VIA launches a new digital TV encoder

— 10:53 AM on July 23, 2004

The home theater PC market received a jolt today with the launch of VIA's VT1625 HDTV Encoder.

"As Personal Electronics based on the x86 platform become more integral in the living room, the VIA VT1625 HDTV encoder provides a crucial platform component that delivers a high resolution viewing experience," commented Steve Chen, Executive Assistant to the President, VIA Technologies, Inc. "Supporting resolutions up to 1080i, the VIA VT1625 enables connections to virtually all displays, and its advanced feature set ensures that regardless of the input, output or resolution, the graphics quality will be superb."
Hopefully, VIA can score some design wins. Its main commercial competitor, ATI's HDTV Wonder, uses the Philips TUV1236D HDTV compliant tuner.
