Realtek Announces Collaboration with Skyworth on 4K HDR TV at 2015 COMPUTEX Taipei


HSINCHU, Taiwan – June 02, 2015 – Realtek Semiconductor Corp. (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 2379.TW), one of the world’s leading network and multimedia IC providers, and Skyworth, a leading brand in the display industry, jointly announced the 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range) TV at 2015 COMPUTEX Taipei. The 4K HDR TV adopts an HDR-level 4K panel developed by Skyworth, and an HDR-EOTF (Electro-Optical Transfer Function) optimal TV controller SoC (RTD2997H) by Realtek.

“Realtek’s collaboration with Skyworth on the 4K HDR TV is a major milestone for the TV industry”, said Realtek’s Vice President and Spokesman, Yee-Wei Huang. “After the resolution boost to UHD, the next big shift for the TV market will be to HDR (High Dynamic Range). Viewers watching an HDR capable TV along with HDR video content will receive a far more immersive and amazing experience from the enhanced contrast providing a higher peak brightness and a deeper dark area with no sacrifice of detail”.

Skyworth’s HDR-level panel provides high resolution, high peak brightness, real-time optimal local backlight control, and wide color gamut with high color precision; Realtek’s new RTD2997H TV SoC controller processes HDR video content and offers exceptional detail in both bright (e.g. sunshine) and deep dark (e.g. black hair) scenes for ultimate visual enjoyment.

“We have had a long and rewarding cooperation with Realtek”, said Liu Tangzhi, President of Skyworth TV Group. “The 4K HDR TV extends the bit-depth from 8 to 10 per color channels; the number of colors increases from 16 million to more than 1 billion. These wonderful user experiences are what Realtek and Skyworth constantly strive for and are an embodiment of our long standing relationship”.
