Sigma Designs, a provider of system-on-chip (SoC) solutions used to deliver entertainment and control throughout the home today announced that they will be showcasing a new range of 3D video and 3D graphics technologies at the CES 2010.

At CES, Sigma will demonstrate 3D video capability that takes advantage of advanced 3D video algorithms and content from RealD to show stereoscopic output on a 3D equipped television. This 3D video platform is based on Sigma’s SMP8644 media processor combined with Sigma’s GF9452 VXP video processor which will output full HD left eye/right eye interleaved images. Additionally, the demonstration will provide image enhancement of the 3D content using proprietary VXP detail enhancement and adaptive contrast enhancement algorithms.

As a second demonstration, there will be also a showcase of the robust 3D graphics capability that operates over the OpenGL ES interface to render high performance 3D imaging. This 3D graphics platform is based on Sigma’s latest silicon that offers a new 3D engine - featuring a tile-based architecture with a universal shader engine supporting multi-threaded operations with both pixel and vertex shading. It is capable of rendering 16 million polygons/second, pixel fill rates of 500 million pixels/second, and texture element fill rates of over 100M texels/second.

3D is the new frontier for consumer electronics. HD was yesterday, now media chips need to also deal with decoding 3D data.
