MediaTek has unveiled the high performance Smart TV SoC MT9602 with various features such as 4K HDR displays, real-time video optimization with improved picture and audio quality. It is supported by MediaTek AI-PQ (picture quality), AI-AQ (audio quality), along with HDMI 2.1a support, global HDR, and AV1 & AVS2 decoders. Motorola will be the first brand which will be launching new range of Smart TVs in Ultra HD and HD/Full HD resolutions powered by MediaTek MT9602 and Android 10, on 9th October in India. These TVs will be sold exclusively on Flipkart.
“MediaTek is the number one chip provider for smart TVs, globally. Our advanced chips and smart TV technologies are designed to deliver incredible experiences by making the smart TV the centre of intelligent homes. The launch of MediaTek MT9602 is a testimony of our commitment to ecosystem partners, to bring the latest technologies to the Indian market. I look forward to the upcoming Motorola TVs, powered by the MediaTek MT9602, which is set to redefine user experience,” said Mike Chang, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the Smart Home Business Group, MediaTek.
MediaTek’s AI-PQ (picture quality) & AI-AQ (audio quality) technologies work together to automatically improve picture and audio quality by real-time video optimization. As industry leaders in voice assistant devices (VADs), MediaTek’s AI voice technologies, and up to four directional microphones allow brands to integrate voice assistants directly into their smart TVs, enabling users to engage directly to control the TV, or other home IoT integration.
Supporting up to three HDMI 2.1a compliant ports, plus Dolby Atmos surround sound support, the MediaTek MT9602 chip ensures comprehensive global HDR standards, including HDR10+ and codec standards, including AV1 and AVS2 for streaming video. AV1 is a cutting edge, ultra-high-performance video codec technology that delivers 30% more compression efficiency over VP9. It improves the visual quality and reduces the volume of the file, enabling customers to enjoy better-quality content under a smoother view experience. Featuring an efficient Response Time Compensation Engine which helps reduce blurs, the MT9602 offers a smart TV primed for high-octane gaming and enjoying fast-paced action movies. It also enables enhanced connectivity by offering support for dual-band Wi-Fi.
