Trident Microsystems has unveiled a new Fusion HiDTV family of digital TV system-on-chips (SoCs) designed for the next generation of Smart-TVs with 200/240Hz video frame rate capabilities running on the Android platform. The Fusion HiDTV family integrates multiple CPUs and Trident’s patented MEMC technology to deliver high picture quality, OpenGL 2.0 3D graphics capabilities, Android OS support, and the ability to display to 21:9 screens for a true cinematic experience.??
The higher refresh rates of 240Hz TVs deliver better picture quality, particularly in larger screen TVs, and 240Hz is also an essential element for delivering quality 3D content.??
The Fusion HiDTV family is scheduled for commercial production in the first quarter of 2012.
