Silicon Image’s InstaPort technology is being featured across a broad range of Sony’s 2011 Bravia LCD TV models. InstaPort reduces port-switching time between HDMI-enabled devices connected to the LCD TV. InstaPort-enabled digital TVs will work with any HDMI-connected source device to reduce the delay that typically occurs when switching between devices.
Port processors are platforms for innovation that offer new features, technologies and standards for DTVs that go above and beyond the basic HDMI switch function offered by analog switches. In addition to InstaPort, the port processor featured in Sony’s Bravia LCD TV models offers integrated HDMI receivers with dynamic equalization to deliver uncompressed HD video, multi-channel audio and data over HDMI cables.
