Philips Adds High-End Features to its Complete DVD+R/+RW Reference Design
Tuesday April 8, 1:14 pm ET
Nexperia(TM)-based system solution includes network connectivity, multi-format media processing and time shifting

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 8, 2003-- Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE:PHG - News; AEX:PHI) announced today it has added enhanced functionalities to Philips Nexperia(TM) DVD+R/+RW reference design. By seamlessly integrating Philips Nexperia(TM) media processor (such as the pnx1300 or pnx1500) with the pnx7100 MPEG CODEC at the heart of the system solution, Philips is offering consumer electronics (CE) manufacturers the ability to differentiate its end products based on a single flexible platform. In addition to the easy-to-use DVD+R/+RW recording functions, additional high-end features on the end device may include the ability to connect to the Internet and process multiple media formats like MPEG-4 and DivX.
With the rapid penetration of DVD recorders into the market, CE manufacturers are increasingly seeking ways to differentiate their products from those of competitors. To address this need to differentiate for next-generation DVD+R/+RW video recorders, Philips is combining its single-chip pnx7100 MPEG CODEC with its family of media processors to provide customers with advanced DVD capabilities. Philips Nexperia media processors (pnx1300/pnx1500) include an Ethernet controller for Internet connectivity -- the first step to any connected home. The media processor then offers compatibility with all of the leading multi-format streaming media standards such as MPEG-4, H.264 and DivX.

"Since Philips is an established leader and at the forefront of driving high-quality DVD technologies, it continues to drive innovation with its DVD+R/+RW product offerings for the connected home," said Jeroen Keunen, general manager for consumer and multimedia, Philips Semiconductors. "Philips is offering manufacturers the flexibility to develop a single high-end DVD+R/+RW platform for the consumer A/V market that is equipped to support emerging standards and advanced features without adding costs to the high-volume system."

Philips Nexperia DVD+R/+RW reference design is based on a front-end solution built around the Nexperia pnx7850 processor and an OPU manufactured by Philips. The back-end solution is built upon the Nexperia pnx7100, a single-chip AVG (Audio, Video, Graphics) MPEG-2 CODEC. Philips Nexperia family of media processors is powered by a high-performance TriMedia(TM) CPU core with additional instructions for optimized MPEG video processing. Fabricated in a low-power 0.13-Micron process, it is a power-efficient, high-performance, multi-format media processor for a variety of CE applications. Philips has seamlessly combined both the pnx7100 and pnx1300/pnx1500 onto one platform.

Pricing and Availability

A demonstration of the DVD+R/+RW platform complete with Philips Nexperia media processor will be shown in April 2003 in Tokyo, Japan and Seoul, Korea.

Samples of the Philips Nexperia DVD+R/+RW system solution with media co-processor are available now for select customers. Volume production is also available now. The pnx7100 sells for US$35 depending on volume and customer.

About DVD+R/+RW

The DVD+R/+RW standard is a compatible, rewritable DVD format developed by the DVD+RW Group -- an organization of industry-leading electronics manufacturers including Dell, HP, Microsoft, MCC/Verbatim, Philips, Ricoh, Sony, Thomson Multimedia and Yamaha.
