Content producers, consumer electronics manufacturers and service
providers worldwide are scrambling to meet surging consumer demand for
premium viewing experiences incorporating Ultra HD 4K video. Continuing
its mission to take TV beyond the TV, Morega Systems Inc. today
announced that it has successfully demonstrated the industry's first
Ultra HD 4K media mobility solution, enabling consumers to enjoy the
world's most stunning video on any screen.
As a proven leader, Morega worked with long-term partner ViXS Systems
Inc. (TSX: VXS) to be first to market with an Ultra HD 4K solution.
ViXS' 8th-generation XCode
6400 10-bit High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) Ultra HD System-on-Chip
(SoC) is the first chip available on the market to meet the
challenges of 10-bit media processing in a single low-power,
cost-effective package - driving the transition to Ultra HD across the
entire content distribution value chain. The XCode 6400 delivers Ultra
HD 4K content at the full resolution of 3840x2160 up to 60 frames per
second in Main 10 Profile. The 10-bit HEVC processing enables greater
than 1 billion colors, creating smoother color transitions that resolve
color-banding issues plaguing lower bit-depth formats.
Morega's solution takes the pristine picture of Ultra HD beyond the
big-screen TV to all the other screens that matter to consumers, both
inside and outside of the home, in either streaming format or as a file
transfer for offline viewing. Morega has a complete system that includes:
a Media Mobility application embedded on video source devices (e.g. IP
applications for all mainstream consumer device platforms (iOS,
Android, MacOS, Windows), and
servers in the cloud to handle user & device management, remote
access, and capture of usage-based statistics with analytics.
Using Morega's field-proven technology, customers can rapidly deploy
reliable and scalable media mobility solutions that delight consumers,
creating higher satisfaction, improved stickiness, and incremental
"Consumers today require the content they love to always be available -
regardless of device or location," noted Morega CEO Buddy Snow. "Morega
has been leading the development of seamless media mobility for almost a
decade, and the achievement announced today - and made possible by ViXS'
extraordinary XCode 6400 SoC - further illustrates our commitment to
helping enrich consumers' lives through innovation."
Morega will showcase its Ultra HD 4K solution in the ViXS booth at the 2014
International CES, January 7-10, at the Las Vegas Convention Center
(South Hall 2 - MP25953).
