SANTA CLARA, USA: GEO Semiconductor Inc. (GEO), a leader in high performance, programmable video and geometry pixel processor IC solutions that enable large new market in LED-backlit LCD display and smartphone cameras (optics through sensor), announced the availability of its new eWARP platform demo board, code named Shasta, for display resolutions up to 2560 x1600 (WQXGA).
This platform employs two sxW2 ICs to enable seamless warp for a wide range of resolutions and also permits designers to achieve a higher level of corrections and rotation for standard displays with resolutions up to full HD (1920x1080).
Capable of performing all standard optical corrections such as keystone, pin-cushion and barrel distortion correction along with rotation of images, the platform also enables advanced features such as de-warp of fish-eye lenses, edge-blending of high definition video streams for two display devices (projectors / LCD panels), image stitching for two camera sensors in order to create higher resolution cameras, and color and brightness uniformity correction for image sensors, projectors and LCD Displays.
"The Shasta Platform provides designers with the ability to perform corrections, improvements and image enhancements on image capture (cameras / sensors) and displays up to WQXGA resolutions," said Madhu Rayabhari, VP of Marketing, Business Development and Engineering at GEO Semiconductor.
“In addition to the standard warp functions that perform optical corrections, this platform is key to achieving very high color and brightness uniformity corrections for Cameras, LCD displays, medical and professional monitors. It is also the basis for achieving perfect alignment on advanced 3D displays using projectors and passive glasses, while enhancing viewer comfort at lower cost points compared to displays using active shutter glasses.”
The Shasta board is available immediately. More details can be obtained by contacting GEO Semiconductor or its authorized representatives and distributors.
