Pixelworks has always been committed to displaying the very highest video quality. We derive and market products from our innovative Video Display Processing technology. This has resulted in a strong IP portfolio that contains over 120 patents related to the visual display of digital image data. We believe every screen, no matter how big or small, deserves the highest picture quality. This belief has driven us to develop technology that spans the range from digital projection systems and large flat panel displays to small, low power mobile applications. We also develop innovative methods to applying our core technologies to reduce overall system power and help reduce the bandwidth burden that comes with the display of high-resolution video.
The relentless advancement of display technology and explosive growth of video consumption driven by digital delivery systems and mobile applications are increasing the necessity and demand for Video Display Processing technology. To meet this growing demand we deliver our technology as IP cores, semiconductors, software and custom ASIC solutions. This flexible approach allows our customers to deliver the highest video quality in a multitude of applications and form factors while also providing the ability for end product differentiation. Our primary target markets include tablets, smartphones, ultrabooks, large flat panel displays and digital projection systems.
We focus our product investments on developing video enhancement solutions for these markets, with particular attention to increasing performance, video quality, device functionality and saving power. Additionally, we look for ways to leverage our research and development investment into products that address other high-value markets where our innovative proprietary technology provides differentiation for us and our customers. We continually seek to expand our technology portfolio through internal development, co-development with business partners.
