Analog Devices ADV 8002 Video Processor

Analog Devices is known mostly for I/O (input/output) chips, but the company is showing its new video processor at CES. The ADV 8002 includes two scalers, motion-adaptive deinterlacing, noise reduction, and video enhancement, and it can pass 3D without processing it. The production version will have at least two HDMI inputs and two outputs as well as all the standard analog-video inputs, and it will be able to process two different programs independently and simultaneously—for example, sending 1080p to an HDTV and 480p to an SD display in another room. This processor should be shipping in consumer products this spring, though the company rep would not reveal from whom.
