Broadcom announces 40nm EZ-HD digital transport adapter solution
Broadcom Corporation today announced its latest EZ-HD digital transport adapter (DTA) system-on-a-chip (SoC), the 40nm EZ-HD DTA cable SoC. The Broadcom BCM7574 is being demonstrated at the CableLabs Winter Conference and is designed to help operators transition directly from analog to all-digital basic HD cable TV services. Legacy SCTE55 out-of-band accelerates the adoption for use on current head-end systems, 2x system performance increases CPU, graphics and video -- audio processing enables more advanced DTA user interfaces. Commercial Advertisement Level Mitigation (CALM) maintains constant volume across commercial, program and channel changes. Broadcom's DTA reference software stack and application accelerates design, qualifications and deployment.
