Realtek 8K Video Decoder and Processing IC (RTD2893) Wins Best Choice of the Year at COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2019


HSINCHU, Taiwan – May 28, 2019 – Realtek Semiconductor Corp. (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 2379.TW), one of the world’s leading network and multimedia IC providers, announced today that the Realtek RTD2893 won the Best Choice of the Year award at COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2019.

The Realtek RTD2893 can upgrade a 4K TV platform to a fully functional 8K TV. Support for 8K AV1/HEVC/VP9 video decoding, HDMI 2.1 8K input and output, secure video bit stream transmission over USB/PCIe, and 8K video processing including all HDR formats allows the RTD2893 to dramatically reduce 8K TV development time for all TV brands. The RTD2893 presents a very cost competitive 8K TV solution with all DDR memory inside.

The 8K TV or set top box penetration rate will depend on the maturity of the 8K solution. Using only the RTD2893 IC, an existing 4K TV or set top box platform can be easily upgraded to a stable, high performance, 8K platform. This simple upgrade can reduce customer’s development resource costs and significantly speed up time-to-market.

“We are honored to receive the Best Choice of the Year award at COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2019”, said Realtek’s Vice President and Spokesman, Yee-Wei Huang. “Our RTD2893 allows a 4K TV or STB to be easily upgraded to a fully functional 8K device. We expect this breakthrough will lead to faster expansion of the 8K market and allow viewers to enjoy the richness of 8K content at a lower hardware cost point”.
