Home Theater PC Chip for TeraLogic
TeraLogic faced a common challenge for media electronics companies. They already had an HDTV decoder chip for set top boxes, and they wanted to leverage that existing technology to expand into an additional market.
TeraLogic approached Videon to adapt their existing HDTV decoder chip for use in an HTPC (Home Theater Personal Computer) application. Videon adapted the chip with a tuner and decoder specifically designed for HTPC applications. We also integrated our technology with the existing TeraLogic chip for seamless flow of media.
Our engineering solutions streamlined important aspects of the product, such as reducing the signal to noise ratio, that added value and appeal. More importantly, the resulting product allowed TeraLogic to use an existing technology to enter a new market.
