SK Broadband Selects Broadcom's Ultra HD SoC Technology

Broadcom Corporation has announced that SK Broadband has selected the company's ultra high-definition, or HD, system-on-chip, or SoC, technology to power its new B UHD tv set-top box, or STB, and IPTV services. The company's advanced HEVC decoder technology allows operators such as SK Broadband to substantially reduce the bandwidth required for Ultra HD content transmission over its fiber, DSL or cable networks. SK Broadband's B UHD tv STB delivers striking 60 frame-per-second (fps) video with vivid 10-bit color to the newest generation of high contrast ratio 4K TVs. High quality graphics and picture-in-picture (PIP) capabilities allow consumers to further optimize the Ultra HD viewing and user experience. SK Broadband plans to begin offering a wide variety of UHD video-on-demand (VOD) services later this month including movies, animated films and documentaries.

SK Broadband Selects Broadcom's Ultra High-Definition System-On-Chip Technology to Power its New B UHD Tv Set-Top Box and IPTV Services

Broadcom Corporation announced that SK Broadband has selected Broadcom's Ultra high-definition (HD) system-on-chip (SoC) technology to power its new B UHD tv set-top box (STB) and IPTV services. Broadcom's advanced HEVC decoder technology allows operators such as SK Broadband to substantially reduce the bandwidth required for Ultra HD content transmission over its fiber, DSL or cable networks. Key features of the Broadcom(R) BCM7252 Ultra HD SoC are high-performance dual-core Brahma15 10000 DMIP CPU; 2180p60, quad 1080p60 HEVC decode, dual HD AVC encode; integrated high-performance connectivity peripherals, including USB 3.0, PCIe, Gigabit Ethernet; high performance DDR3/DDR4 system memory interface and enables more efficient operator content delivery for increased footprint, higher resolution or additional channels. Broadcom's full line of Ultra HD SoCs is now available. SK Broadband's Ultra HD set-top box and service will be available later September 2014.

Broadcom Corporation Unveils Hybrid Satellite and Terrestrial SoC Broadcast Devices for STBs

Broadcom Corporation has unveiled a family of eight new hybrid satellite and terrestrial system-on-a-chip, or SoC, broadcast devices for set-top boxes, or STBs. The new series is engineered with pin-to-pin compatibility, allowing a single set-top design to be leveraged across the entire family. The new series brings Broadcom's high efficiency video compression (HEVC) technology to terrestrial markets, enabling broadcasters to utilize spectrum more efficiently than with current MPEG-4 video compression standards. As a result, broadcasters gain options to deliver more competitive channel line-ups and improved content quality through the same or lower spectrum footprint. Broadcom's new family of devices also combines HEVC with the advanced modulation efficiencies of DVB-S2, DVB-T2, ISDB-T and ATSC, and high-performance IP connectivity with MoCA 2.0. This unprecedented level of integration provides set-top manufacturers with a compelling value proposition for broadcasters as they continue service upgrades.
