Pixelworks, Inc. designs, develops and markets video and pixel processing semiconductors, intellectual property cores, software and custom ASIC solutions for digital video applications. The company’s products allow manufacturers and developers of digital display and projection devices to manufacture screens of all sizes that display the highest video quality with minimum power consumption. Its products could be used in a range of devices from large flat panel displays to small low power mobile applications. The company’s primary target markets include digital projection systems, digital televisions, Ultrabook devices, tablets, and smartphones. The company has an intellectual property portfolio of 130 patents related to the visual display of digital image data. The company focuses its research and development efforts on developing video improvement solutions for its target markets that increase performance, video quality, and device functionality. Core Technologies and Products The company has developed a portfolio of advanced video algorithms and IP to address a range of requirements in digital video. Its products are designed with an architecture that allows the company to combine algorithms and functional blocks of digital and mixed signal circuitry. Accordingly, the company’s technologies could be implemented across multiple products, in combinations within single products and could be applied to a range of applications, including smartphones, tablets, Ultrabook devices, televisions, monitors, and projectors. The company’s core Video Display Processing technologies comprise: Halo Free MEMC (Motion Estimation/Motion Compensation): The company’s proprietary Halo Free MEMC technology improves the performance and viewing experience of any screen by addressing problems, such as judder and motion blur. Advanced Scaling: The company’s advanced scaling is designed to ensure that up-conversion of lower resolution content is of the highest quality in maintaining the fidelity of image. Mobile Video Display Processing: The company has developed Video Display Processing solutions, which are designed to optimize power consumption for mobile devices. Beyond MEMC and Advanced Scaling, these mobile solutions provide the kind of improvements in color, contrast, sharpness and de-blur that are found in televisions. Furthermore, this technology could reduce system power consumption and extend battery life. VueMagic and Networked Displays: VueMagic uses the company’s networking technology to enable the same video stream to be networked across multiple displays for applications, such as connected video projection and digital signage. VueMagic provides interactive features for annotation and display control, and unlike other solutions, is device and operating system independent. The company plans to continue to focus its development resources to maintain position in the market and provide solutions for the advanced 3LCD (liquid crystal display) and DLP digital projection markets and to improve its video processing solutions for advanced flat panel displays and other emerging markets. The company’s primary video display processor product categories include the following: ImageProcessor Integrated Circuits (ICs): The company’s ImageProcessor ICs include embedded microprocessors, digital signal processing technology and software that control the operations and signal processing within display systems, such as projectors and high-resolution flat panels. ImageProcessor ICs are the company’s first product offerings and continue to comprise the majority of its business. Additionally, the company provides a software development environment and operating system that enables its customers to develop and customize the ‘look and feel’ of their products. Video Co-Processor ICs: Products in this category work with an image processor to post-process video signals to improve the performance or feature set of the overall video solution (by reducing judder and motion blur). The company’s Video Co-Processor ICs could be used with its ImageProcessor ICs or with image processing solutions from other manufacturers, and in var
