Next Gen Media Capabilities Available On NXP Chip
Voice commands will dominate 50 percent of all searches in the next two yearsÂ¹, increasingly thinner TVs are driving the popularity of sound bars for home automation, and consumers are embracing the Internet-of-Things (IoT) for creating more convenient richer sensory-driven experiences. To address the convergence of immersive sensory experiences fuelled by voice, video and audio demands, NXP Semiconductors N.V. has launched the i.MX 8M family of applications processors. The processors combine robust media capabilities on one chip to deliver a solid foundation for a new sensory world transformation.
In collaboration with key ecosystem leaders to enable seamless connectivity and intuitive experiences into the market, NXP i.MX 8M fueled by voice, video and audio help deliver a sensory world to meet the computing world.
"Interacting with machines will be as natural as using your human senses," said Martyn Humphries, vice president of consumer and industrial i.MX applications processor. "For instance, you can give a voice command to stream a specific TV episode and then ask a contextual question about the actor which initiates a search and displays results on the screen "“ all while your show is still streaming."
The NXP i.MX 8M processors address designers' requirements for one platform that combines A/V and machine learning to create connected products that can be controlled via voice command. The chips provide the process technology and edge computing needs to manage and reduce the command and question response time of smart connected devices. From smart TVs, television subscription services, sound bars and other smart speakers, to streaming media players and DVR/PVR, the i.MX 8M is leading the way for residential IoT and device control.
NXP will showcase its i.MX applications processor family at the NXP CES 2018 booth, CP-25, in Las Vegas between January 9-12.
