Cirrus Surrounds Daewoo Home Theater Systems with Cinema Quality

12/12/2003 - As the holiday sales season approaches, worldwide electronics manufacturer Daewoo Electronics has announced it is incorporating the power of Cirrus Logic Inc. (Nasdaq: CRUS) technology to meet consumer demand for theater-quality functionality in its DR-C9A1D1 home cinema systems.

Daewoo has selected the Cirrus CS98100 DVD processor for its line of DVD/VCR Home Theater Combo Systems, which are expected to soon be available in the United Kingdom, France and Germany with future retail distribution plans in North America and Asia.

The Home Cinema entertainment systems by Daewoo offer users a theater experience from the comfort of home, integrating a wide choice of playable disc formats as well as VCR functionality. Driven by Cirrus' industry-leading audio and video technologies, the systems produce immersive surround-sound output through five speakers and a sub-woofer. Unlike other systems that rely on a separate DSP for audio, the CS98100 integrates all audio, video and receiver functions into a cost-effective single chip. The CS98100's progressive scan capabilities enable the systems' Digital Cinema and Video Mode progressive scan to eliminate scan lines on a video image and produce the cleanest, sharpest picture possible.

The Daewoo Home Cinema includes the Cirrus CS4228 high performance audio CODEC, which provides two analog-to-digital and six digital-to-analog Delta Sigma converters, along with volume controls, in a compact 28-pin SSOP device allowing for a significant decrease in system cost.

"Daewoo's selection of the CS98100 processor allows us to offer the theater-quality functionality and quality end-users expect, at an affordable and competitive price," said S K Min, Director, Daewoo Electronics R&D Center. "Cirrus' integrated single-chip technology gives us a market advantage that distinguishes our products in the marketplace."

"We are focused on helping companies like Daewoo enhance their presence in the fast-growing digital home entertainment market," said Raghunath Rao, director of Audio Video Systems Marketing, Cirrus Logic. "This is yet another example of our ability to help customers bring great audio and video products to market quickly and affordably."
