Broadcom Corporation, which on 10 September announced the first family of eight new hybrid satellite and terrestrial system-on-a-chip (SoC) broadcast devices for set-top boxes (STBs), today said it will power Ultra HD set-top box (STB) technology in collaboration with Vodafone Germany.

The full line of Broadcom is being demonstrated at the International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam.

Vodafone's 4K-enabled consumer set-top box, the first Ultra HD STB to be introduced in Germany, will deliver broadband subscribers Ultra HD content at 4X the resolution of traditional HD displays. Broadcom's high efficiency video coding (HEVC)-enabled BCM7252 device allows operators such as Vodafone to use bandwidth more efficiently, enabling uninterrupted delivery otherwise bandwidth-intensive 4K, 60 frame-per-second transmissions (4Kp60) at 50 percent of the bit rate previously required.

"Broadcom's pioneering Ultra HD technology will enable Ultra HD content for millions of potential Vodafone's fixed broadband subscribers," said Broadcom senior vice president of marketing, broadband & connectivity group Rich Nelson. "As a leading provider of silicon for Ultra HD technology, Broadcom's BCM7252 SoC allows Vodafone to bring crystal-clear Ultra HD definition content to consumer's home TV sets for the first time in Germany."
