Socionext: HDMI 2.1 compatible video processing chips

Socionext has developed its new ‘HV5 series’, a family of HDMI 2.1 compatible video processing ICs, designed for transmission and reception of 8K video. Socionext will provide live demonstrations of the HV5 series at the upcoming CEATEC Japan 2018.

The HDMI 2.1 specifications were defined in 2017. It has 48Gbps bandwidth, 2.7x of conventional HDMI 2.0, and enables the transmission of extremely large data sets, including 8K video, with very low latency, while maintaining high image and sound quality. Socionext has extensive knowledge in the development of data transmission technologies for consumer video equipment such as recorders and 4K TVs, as well as for high-speed, serial data transmission used in large-scale servers.

The HV5 series represents video processing ICs with built-in HDMI 2.1 compatible Tx / Rx. Leveraging the company’s expertise, Socionext plans to propose a variety of video systems built around the HV5 series, including 8K TVs in Japan where the commercial 8K broadcasting will commence. The HV5, with ultra-high definition image characteristics, is also targeted for public signage and medical applications, among other uses.

The SC1H05AC series is a family of interface bridge ICs, which enable transmission of 8K video with built-in HDMI 2.1 Tx. The SC1H05AC01 is for HDMI 2.0 input, and the SC1H05AC02 for V-by-One input. Existing 8K video equipment requires 4 lines of HDMI 2.0 cables to deliver 8K images, and that is one of the major restrictions for installation and handling of the equipment. SC1H05AC allows the connection with a single cable.

The SC1H05AT1 is optimized for the use in 8K TV sets. The device supports the Advanced BS 8K Broadcasting, which is scheduled to start in Japan later this year. It is also equipped with the video processing functionalities for 8K video inputs from external sources to meet the growing demand for 8K video content playback in the global market. SC1H05AT1 is applicable with V-by-One input and output, as well as with HDMI 2.0/2.1. In addition, the up-scaler functionality and Socionext's proprietary high picture quality technology of HV5 are capable of supporting the playback of Full HD (2K) / 4K video content on 8K panels with the optimum quality.
