SMART Modular Technologies Introduces Lily-TV Advanced TFT-LCD Monitor/TV Controller Board

Handling Analog RGB, DVI, Video, S-Video, and TV Signals, the Lily-TV Board Is Priced to Make the Switch to High-Performance LCDs a Simple and Affordable Option

FREMONT, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 12, 2005 -- SMART Modular Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of memory products and liquid-crystal display (LCD) solutions, today introduced its Lily-TV thin film transistors (TFT)-LCD Monitor/TV controller board for advanced video applications, including support for US National Television System Committee (NTSC) and European Phase Alternation Line (PAL) TV applications. The Lily-TV boards are well-suited to upgrade existing casino gaming, kiosk, ATM, and industrial control designs to LCDs.

Designed to deliver state-of-the-art picture quality, the Lily-TV board enables manufacturers to easily swap out full-sized conventional cathode ray tube (CRT) monitors and video, S-Video, TV, and audio systems with large-sized active-matrix TFT-LCDs, and have the new displays up and running almost immediately.

Using a basic input output system (BIOS) option to support TFT-LCDs up to SXGA resolution at 75Hz, the Lily-TV board is compatible with standard SVGA, XGA, and SXGA video electronics standards association (VESA) timings, enabling all video modes and the use of the full-display area. "Effectively, SMART's Lily-TV board acts as a comprehensive monitor and video, TV, S-Video, and audio interface," explained Kiwan Kim, Vice President of the Display Products Line for SMART. "By using the Lily-TV board, manufacturers can simply and cost-effectively replace their large, outdated monitors with the latest high-performance LCDs."

Additional key features include:

--  Support for multiple languages
--  Optional input combination, e.g., PC monitor only
--  Full CRT multi-sync monitor compatibility
--  "True-color" (16.7M) data processing and display driving
--  Single-control operated and transparent on-screen-display (OSD) user
    interface
--  Compatible with VESA DPMS power-saving modes
    
Handling analog RGB, digital video interface (DVI), video, S-Video, and TV signals, the Lily-TV boards are available with standard BIOS and cables to support industry-standard TFT-LCD models. They can also be customized to meet precise graphic requirements.

SMART's Lily-TV boards are VESA DDC 1/2B compliant and measure 100mm (L) x 120mm (W) x 7mm (H). Supplied by +12V DC single power, they operate across 0 to +50 degrees C.

Visit booth # 1713 (Paltronics, Inc.) at the G2E Global Gaming Expo, September 13 through 15th in Las Vegas, NV, to see the new Lily-TV board and other TFT-LCD solutions from SMART.
