Dual HD Digital Video System-on-Chip Solution for Cable, Satellite and DTV

Currently Viewing:

The BCM7038 is an advanced dual-channel HD video/audio/graphics and personal video recording (PVR) chip that enables manufacturers to economically incorporate high-quality HDTV capability and PVR features into digital televisions, cable Set-top Boxes (STBs), satellite receivers and HD-DVD players.
Broadcom’s BCM7038 dual video/audio channels simultaneously support dual televisions, with independent picture-in-picture support on main and secondary. Advanced video and graphics features, such as on-chip 3D Y/C separation circuit multiframe deinterlacing, and quad video scalars with single-pass processing, significantly improve the HD picture quality by removing unwanted noise and artifacts from the television image.
