Sigma Designs' SMP8910 is an STB SoC that integrates VXP studio quality video processing and 3D video processing. It reaches more than 6,000DMIPS with its dual-core 1004K MIPS CPU.

The chip features a distributed processing architecture with a task-optimised CPU that manages key processes, including HD multi-format video decoding, 3D graphics rendering, content protection and security management and multi-format audio encoding and decoding. It leaves more than 3,000 DMIPS of available processing for middleware, STB applications and the latest over-the-top (OTT) applications.

VXP technology creates a rich, studio-grade viewing experience in demanding applications such as digital cinema projectors, prosumer AV receivers and processors, broadcast monitors, and premium quality Blu-ray players. The SMP8910 also includes two new VXP features: de-ghosting and adaptive de-banding. De-ghosting reduces ghosting artifacts present on most current 3DTVs by pre-processing the 3D video before driving the 3DTV, resulting in a more pleasing and less fatiguing viewing experience. Adaptive de-banding reduces colour contouring, commonly seen as bands of colour instead of continuously smooth shading, resulting in a more pleasing image without loss of detail, especially on large displays.

The solution provides H.264 Multi-View Codec (MVC) decoding, which enables full HD resolution 3D video per eye. In addition to MVC, the SMP8910 also supports the decoding of and conversion to multiple other 3D formats such as Sensio, RealD, TDVision, checkerboard, side-by-side, top bottom, anaglyph and more.

Sigma Designs designed the SMP8910 to support content streaming. By combining MVC decoding and VXP post-processing, service providers can now transmit full HD 3DTV without increasing bandwidth or decreasing video quality.
