Better Experiences Begin with MediaTek at CES 2016

TAIWAN, Hsinchu – January 4, 2016 – It all starts with screens. How that information we view daily – on our TVs, mobile handsets, tablets or variety of other devices – is displayed.

To deliver on its promise of making displays the best they can be, MediaTek is introducing three new SoCs at CES 2016. This trio of SoC’s create better experiences for consumers across all platforms and deliver better connectivity to the world around them.

  1. Home Entertainment – MT8581 is the world’s first Ultra-HD 4K Blu-ray player SoC with High Dynamic Range; a revolutionary viewing experience similar to the leap from VHS to DVD
  2. Wearables – MT2523 is the world’s first SoC that combines a high-resolution mobile screen, dual-mode Bluetooth and GPS, with industry-leading power efficiency.
  3. IoT / Connected Home – MT7697 is an IoT bridge that will connect smart gadgets and appliances to tablets, smartphones and the cloud

Demos of the new SoC’s will be available at The Venetian, level three, Toscana 3610.“Our intention at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show is to showcase a group of SoC’s that will truly impact the way consumers use their devices", said MediaTek Chief Marketing Officer, Johan Lodenius. “The MT8581, MT2523 and MT7697 will each bring new features to home entertainment, wearables and IoT/connected home that were not possible before.”

MediaTek’s past, present, and future is in designing leading display technologies, regardless of consumer device. With a deep heritage in multimedia technology – and reputation as an industry leader in DVD, TV, audio, and phones -- the brand is taking that expertise and applying it to forward-looking formats like IoT, wearables and more.

MediaTek is also in the midst of immense growth and innovation as we head into 2016:

With support for industry standards, such as Apple Home Kit, MediaTek is expanding opportunities for developers to build connected home software. MediaTek MiraVision™ is behind leading display technology in everything from TVs to smartphones and powers the upscaling to 4K and the HDR display. “2015 was a banner year for the MediaTek brand that saw further expansion of our global footprint and we plan to build on that momentum in 2016,” said Lodenius.
