Chip architecture can be easily scaled from low-cost high-definition video decoders to high-performance real-time multichannel video encoders and transcoders.

French fabless semiconductor startup MnD Semiconductors has developed a chip architecture that can be easily scaled from low-cost high-definition video decoders to high-performance real-time multichannel video encoders and transcoders Called Silver Screen, it will be launched at the IBC 2006 show in Amsterdam on Stand 7.925

MnD is now looking to turn this architecture into a family of chips with the primary focus being on high definition (HD) encoding, transcoding and decoding solutions for mobiles.

The increasing integration of camcorders into mobile phones means that manufacturers need to be able to encode HD video, transcode it to MPEG4 AVC/H.264 to minimise storage space and then play it back at H
