With its main functions, including three-dimensional (3D) noise reduction and 3D luminance/chrominance (Y/C) separation, integrated onto a single chip in miniaturized form, the uPD64012 chip enables design engineers to reduce a design's footprint by approximately 50 percent, system component costs by approximately 30 percent and the necessary large-scale integration time, thereby speeding time to market and lowering system costs.
The 'Angel Dual HQ' tuner card features hardware encoding on both channels provided by two NEC Electronics MPEG2 encoder devices (part number uPD61153) that offer a video decoder with three-dimensional (3D) luminance/chrominance (Y/C) separation, 3D noise reduction, and an MPEG-1/MPEG-2 encoder in a single chip.
Integrated in the single system LSI chip are a three-dimensional (3D) luminance/chrominance (Y/C) separator, digital video (D/V) format decoder and IEEE 1394 A/V link controller, as well as an A/V compression/decompression codec, a graphics controller, a video display controller and a high-performance CPU, the functions conventionally configured with multiple LSI chips.
This driver kit is developed for use with NEC Electronics' family of MPEG2 reference designs, including the uPD61151 MPEG2 encoder and uPD64011 video decoder with three-dimensional luminance/chrominance (3DYC) separator, as well as the recently announced uPD61153 encoder that integrates the MPEG2 and 3DYC technologies onto a single chip.
On display in the company's booth will be the recently announced uPD61181, the industry's first DVD recorder codec IC to incorporate a three-dimensional (3D) luminance/chrominance (Y/C) separator, digital video (DV) format decoder and IEEE 1394 A/V link controller in one single system LSI.

DVD output is formatted according to the YUV (YCrCb) standard, a luminance/chrominance model wherein the properties of colors are varied to create color output, rather than the mixture of colors themselves (as with RGB, which is used to display the output from TV signals).
