Broadcom Announces HD Cable Digital-Transport Adapter SoC

  • Broadcom Corporation
Orlando, FL - Broadcom Corporation, a provider of semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, announced its high definition (HD) cable digital-transport adapter (DTA) system-on-a-chip (SoC) including integrated full-band capture technology. This expansion to Broadcom’s DTA product line offers North American cable operators a competitive advantage when deploying HD-DTA advanced digital cable services and meets the evolving requirements of the FCC.

Broadcom’s BCM7576, the company’s fifth-generation DTA SoC, enables North American cable operators to provide enhanced basic digital HD services, reduce operational support costs and deliver enhanced user features to compete with IP and over-the-top (OTT) video service providers. It also enables enhanced experiences for consumers with fast channel change, advanced user interfaces and IP video streaming.

As more programming is delivered in high definition and approximately 20 million television sets in North America are still connected to only analog cable service, cable operators need to convert these customers to basic digital HD basic services and offer innovative services to compete with the evolving IP and OTT service providers. Broadcom’s BCM7576 devices with integrated Full-Band Capture digital tuner technology deliver up to four simultaneous programs by directly digitizing the entire 1GHz cable spectrum, replacing multiple tuners with a single Full-Band Capture digital tuner. An integrated IP Mini Server converts linear content to IP and streams it with DLNA over a home network while also providing HD video to a connected TV.
