On the afternoon of March 3, MediaTek released the latest 4K smart TV chip mt9638, which is now in mass production. The terminal products will be launched in the second quarter of 2021.
Mt9638 integrates an independent AI processor APU, supports AI super-resolution (AI-Sr), AI image quality enhancement (ai-pq), AI voice assistant and other AI technologies, and has MEMC motion compensation function.
Among them, ai-pq identifies the content scene through artificial intelligence, adjusts the color saturation, brightness, sharpness, dynamic compensation and intelligent noise reduction frame by frame for different scenes, so as to improve the overall image quality.
AI-Sr technology improves the resolution of the original image through multi frame fusion, so that users can get higher resolution and clearer image quality.
In addition, smart TV will become one of the linkage control centers of smart home devices. MediaTek also actively promotes the popularization of advanced technologies such as VRR, Wi Fi 6 and HDMI 2.1 in the smart TV market, and brings innovative human-computer interaction through applications such as AI voice and AI video call, so as to comprehensively upgrade the video game entertainment experience of TV users.
MediaTek's new 4K smart TV chip mt9638 not only has strong performance, but also supports a number of leading technologies, including:
-Mt9638 is highly integrated with multi-core CPU, arm mali-g52 GPU and independent AI processor MediaTek APU, which can provide strong performance and make the TV system run smoothly without jamming.
-It supports AI image quality enhancement technology (ai-pq), intelligently identifies the content scene, optimizes the color saturation, brightness, sharpness, dynamic compensation and noise reduction of each frame, and improves the overall image quality.
