SILICON OPTIXâ€™S REALTA HQV CHIP WINS SILVER
BEST OF CES 2005 AWARD
San Jose, Calif. (Mar. 1, 2005)â€”Silicon Optixâ€™s RealtaÃ” chip with Hollywood Quality Video (HQVÃ”) has been honored with a â€œSilver Best of CES 2005â€ award for Electronics and Algorithms from Kahn Internationalâ€™s Private Line Report.
â€œSince its launch in September, the Realta chip has received lots of praise and recognition as the new high end of video processing, but the fact that Realta is now in a shipping product, Denonâ€™s 5910 DVD player, makes it real, and is the reason we gave them this award,â€ said Fred Kahn, editor of Private Line Report.
Realta originates from Teranexâ€™s $60,000 broadcast and postproduction platforms. Teranexâ€™s software algorithms run on Realtaâ€™s fully programmable, trillion-operations-per-second video processing engine to deliver a new standard in image quality, a standard Silicon Optix is calling Hollywood Quality Video, or HQV.
The Realta HQV processor has already won seven awards, including the CES 2005 â€œBest of Innovationsâ€ award for the Embedded Technologies category, â€œMost Promising New Technologyâ€ and â€œMost Exciting New Companyâ€ from The Perfect Vision, â€œBest Buzzâ€ of CEDIA from Insight Media, AVGuide Monthlyâ€™s â€œBest Product Overall,â€ Red Herringâ€™s â€œTop 100 Innovatorsâ€ award, and now, Fred Kahnâ€™s â€œSilver Best of CESâ€ award.
