ATI has announced the availability of the IMAGEON 2260, a multimedia processor that brings high quality video and imaging capabilities to mobile phones. This solution enables the convergence between communication handsets and digital still cameras and video player/recorders. IMAGEON 2260 is a highly integrated multimedia co-processor that offers handset manufacturers the opportunity for significant power, space and material cost reductions.

The IMAGEON 2260 offers fully self-contained graphics, video and imaging capabilities to perfectly complement communication baseband solutions. It enables high-quality (high-resolution, high-frame rate) video playback, video recording and two-way video conferencing. Handset manufacturers will benefit from IMAGEON 2260's support for high-resolution (megapixel) camera modules, putting camera phones on par with entry-level digital still cameras.

IMAGEON 2260 optimized architecture unloads heavy processing tasks from the communication baseband, which results in higher performance and significantly lower power consumption as opposed to pure software solutions, said Olivier Brecheteau, Sr Product Marketing Manager, Handheld Products Group, ATI Technologies Inc.

IMAGEON 2260 is fully compliant with industry-led 3GPP standards (3rd Generation Partnership Project) and offers the following features:

-Support for high-quality MMS (Multimedia Messaging Services);
-Still picture capture and processing (JPEG encode and decode) with support for high-resolution (megapixel) camera modules;
-Video recording, playback or streaming up to CIF, 30 frames-per-second (Video encode and decode), plus simultaneous encode and decode for video conferencing;
-Advanced 2D graphics acceleration;
-Integrated frame buffer and LCD controller for space, cost and power saving; and,
-Exceptional visual quality and display features.

ATI's IMAGEON 2260 media co-processor is currently sampling. Mass production shipments will start in Q2 2004. Follow the download tab above to find out further details on the IMAGEON 2260.

both ati and nvidia will suck at phones or palm devices. if they want a portable gaming they should just make a handheld or work together with sony supporting the psp or nintendo etc. phones are for phones, gaming is different. games in phones are the 3rd or 5th reasons people buy a phone. nokia ngage sucks. without nokia's last attempt to promote the ngage, it will already be dead by now.

by the way King Charles, when you said beat that you american scum, were you talking about another company, or were you talking about Canadian ATI.This is real good, it seams like there is more and more competition going into these cellphones.

"Looks like ATI are going full steam ahead. I wonder if NVIDIA will follow ATI and continue the card war within mobile phones."Nope. Looks like nVIDIA has been in the mobile phones, PDA and handheld devices long before ATi. Also Orange ([url removed] will use nVIDIA on their next SPV smartphones. Just for your information, SPVs are Microsoft Windows smartphones.nVIDIA is currently working with Mitubishi and Microsoft for the I-Mate.SPV Links:[url removed] Link:[url removed] Links:[url removed]

Mobile processors and phone processors are totally different. Telling some company dominates a mobile (currently laptops) market in a phone related forum is stupid. And I bet none of you fanboys have ever had an Nvidia or Ati (which hasn't even been released yet) based phones. You fanboys can argue about which card is the best for PCs and laptops, but you don't know shit about phones.

Medieval times the british empire did not exist.The japanese are mear puppets of the america, they can't even declare war on another nation if they were attacked!America own the world and we all know it!So stand up for freedom and never buy Nvidia again!

Why is it that every MGs forum always gets overrun by fanboys? Honestly, many of you people need to seriously grow up and get a social life (and at least half a brain). If you are not here to talk about phones, then LEAVE.And as for Nvidia dominating the market, I think thats a bit far fetched. Not that there is anything wrong with Nvidia. It will be interesting to see who wins the card war within phones.

"And as for Nvidia dominating the market, I think thats a bit far fetched."if we talk about phone, yes. nvidia is dominating the market compared to ati. they've been longer in the phone processor market than ati which only starts this year. and nvidia have partnered with dozens of companies like microsoft, mitsubishi, orange, siemens, dbtel, dell, hp, palm, philips, sharp, sony, etc. compared with ati which currently has only one partner in the phone market which is motorola.so yes, nvidia is dominating the phone market compared with ati.

Huh? What's GameCube got to do with all this? And to Anonymous at 15:7, Microsoft Windows phones are the most powerful phones to date! For a good example is the SPV by Orange. Even Bill Gates use an SPV (I hate Bill Gates but that shows how good the phones are). nVIDIA chips are the best in phones and other mobile devices like Palms combined with Microsoft technology. If your phone runs poorly check and see if it has the word Nokia on it. I'd ask you to check for an ATi logo on it but since the ATi phone hasn't been released yet, the best bet for lousy phones are Nokia.
