reference design to be easily extended for both digital video recorder (DVR) capability and wireless connectivity.

The new reference design from Philips will be available in July 2005 for USD $5,000.
