Broadcom Announces Next Generation Ultra HD Devices with MoCA 2.0 IP Interface

Set-top Box Chips with Multi-standard Support Enables Multiple 4K Content Options

ORLANDO, Fla., March 2, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  CableLabs Conference -- Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today announced two new Ultra High Definition (Ultra HD) system-on-chip (SoC) devices that integrate the advanced Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) 2.0 standard for cable home networking. Broadcom's new Ultra HD chips are the latest offerings in the company's portfolio of more than 40 MoCA-enabled SoCs and mark a milestone for shipping more than 100 million devices with this technology. Visit www.broadcom.com to learn more.

The BCM7448S and BCM7449S chips for connected home gateways and IP clients support multiple Ultra HD video compression standards for operators and manufacturers to cost-effectively deliver the widest variety of 4K content to home subscribers. With integrated MoCA 2.0, the BCM7448S and BCM7449S are hardware and software compatible for upgrade with Broadcom's widely deployed BCM74XX series Ultra HD chips.

"Since Broadcom first delivered MoCA integration in its set-top box portfolio in 2009, we have worked tirelessly to provide operators and manufacturers with the most advanced and cost-effective solutions featuring the latest connectivity technology," said John H. Gleiter, Broadcom Vice President of Marketing, Broadband & Connectivity Group. "Our latest generation of home gateway and IP client chips with integrated MoCA 2.0 and multi-standard video compression now allow carriers to further enhance their value and deploy the highest-quality Ultra HD services to subscribers." 

The BCM7448S and BCM7449S include support for two of the most advanced video compression standards, including the High Efficiency Video Codec (HEVC) standard and Google VP9 technology. Both standards reduce the delivered bitrate for comparable video quality by approximately 50 percent1. Advanced compression standards also provide video service providers with set-top boxes capable of decoding and displaying Ultra HD, whether from traditional carriers or Google's YouTube channel, to subscribers' primary TVs. The chips also deliver industry-leading display resolution speeds of 60 frames per second (4Kp60), which provides a smoother and more realistic on-screen experience.

Key Features of the BCM7448S and BCM7449S

  • Separate IP client and hybrid video gateway solutions
  • Robust and cost-efficient integrated MoCA 2.0 coax IP interface
  • Highly efficient Ultra HD HEVC and VP9 p60 decoding
  • Higher performance dual core ARMv7 32-Bit CPUs
  • Mobile applications compatible OpenGL ES 3.1 3D GPU
  • Latest advanced content security technology including watermarking and DCAS cardless security
  • Increased memory performance efficiency
