Dual-core micros are expanding their reach into the consumer world, helping in the transition to high-definition TV and digital movies. Silicon Imaging deployed Intel's Core2 Duo in its SI-2K high-definition video camera. A control system developed by MEN Micro Inc. lets Silicon Imaging trim its price by 40 percent over competitors while also permitting upgrades because of its modular architecture. The professional-grade camera, with a base price of $17,500, shoots raw footage directly to disk at either 1,920 x 1,080p high definition or 2,048 x 1,152 cinema resolutions.
