NEC delivers new super resolution upconverting chip for 1080p HDTVs


Apparently already in a position to improve on its previous efforts, NEC has developed the µPD9280GM chip designed to expand low res images to 1920x1080 resolution with less blurring. Bettering the old uPD9245GJ by running at 150Mhz instead of the previous 108Mhz clock speed and expanding color quality from 24-bit to 30-bit "Deep Color," it also promises to do its super-resolution magic based on just one frame of image data instead of needing multiple frames and additional external memory. This chip will be going into mass production in July so regardless of how super-resolution compares to a true HD source, a wider (and cheaper) range of devices should be able to offer high quality image processing soon.
