Continuing its “mission to take TV beyond the TV”, Morega Systems have announced that it has successfully demonstrated the industry’s first Ultra HD 4K media mobility solution, enabling consumers to enjoy the world’s most stunning video on any screen.
Morega worked with long-term partner ViXS Systems to be first to market with an Ultra HD 4K solution. ViXS’ 8th-generation XCode 6400 10-bit High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) Ultra HD System-on-Chip (SoC) is the first chip available on the market to meet the challenges of 10-bit media processing in a single low-power, cost-effective package – driving the transition to Ultra HD across the entire content distribution value chain. The XCode 6400 delivers Ultra HD 4K content at the full resolution of 3840×2160 up to 60 frames per second in Main 10 Profile. The 10-bit HEVC processing enables greater than 1 billion colors, creating smoother color transitions that resolve color-banding issues plaguing lower bit-depth formats.
Morega’s solution takes the pristine picture of Ultra HD beyond the big-screen TV to all the other screens that matter to consumers, both inside and outside of the home, in either streaming format or as a file transfer for offline viewing.
“Consumers today require the content they love to always be available – regardless of device or location,” notes Morega CEO Buddy Snow. “Morega has been leading the development of seamless media mobility for almost a decade, and the achievement announced today – and made possible by ViXS’ extraordinary XCode 6400 SoC – further illustrates our commitment to helping enrich consumers’ lives through innovation.”
