Marvell 88DE2710 delivers immersive viewing experience for Blu-ray and DVD content

Santa Clara, California (November 11, 2008) – urthering the integration of Marvell technology into leading consumer electronics devices, Marvell (NASDAQ: MRVL) today announced that the Marvell® 88DE2710 digital video format converter with Qdeo™ video processing (http://www.ClearlyQdeo.com) is one of the key components of the Pioneer Elite BDP-09FD. This second generation Blu-ray player from Pioneer offers a high-quality 1080p image, vivid true-to-life pictures, and a completely immersive home-theater experience.

At the core of the Marvell 88DE2710, Qdeo delivers rich, high-definition video quality through a suite of advanced QuietVideo™ technologies, providing quiet and natural video, free of noise and artifacts. Per-pixel noise and compression artifact reduction removes noise inherent in digital video. Per-pixel motion-adaptive 3D de-interlacing removes jaggies and eliminates feathering.

This Pioneer Elite Blu-ray disc player is the second generation player by Pioneer, and the first generation product to use the Marvell 88DE2710 with Qdeo processing. The Pioneer Elite BDP-09FD is Pioneer's first BD profile 2.0 player, with integrated Ethernet for full BD-Live playback capabilities.
