BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — OMAP™ processors from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) are moving beyond mobile devices to deliver incomparable processing power and performance to new markets. At Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012 this week in Barcelona, TI is showcasing innovative experiences driven by OMAP processors, including the smart digital home, enterprise mobility, cloud computing, augmented reality, natural user interfaces (NUIs), radical visual imaging and gaming on mobile devices and more.
“Visitors to the TI booth can immerse themselves in OMAP processor-driven experiences coming to all aspects of their lives – mobile, home, enterprise and beyond,” said Fred Cohen, director, OMAP Ecosystem, TI. “From stunning OMAP 5 processor demonstrations and lifestyle-changing augmented reality to the digital home experience and radically visual imaging, TI’s OMAP processors deliver the power and performance required for the next decade of applications and experiences.”
TI’s OMAP processor-based demonstrations in Hall 8, stand 8A84 include:
OMAP 5 platform: Mobile and beyond
OMAP 5 platform-empowered devices go beyond the traditional definition of “mobile” to power multiple screens and enable unprecedented multitasking. Discover multiple experiences with low latency wireless display UI cloning mode (leveraging Screenovate technology): watch full HD video, play rich and immersive games, take high resolution pictures with Zero shutter lag, and browse applications or the Web seamlessly, either directly on the device, or on a 1080p TV.
Digital home experience
Mobile devices will become the ultimate remote control for your home. See how OMAP processors allow you to stream full HD video, audio and games on a TV, and control you lighting systems and more from the comfort of the sofa – all without giving up the ability to use your device for other applications. The digital home room includes OMAP platform demonstrations using technology from Always Innovating, Fanhattan, Teknision and Screenovate.
Lifestyle-changing augmented reality
Augmented reality applications make life easier and more engaging by adding interactivity to formerly flat media. Experience augmented reality applications, driven by OMAP processors and using software from Metaio and Total Immersion, on end-products like eyeglasses and helmets, or TV and furniture, to get a realistic preview of how you or your home will look outfitted with new accessories.
With applications like touchless gesturing and mobile TV, the mobile lifestyle is more interactive and available anytime, anywhere. See how OMAP processors allow you to browse a cookbook and follow recipes without dirtying your screen, with Extreme Reality (XTR) and Stonetrip technologies. Securely stream your favorite live TV programs through the MobiTV mosaic UI right to your tablet screen, with OMAP security capabilities leveraging Trusted Logic solution, and enjoy surrounding audio effects from SRS Labs and TI Spatial audio.
Radically visual imaging
Mobile devices’ photo and video capabilities are so much more than point-and-click when they’re powered by OMAP processors. Experience the latest applications that, when paired with OMAP platform imaging technology and third party support from ArcSoft, Dolby, Morpho, Inc. and Scalado, make taking the perfect shots effortless and easily add fun special effects.
Visually stunning mobile games
Graphics- and feature-rich games have super fluidity and smooth responsiveness that only OMAP4470 and OMAP 5 processors can provide. Challenge yourself on cool, graphically impressive games from top names, such as Ubisoft, while discovering new ways to control games via zRRo’s Touch TV, which leverages multi-touch proximity sensing technology.
Mobile computing convergence
Today’s mobile devices truly make it possible to work anywhere, whether you’re accessing your desktop on the go, or conferencing and collaborating with colleagues across time zones. See how OMAP processors are powering the new world of work with third party companies Ittiam, Splashtop and Teradici.
TI’s pre-integrated platform with Renesas and STEricsson LTE modems coupled with the OMAP platform’s signature IVA-HD acceleration enables lightning-fast video streaming, uploading and downloading.
