NEC Electronics has announced the availability of a new image-processing solution, the EMMA3SL/P system-on-chip (SoC) based on NECs’ enhanced multimedia architecture (EMMA) platform. The new SoC is a set-top box (STB) device compliant with H.264 high-definition (HD), as well as the multi-format video support used for the increasing number of worldwide IPTV STBs. The new SoC is also the first among the company’s EMMA products to support China’s audio/video standard.

The EMMA3SL/P is an image-processing SoC that integrates key functions needed to receive and decode digital broadcasts, including MPEG-2 HD audio/video decoders, transport-stream demultiplexers, as well as display controllers for enhanced display and graphics features.

Due to specific emerging demand for increased multi-format video especially in Europe, Asia, and Latin America, NEC announced an expansion of its STB device roadmap with advanced security features and cost efficiency, building on technology gained from previous products.
