TranSwitch Corporation recently announced the release of two new products, the TXC-44152 and the TXC-44154, effectively expanding its HDplay portfolio. The company is a premier provider of semiconductor solutions for the consumer video and telecommunications markets.
“The TXC-44154 features four inputs with each capable of supporting HDMI, DisplayPort and mini-DisplayPort, and is ideal for use in mid-range TVs and monitors,” said Amir Bar-Niv, Senior Vice President of the High Speed Interconnect business unit. “By optimizing the feature set for this market, we are able to lower the cost we can offer the industry. As we engage with customers, it is clear that there is a market for this combination of features, functionality, and price."
The TXC-44152 and the TXC-44154 will extend the company’s HDplay family to reach high volume projector and TV market segments, giving importance to small form factor and cost-effectiveness.
The two new products are compatible with existing devices and make it easy for manufacturers to include HDplay products within their product portfolios featuring optimized capabilities and pricing.
"I am particularly excited about our prospects in the projector market where the need for combined HDMI and DisplayPort capability is clearly recognized,” added Bar-Niv. “According to Pacific Media Associates, worldwide projector sales are expected to grow from 15 million in 2011 to 35 million in 2013 with continued strong growth thereafter. One of the key drivers of this growth will be a new class of projectors with an ultra small form factor, called a pico projector, which will give consumers an unprecedented level of portability.”
The TXC-44152 has been designed with two inputs supportting HDMI, DisplayPort or mini-DisplayPort, ideal for the pico projector market segment. The product has also been designed to support single connector projectors which support HDMI and DisplayPorts.
“Our products are receiving a favorable response from customers,” the VP said. “Our feature set is clearly resonating with the industry. Currently, we are actively engaged with over thirty OEMs representing a broad cross-section of the industry in terms of size, geography, and end-user application. We believe these new products will expand the list of opportunities for HDplay and position us well to increase our market share."
