Realtek Announces the RTD1073 High-Performance Digital Media Processor with Hardware Decoder for All Mainstream HD AV Formats


Highly Integrated SoC RTD1073, Supports 1080P H.264/VC1/MPEG2/MPEG4 and 720P RMVB, with Complete Software/Hardware Reference Designs

HSINCHU, Taiwan – September 9, 2009 – Realtek Semiconductor Corp. (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 2379.TW), one of the world’s leading network and multimedia IC providers, announced today its third generation Digital Media Processor (DMP), the RTD1073, for the consumer electronics market. The RTD1073 provides a hardware decoder for all mainstream HD AV formats, including 1080P H.264/VC1/MPEG2/MPEG4 and 720P RMVB.
The RTD1073 represents Realtek’s third generation media processing technology and incorporates three major HD specifications.
  • BD HD: Supports all three video encoding formats of Blu-ray Disc. Currently, H.264, VC1, and MPEG2 take around 55%, 30%, and 15% market share each. The RTD1073 supports 1.25x 1080P HD decoding, ensuring decoding capabilities provide top quality viewing pleasure.
  • RMVB HD Support: RMVB (RealMedia Variable Bitrate) is a multimedia container format developed by RealNetworks. Widely used in Asia and the Chinese market, the RMVB playback requirement has been raised to 720P (1280*720).
  • Full HD: Offers 1080@60p, 32-bit HD OSD, advanced DNR (Digital Noise Reduction), MADi (Motion Adaptive De-interlace), and Multi-Tap Scaling Filter to ensure that RTD1073 picture quality matches Full HD TV set quality.

“Our development process has focused both on quality engineering to improve playback quality and features, as well as on widening the range of playback formats supported. The RTD1073 offers high-performance playback of even more AV formats, including all common Internet formats”, said Shih-Yu Ku, Chief Product Officer of the Realtek DMP Product Line. “This flexibility removes end-user frustration, and provides the freedom needed to enjoy AV playback without being concerned with decoder compatibilities. With complete software and hardware reference designs supplied, our high-value-oriented customers can speed development of top-of-the-line products that end-users want”. The RTD1073 integrates HDMI 1.3, USB2.0 Host and Device, SATA, Fast Ethernet MAC and PHY, 12-bit Video DACs, and Digital Audio Output. It supports a Wireless LAN IEEE 802.11b/g/n in-house total solution, as well as rich network protocols for advanced Internet functions development. The RTD1073 simplifies design and lowers cost via a NAND-boot feature, and is supplied in a 256-pin LQFP package.
