Royal Philips Electronics, based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, says it is teaming up with BenQ, a DVD recorder engine manufacturer, to introduce a DVD-recorder monoboard solution targeted at consumer electronic OEMS in an attempt to drive down the costs for DVD video recorders.

Philips already offers a portfolio of Nexperia(TM) DVD-recorder reference designs and recently introduced its integrated PNX7200 MPEG-2 codec, which is ssaid to handle all of the necessary MPEG-2 encoding, decoding, and transcoding on a single-chip.

This latest collaboration pairs BenQ's DVD engines with Philips' MPEG solutions onto a single board to "advance the adoption of DVD video recorders into the high-volume market," according to a written statement from Philips.

The monoboard produced by BenQ combines the BenQ optical engine, based upon the Philips PNX7850 chipset, with the digital board, which includes the recently introduced Philips PNX7200 MPEG-2 codec.

"Together, BenQ and Philips share the same goal to drive the rapid adoption of DVD recorders into the mainstream market by supplying our customers with a complete DVD-recorder monoboard," said William Wang, vice president, BenQ Corp. "We are excited to join forces with Philips again since Philips' system solutions has been supporting BenQ in its efforts to lead the performance, recording speed, and price point battles in the audio/video and PC optical engine markets."

Jeroen Keunen, general manager, consumer and multimedia, Philips Semiconductors, says that Philips is committed to driving down system costs, and by partnering with BenQ, Philips is capitalizing on each company's strengths.

He says that together, the companies will be able "to provide an integrated and robust solution for the booming DVD recorder market, which is a key pillar of Philips' vision of the connected home."
