Zenverge Named AlwaysOn OnHollywood 100 Winner
Media Chip Maker Selected as Technology Innovator for Groundbreaking HD Transcoder Architecture
Zenverge was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team for its revolutionary new advances in digital HD convergence. In December, the semiconductor maker unveiled the Zenverge Entertainment Nexus, an innovative new chip architecture designed to support extremely high-speed transcoding, encoding and decoding of multiple streams of HD data.
"While today's consumers can take advantage of a growing array of connected digital media devices and services, from smart phones and Portable Media Players (PMPs) to HDTVs, Internet TV, and whole-home DVR, sharing HD content across those devices has become increasingly challenging," said
Zenverge and the other OnHollywood 100 winners will be recognized at OnHollywood,
"This year's OnHollywood 100 companies represent the future of entertainment and spotlight how technology and digital media continue to deeply impact the entertainment industry as we know it," said
The OnHollywood 100 winners were selected from hundreds of technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2009 list.
