KT Unveils the world’s first AI-based Media Hub GiGA Genie with HiSilicon Chipset Inside

HiSilicon is empowering KT to lead the way of home AI era through seamless cooperation with other partners

London, UK & Shenzhen, China - 28th March 2017 – HiSilicon Technologies Co., Ltd, as a world leading fabless IC semiconductor company, today officially announced the collaboration with Korea Telecom (KT), Korea’s largest and leading telecom corporation. With the most advanced HiSilicon chipset Hi3798C V200 inside, KT unveils world’s first artificial intelligence (AI) smart home media hub.

KT GiGA Genie is the first UHD IP media hub with AI technology in the world which is capable of recognizing user’s voice command and providing services accordingly. Better than the audio-activated AI devices, KT GiGA Genie has upgraded with video-activated services allowing users to see what they command on TV screen.

HiSilicon concentrates on minimize the latency and improve voice recognition accuracy through strong capability of research and design with other partners. Untilising the leading technologies, KT’s GiGA Genie can achieve 95% voice recognition accuracy and communicate without time lag.

HiSilicon enable the media hub to play HDR live and VoD stream by integrating intelligent middleware. Even in the PIP mode, the video could be perfectly converted from HDR to SDR and clearly shown in the small window.

Hisilicon Hi3798CV200 as the main SoC, System on Chip, of the media hub enables KT to achieve high performance and innovative user experience based on successful cooperation with all other component device parts such as audio/video, wireless, power control/management and so on even middle-ware and application software partner. Hi3798CV200 provides powerful CPU processing capabilities with a quad-core ARM® Cortex® A53 64-bit CPU and a multi-core ARM® MaliTM-T720 GPU which meets differentiated service requirements. Hi3798C V200 supports Dolby vision/HDR 10 technologies and integrates ImprexTM2.0 PQ engine which provide an immersive best-in-class video quality experience.
