Sigma Designs, a leader in IP video streaming solutions, has announced that NEC Corporation has selected Sigma's EM8470 MPEG decoder for incorporation into its new AX10 Home Audio/Video Server. The AX10 was introduced by NEC last month as part of its new fall line-up of consumer multimedia products for the Japan market. NEC's AX10 is designed to function as an entertainment server in the home, accepting terrestrial broadcast signals that can be recorded, stored on a local hard drive and played back on either televisions or PC monitors. By using a large internal hard drive, the AX10 can support lengthy time recordings without the use of videotape, as well as allowing recorded information to be checked without actually viewing the program. In addition to user initiated recording, the unit can access the electronic program guide information for designating future programs to be recorded. The AX10 currently supports recording and playback of MPEG-2 video and MPEG-1 layer 2 audio. Sigma's EM8470, a featured hardware component in NEC's new product-line, supports video playback on the television and is envisioned for use with a broad range of video applications. The new EM8470 series, based on the company's award-winning REALmagic Video Streaming Technology, is the industry's first decoder chip to support MPEG-4 with full DVD resolution (720x576) as well as hardware DVD playback and streaming video based on ISMA or custom RTSP clients. The EM8470 provides a highly integrated solution for decoding of MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and MPEG-4 video content, Dolby(R) Digital, MPEG-1 Layers 1 and 2, AAC and CELP audio content, as well as complete output formatting for TV display.
