January 7, 2014

Broadcom has announced two new systems-on-a-chip (SoC) for entry-level satellite set-top boxes (STBs). Broadcom’s BCM7364 and BCM7399 direct broadcast satellite chips are engineered with the advanced high-efficiency video codec (HEVC) standard to allow satellite operators to deliver more channels of HD content to a broader subscriber base on their existing network infrastructure.

“With the launch of today’s entry-level satellite chipsets, Broadcom is further proliferating HEVC across an entire range of STBs,” said Rich Nelson, Broadcom Senior Vice President of Marketing, Broadband Communications Group.  “By providing multiple deployment options, Broadcom supports customer requirements to quickly drive video compression technology into the market and efficiently deliver a high-quality user experience from entry-level client devices to high-end STB  gateways.”
