"People continually pursue clearer picture quality, richer colors, and
more realistic images, which drive the video industry in booming
"We are thrilled to collaborate with HiSilicon on the integration of
Dolby Vision VS10 into their STB chipset solutions," said
The HiSilicon Ultra HD chipset family includes Hi3798C V200 (4Kp60 with HDR), Hi3798M V100, and Hi3796M V100. The chipset series provides 4K solutions from entry level to high end. To build an advanced security system based on Android, the chipset series has already integrated ARM® TrustZone®, security video path, trusted execution environment (TEE), and forensic watermarking technologies. The security solution takes care of every detail of 4K security, protecting premium Ultra HD content. The protection chain can cover processes from power on, boot, Android kernel loading, middleware launching, and app running to UI operation.
Key features of Hi3798C V200 chipsets include the following:
The industry-leading quad-core ARM Cortex® A53 64-bit CPU
provides up to 15K DMIPS for the operator to deploy
Android TV/Android Open Source Projectservices and HTML5-based feature-rich media applications for an outstanding TV experience.
- The industry-first STB SoC for DVB and IPTV with Dolby Vision HDR technology provides an immersive best-in-class video quality experience.
- The HiVXETM2.0 video engine supports 2160p60 HEVC and VP9 decoding, 1080p PIP, and transcoding capability for flexible video sharing and playback.
A multi-core ARM
MaliTM-T720 GPU with OpenGL ES3.1/2.0/1.1/1.0, OpenVG1.1, EGL, and ImprexTM2.0 PQ engine, optimized for the Android gaming ecosystem, makes it possible for the operator to provide extreme gaming services for end users.
- A next-generation security engine that supports a secure video path with TrustZone, and hardware based video watermarking technologies that are in compliance with recent MovieLabs UHD premium service-delivery requirements.
Ultralow power for both standby and normal playback, sharing the common platform with the mobile chipset, HiSilicon STB chipsets integrate advanced low-power technologies for the design of energy-efficient products to help minimize environmental impact.
- A strong portfolio of software development kits (SDKs), including Android TV, Linux® middleware, and RDK enables operators to quickly deploy services and applications across all screens. Providing Android STBs for multiple generations since 2010, HiSilicon SDKs are stable and easy to use.
About Dolby Vision
Dolby Vision is a transformative technology for imaging that delivers a dramatic visual experience—astonishing brightness, incomparable contrast, and captivating color—that brings entertainment to life via OTT online streaming, broadcast, and gaming applications.
Even though most content is captured and rendered using technology that produces the colors and brightness of real life, much of that richness is lost by the time it gets to your living room. That's because current color-grading standards are based on the limitations of current television technologies and require that the content be altered to match their display performance—dramatically reducing the range of colors, brightness, and contrast.
Dolby Vision changes that, giving creative teams the freedom to use the full gamut of colors, peak highlights, brightness, and contrast, with the confidence that those will be reproduced faithfully on televisions that feature Dolby Vision technology.
As a universal HDR playback solution, Dolby Vision VS10 offers unique value by combining the ability to play back Dolby Vision content as well as other HDR formats based on the SMPTE ST 2084 standard through one integrated playback solution. This enables a high-quality HDR experience on products ranging from entry level to high end by leveraging the capabilities of the respective hardware as much as possible.
