VIDEO: Receivers bring HDMI 1.3 to midrange TVs

Video IC provider Silicon Image Inc. rolled out four chips at the Consumer Electronics Show here last week, including two receivers that it said will push the HDMI 1.3 specification into midrange televisions. Silicon Image said manufacturers could use the SiI9125 dual-input HDMI receiver as a drop-in upgrade to add HDMI 1.3 capabilities to HDTVs. Its other new receiver, the SiI9135, supports high-bit-rate audio and is designed for audio/video receivers.
