It is reported that Ruiyu RTD2983 SoC is compatible with 8K AV1, HEVC, VP9 codec, supporting all HDR formats, noise reduction, updates, and other common functions.
In terms of interface, RTD2983 supports PCIe and USB 3.0, and can transmit data through HDMI 2.1 48Gbps interface or pixel data through Vby1 cable.
Another point of RTD2983 SoC is that it has built-in storage, eliminates the annoyance of using external DRAM caching, and reduces the overall BOM cost.
However, due to the temporary scarcity of Ultra HD content, Ruiyu temporarily demonstrated on Computex 2019 by using the above coded still images.
Regrettably, we did not see the complex scene, but from the heat of the SoC, the calculation of RTD2983 obviously can not be underestimated.
As for the consumer applications of the chip, Ruiyu said that it had already demonstrated to interested customers and that when ready, all parties could design related devices according to their own needs.
In view of the long design cycle of consumer electronics products, we may have to wait a year or two before we can see all kinds of ultra-high definition set-top boxes based on RTD2893 SoC in the mass market.
