ZENITH DEBUTS VCR/DVD RECORDER WITH DIMENSION MEDIA PROCESSOR.

A provider of multimedia processing for the Digital Home, LSI Logic Corporation's (NYSE:LSI) DiMeNsion 8600 (DMN-8600) DVD recorder processor has been shipped in LG Electronics' line of Zenith brand combination VCR/DVD recorder products in the United States, including the Zenith XBR413. A worldwide leader in consumer electronics, Korea-based LG Electronics selected the DMN-8600 for its ability to provide the highest-quality digital video and distinctive features in a cost-effective, single-chip design.

"Consumers can now enjoy vivid DVD entertainment with the flexibility of either VHS or DVD recording," said DJ Choi, vice president of LG Electronics. "Through its high level of system integration, the DMN-8600 provided us with the ability to develop a device that allows consumers to retain their investment in VCR technology and begin to store and view content in the digital domain."

Unlike other VCR/DVD combination products on the market, the Zenith XBR413 de-interlaces video content from either the VCR or the DVD and displays it in progressive scan 480P format. Enabled by the DMN-8600, this feature not only provides a unified audio/video connection, but also generates superior image quality -- even for VCR-recorded content. The Zenith XBR413 includes one-touch dubbing from VHS tape to DVD disc for simplified VHS-DVD conversion. It also includes LSI Logic's Direct Digital Dub technology, which makes it easy to transfer personal digital content from a digital camcorder to a DVD over FireWire, with a single remote.

Based on the LSI Logic DoMiNo architecture, the DMN-8600 is a highly integrated DVD recorder system processor with a second-generation DV codec. Additional advantages of the DMN-8600 include the LSI Logic DoMiNoFX proprietary pre- and post-processing technologies, TrueView Pro and TrueScan Pro. These motion compensation-based technologies provide advanced progressive scan output and impressive noise reduction on analog inputs.

"We're pleased to have been selected by LG Electronics as the basis for their new line of combination VCR/DVD recorders; we expect these products will be a hit with consumers," said Umesh Padval, senior vice president and general manager of LSI Logic's Broadband Entertainment Division. "We look forward to continuing to work together in bringing the latest DVD technology to market quickly and affordably."

LSI Logic's Broadband Entertainment Division provides digital media processing and silicon solutions to worldwide consumer electronics manufacturers. With a complete line of cutting-edge products for DVD, DVR, EVD, video peripheral, digital and HDTV, set-top box, and professional video production/broadcasting devices, LSI Logic delivers entertainment into and throughout the Digital Home.
