Texas Instruments' OMAP(TM) 4 technology delivers market-leading applications and uses cases that will change the way consumers 'watch' and 'interact' with their mobile devices

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 15 — (PRNewswire) — This week at Mobile World Congress, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) shared its vision for the mobile future, unveiling new use cases that will dramatically change how consumers "watch" and "interact" with mobile devices. Leading the next wave of mobile use cases will be a set of applications classified as Human Device Interactions (HDI). TI's OMAP™ 4 platform is uniquely positioned to make leading features such as multiple displays, projection technology and gesturing capabilities – features critical to supporting HDI use cases – a reality.  In fact, TI expects the world's first "touchless gesture-recognition" and "3D-HD" (three-dimensional, high definition) mobile devices – enabled by TI's powerful OMAP 4 processor platform – to debut within the coming year. By simplifying common tasks and making the user interfaces more intuitive, these new capabilities will change how people capture and watch multimedia content, and how they interface with and control mobile devices.

"TI envisions a near-term mobile future that will be vastly different than today's mobile environment," said Remi El-Ouazzane, vice president and general manager of TI's OMAP Platform Business Unit. "Similar to how the touchscreen changed the way we interact with our devices, touchless gesturing and 3D-HD mobile capabilities will take experiences to the next level and radically change how we connect to our devices and the things around us. TI is excited to play a key role with our customers in this revolution."

OMAP technology revolutionizes how people "interact," "watch" and "see" with mobile devices:

Sampling now, TI's OMAP 4 platform is the fourth generation of a proven, powerful system-on-chip that includes an optimal balance of power efficiency and high performance. This sophisticated architecture is the ideal platform for enabling this "mobile future." The OMAP 4 platform provides the optimal mix of interfaces, processing power and the flexibility required to address the computational complexity of algorithms required to support vision analytics and other HDI applications. For example, the OMAP 4 platform is the only mobile applications processor that can deliver stereoscopic 720p at 30 frames per second (fps) per channel or enable true 3D image capture, both crucial elements for delivering comprehensive "3D-HD" experiences. OMAP 4 enables many HDI scenarios including:
