LONDON and TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Imagination Technologies (IMG.L) announces that ALi Corporation, a leading set-top box (STB) chipset provider, is shipping a MIPS-based, H.265-capable System-on-Chip (SoC) for hybrid cable, satellite, terrestrial and IP STBs. MIPS CPUs are firmly established in the STB market, shipping inside many of the most widely adopted products.

ALi’s chipsets offer operators and device manufacturers high-performance and cost-effective solutions for next-generation STBs with the latest technologies. Its new MIPS CPU enabled chipset integrates a large-capacity L2 cache for optimum performance in HTML5-based applications. In addition, the new SoC integrates ALi’s latest advanced security engine for CAS and DRM compliance as well as a refreshed user interface that enables developers to create rich applications on a range of modern operating systems optimized for DTVs and STBs. With support for H.265 high-efficiency video codec, the chipset is designed to efficiently receive HD and UHD video content over today’s limited bandwidth connections.

Says Jim Nicholas, EVP MIPS Processor IP, Imagination: “MIPS CPUs are at the heart of many of today’s most popular digital televisions and set-top boxes. We’ve been working closely with ALi to ensure they get the best possible performance from MIPS CPUs in their new chipset to ensure their customers achieve a rich multimedia experience at the lowest possible system cost and power consumption.”

Says Daniel Huang, CEO, ALi Corp.: “Thanks to the high-performance MIPS CPU, powerful computation capability, and a high degree of integration, our new chipset offers STB manufacturers a high-quality, cost-effective solution. By using Imagination’s ultra-efficient MIPS CPUs, ALi has designed a new H.265-capable SoC that will help broadcasters to maximize bandwidth utilization and pay TV operators to increase profitability while also providing a better user experience for consumers.”

Imagination offers a wide range of 32- and 64-bit MIPS CPUs for digital home applications. For more details, visit http://imgtec.com/mips/.
