Sigma Designs Launches New EasyTV(TM) Dongle With Wireless Display at
CES 
Display Media Content From Any Compatible Mobile Source Through HDMI
to TV 
LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 --  Sigma Designs(R)
(NASDAQ: SIGM), a leading provider of system-on-chip (SoC) solutions
for home entertainment, connectivity and converging multimedia
delivery, today announced that they will be launching the EasyTV
Dongle reference design. EasyTV is an innovative, simple and
affordable solution that provides an easy-to-use wireless link
between mobile devices and HDMI TV sets.  
Based on Sigma's power efficient SMP8674 chip and Qualcomm Atheros's
AR6203 chip (802.11N technology), EasyTV enables users to access
multimedia on their cell phone, tablet or laptop and share it on a
large screen or projector. Consumers can share media content such as
YouTube videos, movies, photos and cloud-based applications and
services on a TV screen. Business users can share presentations and
data visualization through a projector's HDMI port. 
By plugging the small EasyTV Dongle into a television's HDMI input,
consumers automatically have a direct connection between any media
content from a mobile phone, tablet or PC and their TV screen. This
simple peer-to-peer protocol allows mobile device users to share what
was once personal content with a larger audience by using Wi-Fi(R) to
have the source device talk to the display device. Sigma plans to
seek Wi-Fi Miracast(TM) certification from Wi-Fi Alliance(R) for
EasyTV.  
"EasyTV is positioned for exponential growth by being able to work
with an open networking technology," said Ken Lowe, Sigma Design's
vice president of Strategy. "EasyTV is a full production-ready
turn-key design. We are very excited about Sigma's leading position
and are currently engaged with multiple OEMs to embed our technology
in many future applications such as, DTVs, projectors, docking
stations, set-top boxes, and media players."  
Key Features: 


 
--  Source and display automatic device pairing in a peer-to-peer
    relationship with any certified source devices
--  Display output on HDMI 1.4.with up to 1080p resolution supported
--  Business card sized Dongle for portability
--  Powered from television USB ports or external power adaptor
--  Applicable for business and personal use

  
The new EasyTV Dongle will be displayed at CES at the Las Vegas Hotel,
Suite 2921 January 8-January 11.
