We don’t know why, but in a game where numbers are king we bring you the world’s smallest HDTV. Measuring in at just 7-inches, Xceive’s “Breckenridge” reference design is currently on display at Computex in Taipei. Unfortunately, Xceive is only showing off their XC5000 silicon tuner in the press release, but we’ve got a sneaking suspicion that they’re using that
SanyoSeiko-Epson 7.1-inch, 1080p-capable LCD panel (pictured) first floated back in October. Xceive’s contribution to the 16:9 HDTV is the crazy small, 2.75 x 4.75-inch main board capable of receiving all 18 ATSC formats or NTSC signals via terrestrial or cable implementations. Unfortunately, you’ll have to sit about 6-inches away from the display for all those pixels to matter. Still, it is just a reference design. In other words, Xceive is looking for someone with the manufacturing skills to take this to market. Sammy, Sony, Philipps… any takers? Read-on to peep the XC5000 chip just for kicks.
