MediaTek Pentonic 1000 - the latest SoC for flagship smart TVs with 4K 120Hz displaysMediaTek Pentonic 1000 is the latest system-on-chip by the brand designed specifically for flagship smart TVs with 4K 120Hz displays. It integrates Wi-Fi 6/6E support, MEMC for smoother video, a powerful AI processor, Dolby Vision IQ with Precision Detail, and 8-screen Intelligent View so users can watch or preview multiple streams of content at once. The chipset also supports the most advanced video codecs and global TV broadcast standards in a single platform.

Pentonic 1000 combines a powerful multi-core CPU, dual-core GPU, dedicated AI processing unit (APU), and video decoding engines into a single chip. The chipset provides resolution support up to 4K at 120Hz and is capable of VRR up to 4K at 144Hz for gaming applications. In addition to supporting super-fast frame rates for smoother gaming, it provides a lag-free experience with Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM).

MediaTek's exclusive Intelligent View technology enables consumers to watch different media sources and video conference with their friends at the same time, with incredible picture quality in every view thanks to MediaTek's suite of AI technologies. Intelligent View stands out from the competition by making it possible for users to showcase up to eight views in one display (4X more content compared to alternative solutions) and providing seamless video and graphic synchronization when users are moving, swapping, and resizing windows.

Joining Dolby's suite of Advanced Imaging technologies available through Dolby Vision IQ, Precision Detail unlocks more from Dolby Vision content by revealing incredible detail in both bright and dark areas. With added texture and depth, images take on a new dimension with astonishing crispness on 4K smart TVs. In addition to Precision Detail, MediaTek's Intelligent View technology paired with Dolby's latest advancements in imaging technology can process multiple Dolby Vision streams simultaneously. Consumers can now watch different media sources at the same time in Dolby Vision in multiple windows, all in stunning detail.

The Pentonic 1000's on-chip AI engine delivers industry-leading AI enhancements with higher performance and power efficiency compared to other multi-chip platforms. MediaTek's upgraded AI-Super Resolution (AI-SR) technology provides edge smoothing and detail reconstruction to make FHD look like 4K, while the company's AI-Picture Quality (AI-PQ) Scene Recognition and AI-PQ Object Recognition technologies improve picture quality for realistic depth perception that brings content to life.

Smart TVs powered by the Pentonic 1000 will be available in the market by Q1 2023.
