Intel Corporation announced today in Beijing, China a system-on-chip media processor that will power the next generation of consumer electronic devices.
The Intel CE 2110 Media Processor is a complete system-on-a-chip (SoC) that combines a 1GHz processing core with A/V processing and graphics, and I/O components on a single chip. It is envisioned to be embedded in digital set top boxes and networked media players to bring advanced in-home information and entertainment services to consumers.
Taiwan service provider Chunghwa Telecom has adopted the new CE 2110 media processor for its Multimedia on Demand (MoD) service deployment. With the new SoC, Chunghwa plans to expand its high-definition video content, karaoke, e-banking and e-learning services, and introduce emerging usage models to consumers.
Intel says the CE 2110 Media Processor includes a powerful embedded 1 GHz Intel XScale CPU, MPEG-2 and H.264 hardware video decoders, DDR2 memory interface, 2D/3D graphics accelerators, and is supported by a modular software development environment.
