SAMSUNG PICKS GENESIS CHIP FOR DUAL-INTERFACE LCD MONITORS.
Samsung produces 15-inch XGA LCD panels for many large brand-name monitor manufacturers (non-disclosure agreements prevent Genesis from publishing names). Samsung also has its own line of multimedia flat-panel displays, widely regarded for their wide viewing angles, crisp and vibrant images, plus fast and accurate auto adjustment. The dual-interface monitors rely on the Genesis gm5020 chip for all image processing and digital and analog connectivity.
Samsung Electronics has used Genesis video/graphic-processing chips in the past; publicly announced designs include the SyncMaster 500, 520, 530 and 531 LCD monitors.
The highly integrated gm5020 image processor offers numerous integration features -- including High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) and "Ultra-Reliable DVI" -- to provide a flexible, cost-effective solution for the rapidly growing market of LCD monitors with both analog and digital interfaces. Dual-interface monitors ensure monitor-to-PC compatibility by offering connection to legacy VGA-style graphics cards as well as cards supporting the emerging DVI standard.
