ViXS Systems, a leading developer of video networking chipsets and software, and Intersil Corporation, a world leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance analog and wireless networking solutions, announced their collaboration in offering design tools for the transmission of video over standardized 802.11g.  The result is a software development kit (SDK) that combines ViXS' XCode with Intersil's PRISM GT chipset and PRISM Nitro technology.  The combination of the two chipsets ensures that consumer electronics manufacturers can quickly bring products to market that offer full standard compliance to existing 802.11b systems while delivering high-quality digital video over the same wireless network.

ViXS' XCode integrated circuit can adjust the bit-rates, resolutions and formats of multiple MPEG video streams in real time, adapting each stream to changing network bandwidth. As a result, products such as digital video recorders (DVRs), media gateways or set-top boxes can distribute high-quality digital video to any networked display device in the home, such as HDTVs, plasma and LCD TV monitors, PDAs, web tablets, personal computers and personal video recorders (PVRs).  By managing the video stream, XCode is the first to guarantee 30 frames per second of high-quality video over any type of Internet protocol (IP) network, including 802.11.  The XCode SDK is currently available and being used by leading consumer electronics manufacturers to develop next-generation video wireless products.

Intersil's advanced PRISM GT chip set solution incorporates Intersil's SingleSource(TM) Driver Suite with PRISM Nitro technology that delivers up to a 3x improvement in throughput for 802.11g clients operating in mixed-mode wireless networks and up to 50 percent greater throughput performance in 802.11g only networks.  PRISM GT is an ideal solution for high-bandwidth applications, such as wireless video streaming.
