Provider of semiconductor solutions in the consumer electronics and telecommunications markets, TranSwitch (News - Alert) Corporation, recently had its HDplay TXC-44146 transceiver designed into Playvision's next generation high definition video switch, which will be put into production in December 2012. Playvision is a designer and manufacturer of high performance video equipment sold under leading brand names in Asia, Europe and the Americas.
With the integration of HDplay, Playvision will now support DisplayPort in its multimedia switching products, supporting high-end monitors, which most often sport the technology. While HDMI has largely obtained the standard for high definition displays, DisplayPort is beginning to turn up in many new multimedia devices. In fact, a recent report from In-Stat (News - Alert) expects annual shipments of DisplayPort devices to hit one billion units by 2015.
“Playvision’s new video switch offers our customers a high performance solution for connecting multiple video devices with different input standards, including HDMI and DisplayPort,” said Zhou Qingquan, president and GM at Playvision. “Through collaboration with TranSwitch, we are bringing to market a robust and more competitive product that features sharp video, ultra-fast input switching, and gives our customers the ability to select inexpensive cables while preserving a high quality user experience. We look forward to continued collaboration with TranSwitch as we continue to expand our high definition video product offering.”
HDplay transceivers are able to combine both HDMI and DisplayPort functionality on a single integrated circuit. These transceivers also feature TranSwitch's patented AnyCable technology, which allows for the use of long and inexpensive cables while maintaining HDMI 1.4 performance.
“Playvision has a broad and expanding portfolio of high definition video products and we are proud to add them to our growing HDplay customer base,” said Tim Blanke, vice president of worldwide sales at TranSwitch.
TranSwitch recently filed a universal shelf registration statement with the SEC (News - Alert) which, if declared effective, would enable the company to raise funds through one or more of the issuances of the securities covered in the statement. The company is expected to release its third quarter financial results on November 8, 2012, at about 4:15 Eastern Time.
