According to Media Excel, their MPEG-2 software decoder
running on Intel's low power chipset has had tremendous market success in the emerging IP-STB market segments and have recently caught the eye of Consumer Electronic companies that manufacture devices such as Networked DVD players, Home Gateways, Personal Media Players (PMP), Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (DMB) devices, and Mobile Phones.
The Audio Decoder
Framework within the Harmony development environment is intended to reduce the development time for creating a multiple-format audio decoder
application," said Rod Drake, vice president of Microchip's MCU32 Division.
Rather than give two decoders
partial information, it might seem more efficient to send all the clues to a single decoder
, in closer analogy with how crosswords are usually solved.
Then the demodulator converts the analog signals to digital signals and reduces the signals to baseband signals with central frequency at 10MHz, which are absolutely digital signals here, the MPEG decoder
converts these digital signals to analog signals, the analog signals here are still interlaced scanning signals which will become progressive scanning signals after the interpolation algorithm of back-end image processing.
The DAVID System, selected for use in multiple trials and deployments such as Bell Atlantic, NYNEX, Hong Kong Telecom and Telecom Australia, is an open operating system environment for interactive television decoders
that can be used in telephone, cable television and wireless networks.
The company's product offering includes silicon tuners, demodulators, MPEG audio and video decoders
, and dial-up and DOCSIS modems.
LSI Logic also announced a family of MPEG products including an MPEG video decoder
, MPEG audio decoder
and a family of Reed-Solomon decoders
/encoders in February 1993.
As a result of its high security, program providers, rights holders and cable companies can expect increased income because illegal decoder
boxes will no longer siphon away revenue from premium and PPV programs.

ICs are being used in both mobile applications and line-powered devices.
units will be placed in MBC's Seoul central broadcast center, while decoders
