On July 27, 2017, Parade announced two new chips PS8461 and PS8469 that expand options for video transport demultiplexing/multiplexing and signal conditioning for Dual-Mode DisplayPort™ 1.4 in personal computers, workstations, and other high-resolution video device applications.  The PS8461 is a multiplexing, or “mux”, chip that allows the selection between one of two dual mode DisplayPort inputs that are jitter-cleaned and repeated at the output.  The PS8469 is a demultiplexing, or “demux”, chip that allows a single Dual-Mode DisplayPort 1.4 input to be outputted either as a Dual-Mode DisplayPort 1.4 output or an HDMI™ 2.0b output, each being jitter-cleaned. Both devices support DisplayPort 1.4 HBR3 8.1Gbps and HDMI 2.0b 6Gbps data rates.

The financial figures detailed above for the second quarter of 2017 have been reviewed by independent accountants.
