IDF Trails: Oplus In Detail

Though IDF already ended in San Francisco last week, there are still news to post. This time it's about Intel's solution for HDTV, plasma panels and personal multimedia players - Oplus MN301 system-on-a-chip - a "digital display processor".

According to Don MacDonald, who introduced the novelty at IDF, this processor provides high contrast and better colors (better than existing solutions, I guess). The image actually looks good, judging by the photos we have. At that, the same chip is able to scale image for both large and small images (and displays).

At IDF they showcased a reference design of a dual-channel HDTV receiver:

So what exactly can Oplus solutions offer, that Intel even acquired its developer for about $100 million in April this year?

Besides a variety of applicaions, Oplus Image Perfecting Engine offers the following:

  • Patented algorithms of improving image contrast and detail
  • 3D noise reduction
  • Adaptive de-interlacing
  • Saturation and brightness control for each color component
  • Improved skin colors
  • Adaptive contrast adjustment
  • Pixel mode detection algorithm; reversible pixel-level video conversion to 3:2 (NTSC) or 2:2 (PAL)
  • Image orientation detection and adjustment
  • Linear and non-linear scaling
  • Keystone correction algorithms for projectors
  • Different window modes of video and TV output
