At Last: A Hardware Decoder For MPEG-4

Supported Video Formats: MPEG-1, MPEG-2 And MPEG-4

Error message for video formats that are not supported.

Supplied player software for playing back MPEG video (DVD and video CD).

Although the decoder card is advertised as the "first board for playing MPEG-4," it is also suitable for playing MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 sequences. DVD films can also be played with relative ease from a corresponding DVD drive.

A distinction should be made regarding the different Divx codecs: only films using version 4.02 or higher of the Divx codec are supported by the Sigma Designs decoder. In our test field, the recently launched Divx 5.02 codec did not present any problems.

The video display window can be scaled variably.
