TranSwitch’s HDplay Solution Selected by Edge I&D for New High Definition Interactive LED-LCD Display Whiteboards

TranSwitch Corporation (NASDAQ: TXCC), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions in the rapidly growing consumer electronics and telecommunications markets, today announced that the Company’s HDplay™ transceiver has been designed into Edge I&D’s new Interactive LED-LCD Display Whiteboards. The interactive whiteboard models, using TXC-44144 HDplay transceivers, will be available in displays ranging in size up to 84 inches and can support 4Kx2K video resolution. Edge I&D is a Korea-based ODM for interactive education tools and commercial multimedia applications, including interactive whiteboards which display video using a large screen, enabling a user to annotate and manipulate presentations in real time using touch screen technology.

According to a new report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc., global sales of interactive whiteboards are expected to reach US $1.85 Billion by 2018. The source devices for interactive whiteboards are expected to increasingly feature both HDMI® and DisplayPort™ connectivity. TranSwitch’s HDplay transceivers are optimized to support these trends by combining both HDMI and DisplayPort standards, as well as utilizing the Company's patented AnyCable™ technology to maintain high definition video performance over long cable runs.

“Our new interactive display whiteboards are powerful tools with broad applications for education, business meetings, training, and other collaborative environments,” said Maeng Sungyeol, chief technical officer at Edge I&D. “Working with TranSwitch, we are able to deliver flexible solutions that enable users to easily and reliably connect a variety of source devices while providing high definition video quality, robust interactive tools, and a simple user interface.”

“Our integrated HDplay solution provided the optimal high-speed video interconnect for Edge I&D’s interactive display requirements, while supporting HDMI and DisplayPort to provide unparalleled video connectivity flexibility in a single IC,” said Tim Blanke, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at TranSwitch. “We see increasing adoption of our HDplay product family across a variety of applications driven by performance requirements and the growing emergence of source devices supporting new video connectivity standards. We are excited to be working closely with Edge I&D to enable these next-generation interactive displays which are targeted for production ramp by the end of March 2013.”

TranSwitch’s HDplay transceivers are the industry’s only solutions that combine both HDMI and DisplayPort on a single integrated circuit. This level of integration enables manufacturers to reduce space requirements, design complexity, and overall cost, while speeding time-to-market. HDplay transceivers also incorporate TranSwitch’s patented AnyCable technology, which enables the use of long, less expensive HDMI cables with less shielding. Displays and devices that use HDplay provide the end-user with greater flexibility when selecting multimedia devices, peripherals, and cables.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?
