ViXS Showcases Broad Range of Ultra HD 4K 10-Bit HEVC Silicon Innovations at CES 2014

ViXS Systems Inc. (TSX: VXS), the pioneer and leader in media processing silicon solutions, today announces it will be showcasing the latest in Ultra HD 4K and 10-bit HEVC solutions based on its unrivaled XCode 6400 System-on-Chip (SoC) at CES 2014 in Las Vegas. The XCode 6400 is the first SoC to successfully support High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) Main 10 Profile helping drive the transition to Ultra HD 4K across the entire content distribution value chain – from cloud infrastructure to media gateways and video devices.

By utilizing the power of the XCode 6400’s unique processing architecture, equipment manufacturers can now accelerate the design of new, first to market products that push the boundaries of performance and low power consumption. With the processing power to handle today’s multi-tasking, software-intensive networking, display and streaming services, the XCode 6400 empowers manufacturers to meet the immediate surging demand for 4K products and take advantage of the incredible color depth and picture clarity offered by HEVC 10-bit media processing.

“Ultra HD 4K is clearly the star of CES 2014, and ViXS is the first silicon company to ship an SoC that supports it - the XCode 6400,” said Sally Daub, President and CEO, ViXS Systems Inc. “We are thrilled to once again lead the market through innovation and flawless execution, and look forward to helping our partners and customers ride the wave of the most exciting technology inflection since HD.”

The XCode 6400 SoC can decode HEVC based content and display resolutions up to Ultra HD 4K (3840x2160 pixels) at 10 bits and a full 60 frames per second. ViXS was the leading proponent of 10-bit media processing during the HEVC standards process and an active contributor to the formation of the technical specifications. The higher color bit depth is an absolute requirement for device manufacturers and service operators as it provides smoother color transitions during video display, resolving color-banding issues, and brings more than 1 billion colors to life in Ultra HD to the end consumer.

ViXS will demonstrate the power of its XCode 6400 family at the 2014 International CES, January 7-10, at the Las Vegas Convention Center (South Hall 2 - MP25953).

On display at the ViXS suite will be the following XCode 6400 Ultra HD 4K HEVC 10-bit solutions:
