The chips include multi-stream, multi-monitor daisy chain support, patented active video window detection, simple end-user accessible firmware updating, and ST’s Faroudja imaging technology. The DisplayPort 1.2 receiver/transmitter enables wider bandwidth data up to 21.6 Gbps and multi-stream transmission through a single cable for ‘daisy chain’ and ‘tile’ display monitor applications. The HDMI 1.4 receiver supports all mandatory 3D input formats defined by the HDMI 1.4 specifications. Monitor firmware upgrading is made easy for consumers with the patented EZ-FUN (Easy Firmware Upgrade Network) feature, accessed via a simplified On-Screen Display (OSD) menu.

The SoC family provides additional digital-video and audio connectivity, such as dual Digital Visual Interface (DVI), analog component, TTL and SPDIF/I2S inputs. Panel interface options are Quad Low-Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS) and Internal DisplayPort (iDP) or Embedded DisplayPort (eDP) formats. Other features for advanced image quality include Active-Video window detection, which automatically detects and optimizes video embedded within Internet multimedia content and applies the Faroudja Adaptive Contrast Control II (ACC II), Active Color Management-3D (ACM-3D) and Temporal Noise Reduction (TNR), independently from the panel’s main settings. Non-Uniformity luminance compensation enables excellent flat-field performance; six-axis independent color control corrects or customizes color; while PiP / PaP (Picture in Picture/Picture and Picture) allows users to watch two different video sources simultaneously. The STDP9320 and STDP9210 (WQXGA and WQHD/ 120Hz FHD) in 521-ball BGA packages are now sampling to early adapter customers. The STDP7320 (WUXGA / 60Hz FHD) will be available for sampling in a 345-ball BGA package in Q4 2011.
