ViXS Systems Inc. has launched a low-cost, feature-rich digital terrestrial TV tuner card reference design for the rapidly growing GB20600-2006 market in China. The design will allow users to inexpensively and easily capture, display and record HDTV broadcast programs on their PC or laptop.

In cooperation with Tsinghua University, Legend Silicon has developed GB20600-2006 as a standard which has been adopted by China as the foundation for all digital terrestrial TV broadcast (DTTB). Among its many benefits, the GB20600-2006 provides high-quality broadcast TV to indoor, fixed, portable and mobile TV clients.

The ViXS XCode 2100 Series ASIC will provide advanced video processing features such as flexible interconnectivity, bitrate reduction, transcoding, DRM and other security features—all in a low-cost ASIC.

"ViXS' significant market share in the PC tuner card market in Japan and North America, as well as their cost-effective platform and future-proofed feature set, is exactly what we were looking for from a partner," said Lin Yang, co-founder, chairman of the board and chief technology officer of Legend Silicon.

"ViXS is thrilled to work with Legend Silicon in the development of this important product for the Chinese market. Chinese viewers have long been waiting for a quick and easy way to capture and record digital perfect video onto their PCs, and as we approach the Beijing Olympics the demand for recording HD broadcast will rapidly increase," said Sally Daub, president and CEO of ViXS Systems.
