NXP Semiconductors announced the launch of the NXP SAA8510, a mobile multimedia TV-out processor that will enable TV-output on any mobile device having a standard LCD interface. The NXP SAA8510 converts mobile digital video signals into high-quality analog TV signals, which can then be displayed on any NTSC and PAL TV set.
Advanced scale and filter technology promises excellent output quality and an improved display of low-resolution mobile content on larger TV screens. Easily integrated in mobile devices, such as handsets and portable media players, the NXP SAA8510 allows consumers to share mobile videos, still images and even music using a home TV screen.
“As the cell phone continues to become known as the world’s ‘third screen’ behind the TV and PC, consumers will need the added flexibility to access their mobile content beyond the 2-inch screens of most mobile devices,” said Vincent Pronk, multimedia marketing manager of NXP’s Business Unit Mobile & Personal, in a statement. “We developed the SAA8510 TV-out processor in close collaboration with our key customers to help fuel the convergence of mobile and home multimedia, and to give end-users the freedom to take their mobile content from the small screen to the big screen whenever they want.”
NXP says that its TV-out processor’s quality output is enabled by a polyphase up/down scaler that allows different scale factors horizontally and vertically.
NXP says that the SAA8510 TV-out processor is available now.
