VIA Technologies introduced the VIA P710-HDP710-HD expansion HD module for the VIA EPIA-P710. The VIA P710-HDP710-HD is the first Pico-I/O module for stackable Pico-ITXe boards. The expansion HD module offers Hi-Def video playback and advanced graphics in an extremely low power, compact form factor. The VIA P710-HDP710-HD module is ideal for digital signage, arcade gaming, kiosk, and POI applications.
The VIA P710-HD module is based on the S3 Graphics 4300E embedded graphics processor and includes 256MB of dedicated GDDR 2 on-board memory, supporting separately configurable dual DVI, HDMI and S-Video ports at resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 with 2-channel LVDS and an analog VGA header also available. The S3 Graphics 4300E offers excellent power efficiency with a total graphics subsystem TDP of less than 8 watts. The S3 Graphics 4300E embedded graphics processor boasts a highly programmable video core, fully compatible with Blu-ray Disk technology with codec support including WMV9 HD, MPEG-2 HD, VC-1, H.264 and AVS, all within a ruthlessly low power envelope. The S3 Graphics 4300E is a fully DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 2.1 compliant part supporting dual DVI, HDMI, S-Video and LVDS transmitters across PCI Express 2.0.
