Broadcom intros hybrid headless video gateway SoC for convergence of IP and QAM video networks

USA: Broadcom Corp. announced a new single chip solution for cable headless gateways that immediately delivers the fastest Data over Cable Interface Standard (DOCSIS) data rates, whole-home connectivity and an all-IP video experience.

The BCM3385 headless gateway adds to Broadcom's advanced portfolio of single-chip hybrid video gateway solutions that allow operators to provide all-IP video delivery in the home without costly head-end upgrades and complements the recently announced BCM7145 headed gateway system-on-a-chip (SoC).

Broadcom's BCM3385 combines the functionality that is currently required by up to five separate integrated devices, and is engineered with a dual-core CPU that optimizes system security while retaining the CPU's high-performance resources. The BCM3385 SoC also integrates a quad transcoder to enable consumers to stream data services and IP video to a range of devices.

By also integrating H.265/HEVC video decoder technology, Broadcom's BCM3385 also transmits high quality video at one-fourth the bandwidth required by MPEG-2 HD, enabling the delivery of UltraHD content using similar bandwidth as today's MPEG-2 1080p HD
