Toshiba to use Silicon Image HDMI Chip
Posted on 28-Apr-2006 08:25 by H Willan | Tags Filed under: News



Toshiba will use the Silicon Image Sil 1930 HDMI transmitter chip in the next Toshiba Qosmio G30/G97HS notebooks, making this series the first with HDMI output.

The Qosmio G30/G97HS notebooks will come with HD DVD drives and with the HDMI output support can display the high definition image at up to 1920x1080 pixels. Current DVDs support only 852x480 pixels.

The G30/G97HS also comes with both a digital and analog TV tuner which can then be output through the HDMI interface and will allow users to watch content on their HDTV, it will be available from mid May 2006.

Silicon Image produces two high definition transmitter chips. The Sil 1930 supports a TMDS input interface from discrete graphics processors and the Sil 1390 supports Intel's SDVO interface.

The HDMI interface outputs both video and audio over a single HDMI cable without any compression.
