The new reseller partners will support the growing international demand for Hardent’s VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) IP solutions.
Hardent, a VESA® member and provider of IP solutions, has today announced new reseller agreements with Avant Technology, Progate Technology and RAM N.S. Technologies. With these newly-forged partnerships, Hardent will expand the international distribution of its VESA DSC encoder and decoder IP cores and deliver local sales support to customers in China, Israel, South Korea and Taiwan.
The VESA DSC 1.1 standard is increasingly being adopted by display and semiconductor manufacturers to support the development of higher resolution display products. Hardent’s new reseller network aims to support local markets with an accelerated solution for implementing the standard. By applying visually lossless compression between the application processor and the display sub-system, the standard allows manufacturers to use existing display interfaces, such as MIPI® DSI and VESA DisplayPort™, while decreasing data transmission bandwidth by up to 3X.
Hardent’s VESA DSC encoder and decoder IP cores offer a ready-made solution for adopting the VESA DSC 1.1 standard. “More and more companies are adopting our DSC IP cores as they look for a reliable and cost-effective solution to assist with developing UHD displays,” says Alain Legault, VP IP Products at Hardent. “Our reseller network reinforces our commitment to delivering our IP solutions internationally coupled with first-class local support.”
To mark the appointment of Hardent’s reseller network, a series of VESA DSC training sessions will be held in Hsinchu City, Shenzhen, Seoul and Yokohama in October. This one-day training course allows engineers to quickly understand the practical implications of designing a product compatible with the VESA DSC v1.1 standard. “We are thrilled to be part of the reseller team at Hardent and to kickstart our collaboration by bringing this unique training offering to our customers,” says Jill Chen, Sales Manager at Avant Technology.
