If you weren’t already aware, the MEMC chip is used in higher-end televisions to simulate higher frame rates, by adding custom frames between actual ones. It stands for Motion Estimation, Motion Compensation. Further, MEMC is a smart algorithm that allows for frame insertion and interpolation layer. It can process a lower frame rate video up to a simulated 120 frames per second. The MEMC is handled by an independent chip on the display itself and will happen in real-time.
