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 video quality with power consumption. Its core video display processing technology intelligently processes video signals from various sources and optimizes the image for the viewer. The company’s products could be used in a range of devices from large flat panel displays to small low power mobile applications. Its products are designed to reduce overall system power requirements and reduce costs for its customers by minimizing bandwidth, reducing panel costs and optimizing the video display pipeline efficiency. The company’s primary target markets include digital projection systems, tablets, smartphones, and Ultrabook devices. Core Technologies and Products The company has developed a portfolio of video algorithms and IP to address a range of challenges in digital video. Its products are designed with a flexible architecture that allows it 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 majority of its products include one or more technologies to provide optimal high-quality Video Display Processing solutions to its customers, regardless of screen size. The company’s core Video Display Processing technologies include: 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. It also reduces halo effects that are a byproduct of MEMC. 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, that 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 only found in high quality televisions today. 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’s primary video display processor product categories include: 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 high-end display systems, such as projectors and high-resolution flat panels. ImageProcessor ICs were its 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. The company’s Video Co-Processor ICs could be used with its ImageProcessor ICs or with image processing solutions from other manufacturers, and in most cases could be incorporated by a display manufacturer.
