Cinemo, a multimedia technology developer, and Fujitsu Semiconductor Europe have teamed on the optimisation of Cinemo's automotive-grade multimedia solutions for Fujitsu's existing and planned Cortex SoC families.

Cinemo's embedded multimedia technologies, targeted at in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), consumer electronics and embedded industrial computing, will now have an increased list of supported hardware.

The 'Emerald' family of SoCs from Fujitsu is based on ARM's Cortex-A9 CPU core and is positioned as a leading graphic controller chip for automotive applications. Under the partnership, Cinemo's Unified Media Player will be optimised to support this architecture, and to deliver frame-accurate and lip-synchronised playback over a low-bandwidth network connecting multiple displays with built-in support for all popular A/V formats, codecs and containers.

Cinemo says it will optimise its solution to create "the best multimedia experience for Fujitsu's Emerald platform." This translates to creating a robust and reliable solution with the lowest CPU usage possible for Tier-One suppliers and car manufacturers.

Fujitsu claims that no one else in the market is able to offer these solutions, including support for all formats, a rich feature set including pure software-based implementation for rear-seat entertainment, and robust and reliable automotive-grade products with low power consumption. The companies plan to demo the MB86R11 and MB86R12 SoCs belonging to the Emerald family coupled with Cinemo's Unified Media Player to Tier-Ones and car manufacturers starting this month.
