AverLogic is going
to demonstrate HDMI 1080p High-Definition AV Streaming over Ethernet
or Power-line Reference Design using the Fujitsu H.264/AVC-Compliant
MB86H52 CODEC at CES 2009
(Taipei, Dec. 12th,
2008) AverLogic Technologies, Corp. (TOSE 6198), the
video-processing IC and specialty-memory design company, will
collaborate with Fujitsu Microelectronics America, Inc. (FMA) to
deliver an HDMI 1080p High-Definition AV streaming total solution
for consumer electronics manufacturers serving the High-Definition
(HD), AV, whole-home video-streaming and cable-replacement markets.
The solution, enabled with leading power-line communications (PLC)
technology, will be demonstrated at CES 2009 in Las Vegas, January
8-11, at the AverLogic booth, number 25309, in the LVCC South Hall
The HDMI 1080p
High-Definition AV streaming solution combines Fujitsu’s H.264/AVC-compliant
MB86H52 CODEC with AverLogic’s AL9M803 Media Network Controller.
This solution allows High-Definition content (up to 1920x1080 at the
frame rate of 24p or 60i) to be streamed over an Ethernet cable or
other bandwidth-limited media, and be received at a remote HDMI
receiver. The system consists of a pair of transmitter and receiver
reference designs. Both can be adapted easily to various forms of
home multimedia applications to transmit HD video/audio content
anywhere in a home to any HDTV display without the long, expensive
HDMI cables. The design can also take advantage of PLC technologies
to stream High-Definition video/audio via existing whole-home power
lines, without the need to install new wiring.
The reference design
incorporates leading-edge processors from both companies to preserve
the best video and sound quality while providing a reliable data
transmission over the network. “AverLogic’s media network controller
is extremely synergistic with Fujitsu’s H.264 compression
technology, making this innovative High-Definition sender possible.
We will have a live demonstration at our booth in CES to provide
users with the most up-to-date information” said Kyle Chang, the CEO
“The combination of
AverLogic’s advanced media network controller with the Fujitsu
H.264-compliant technology delivers the optimal solution for the
state-of-the-art high-definition streaming,” said Davy Yoshida,
Director of Business Development for Fujitsu Microelectronics
America. “The top-notch video and sound quality with minimum
bandwidth requirements provided by Fujitsu’s H.264-compliant
technology, coupled with the highly reliable data transmission from
AverLogic, offers a simple, versatile reference design for a wide
range of A/V applications.”
More about Fujitsu’s H.264/AVC-Compliant MB86H52
Fujitsu MB86H52 is an HD H.264/AVC CODEC as well as an HD MPEG-2 to
H.264 Transcoder. Configured in CODEC mode, it compresses HD raw
video from 1.5Gbps into 20Mbps H.264/AVC bit-streams up to 1920x1080
at 60 interlaced frames or 24 progressive frames per second. Enabled
as a Transcoder, MB86H52 fully decodes HD MPEG-2 bit-streams (a
format commonly used in cable, satellite and terrestrial
broadcasting domains) and re-encodes them
with the same video quality into HD H.264/AVC bit-streams at less
than half the data
size. This feature improves the storage capacity in PVR applications
by 2.5 times as well in as reduces the bandwidth required for
real-time video transmission.

More about AverLogic’s AL9M803B-LF-PBF
series chips, including the AL9M801, AL9M802 and AL9M803, are MAC
controllers for multimedia networking applications. The series acts
with many interfaces for bridging multimedia content, including
video, audio, voice or compressed VGA streams. With the many
physical layer network structures, the chips can support wireless,
power-line communication, Ethernet, and Home-PNA interfaces. Please
refer to the IC order form for more information.
The AL9M80x chips
provide a proprietary data-flow control infrastructure for a smooth
streaming of multimedia content. They stream video plus audio from
source devices, such as STB, DVD players and DTV tuners to
video-receiving devices, such as TV monitors. The chips can also
stream audio from a home-theater system to its surround speakers,
and music from an i-Pod charging dock to speakers in different
