Intel has announced details of a new media processor aimed at the next generation of set top boxes and media gateways.

According to the electronics giant, the Intel Atom CE5300 media processor combines performance, graphics, power management and user interface improvements to enable service providers to deploy comprehensive and immersive connected experiences. One such example is the new Amino Freedom Live media gateway, which is designed to seamlessly deliver content to tvs, smartphones and tablets around the home.

Codenamed Berryville, the processor is Intel's 4th generation SoC. It's also Intel's first 32nm part for this market segment to feature a dual Intel Atom core with support for hyperthreading and virtualisation, an advanced 3D/2D graphics engine, integrated power management and an H.264 B picture hardware encoder.
