Multimedia SoCs (also referred as multimedia chipsets) primarily deal with audio, image and video processing.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
Silicon technology has come a long way since the first micro controllers were introduced in 1993. Micro controllers permitted integration of memory with processors allowing specialized embedded applications. As the technology shrank and matured, more and more peripherals were integrated into a micro controller giving rise to a System on a Chip (SoCs). These SoCs are popular today and stand at the center of any electronic device. The SoCs have even more importance in Consumer Electronic (CE) devices as a well-designed and featured SoC can not only help bring down the cost but also offer powerful features that help differentiate devices from one other.
Multimedia SoCs (also referred as multimedia chipsets) primarily deal with audio, image and video processing. These features are at the heart of a wide range of electronic devices such as TVs, DVD players, digital cameras, MP3 players, etc.
Each of these devices features one or more chipsets that processes multimedia in conjunction with a Central Processing Unit (CPU).
This report will focus on different semiconductor chipsets available for multimedia and will explore technologies and markets. The report will look at the total available market for multimedia chipsets. The market is also further segmented when applicable and the reader is provided with pertinent information. The report also provides readers with the market ecosystem and explains the trends shaping the future. Key players in each category are also discussed along with market share information. A forecast of total market in each category by dollar, volume and geography over the period of next five years is included. The report also includes an analysis of patents filed in this marketplace by various companies.
In addition to multimedia chipsets, the report also explores the role played by Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) in the multimedia market. DSPs provide flexibility over the hardware solutions provided by several chipsets but often lack the performance power. This report will explore tradeoffs in using DSPs rather than a multimedia chipset.
Emerging technologies that define the future of multimedia chipsets are also discussed. The report also includes an analysis of patents filed in this marketplace by various companies.

A research study aimed at analyzing this market is useful to anyone connected to this field. It provides students, executives, and those interested in technology with insight into the underlying technology, market forces, and trends that will help them understand the market dynamics.
Multimedia Chipset Market Segmentation
There are multiple ways of segmenting the multimedia chipset market. For example, one could separate the market based on the functionality provided (audio, video, graphics) or by the technology used (microprocessor only, microprocessor with hardware components, DSP, DSP with microprocessor etc). However, most of the chipsets are marketed towards a typical market such as DTV and hence we’ve segmented the multimedia SoC market based on the end product.
Report Scope and Organization
This report is divided into seven chapters. Each chapter describes details of the multimedia market for a segment (DTV, set-top box and IPTV, DVDs, handheld devices, audio devices, digital signal processors and imaging products).
Market data and information for this report were obtained through numerous channels. Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in preparing this study.
For example, industry association data was obtained, along with publicly available information from various companies. These include Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings by public companies, presentations in various conferences, and articles and reports published by company insiders.
Sales data for various multimedia device markets was used since chip sales are highly correlated to device sales. Interviews were conducted with company executives and other industry experts to obtain market insight. The companies selected for this purpose fell into several categories, including hardware suppliers, device manufacturers, and engineering services companies.
Other sources used include exhaustive Internet searches, blogs, and articles written by industry journalists. Editors and executives provided individual perspectives on the market. Industry journals and publications, white papers, and technical notes were also reviewed.
The information developed in this report is intended to be as reliable as possible at the time of publication and of a professional nature. This information does not constitute managerial, legal or accounting advice, nor should it serve as a corporate policy guide, laboratory manual or an endorsement of any product, as much of the information is of a speculative in nature.
