Display Processor for Low-cost, Networked Micro Client Set-Top Box

The SiI6100 High-Definition LiquidHD Display Processor is a high-performance, high-definition system-on-a-chip (SoC) solution for low-cost, networked micro client set-top boxes for satellite, cable, terrestrial and IPTV. The SiI6100 enables multiple service operators (MSO) to deploy cost-effective, multi-room DVR and VOD services to their customers.

The SiI6100 can also be designed into digital TVs, enabling them to be connected to devices on a LiquidHD network and potentially eliminating the need for unsightly set-top boxes, DVD players, and other home entertainment equipment to be co-located next to the TV. Additionally, a LiquidHD-enabled TV can access any LiquidHD-enabled source box in the home such as DVR, PC or DVD players located in other rooms throughout the house.
