Broadcom Corporation’s BCM7405 set-top box system-on-a-chip (SoC) has completed Microsoft Mediaroom’s client integration. As a result, the single-chip solution can now be used in service providers’ second-generation set-top boxes to deliver TV services based on the Mediaroom IPTV and multimedia software platform.
The combined technology permits providers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to support a range of features such as whole-home DVR services, high performance user interfaces, and photo and music sharing.
In addition to supporting existing Mediaroom features, such as instant channel change, HD video-on-demand, DVR anywhere, and multi-view, the Broadcom BCM7405 SoC supports interactive TV applications based on the new Mediaroom Presentation Framework. This includes innovative applications using content and services from the Internet.
