The VIA CX700M system media processor, an all-in-one digital media IGP chipset, integrates premium graphics, audio, memory, storage, and HDTV support all in a single chip design. This unified design enables the creation of smaller form factor systems, reduced power consumption, and easier cooling, all of which opens the door for an expanded range of embedded solutions. This is all done in a single chip package exactly the same size as a North bridge, i.e. 37.5mm x 37.5mm, representing a saving of over 34% in board real estate, representing a major breakthrough for the embedded industry where ultra compactness is essential, and will have significant benefit for embedded boards such as PC/104 and VIA EPIA mainboards. In addition, VIA offers the VIA CX700M2 supporting Macrovision copy protection.
