Broadcom Adds 10-Bit HEVC to Widely Deployed Mid-Range Cable, IP Set-Top Box Devices

Industry's Largest Portfolio of HEVC Devices Spans Entry-Level HD Zappers to Multi-Room DVR Set-Top Boxes

AMSTERDAM, Sept. 11, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  IBC2015

Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today introduced the next generation of its widely deployed mid-range cable and IPTV set-top box (STB) system-on-a-chip (SoC) devices. The upgraded chips now integrate the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) to provide up to a 50 percent reduction in bandwidth for similar video quality, allowing operators to leverage huge bandwidth cost savings as they migrate to cloud based all-IP video delivery.  For more news, visit Broadcom's Newsroom.

Broadcom's upgrades to its high-volume cable and IP STB silicon solutions are engineered as hardware drop-in upgrades to existing designs for fast and low-cost OEM and operator modernizations to existing high-volume production platforms.
