AVC/MPEG High-Definition Decoder for Blu-ray HD DVDs

Currently Viewing:

The BCM7412 introduces the advantages of the H.264/AVC and VC-1 video compression algorithms to today's advanced consumer and broadcast applications.
The BCM7412 is a single-channel AVC/VC-1/MPEG-2 decoder chip capable of full high-definition real-time decoding. Broadcom's H.264 Compression Advantage™ architecture provides three times the compression power of MPEG-2. Systems incorporating the BCM7412 have superior image quality, improved system performance and larger storage capacity with the reduced bit rates of H.264 — also known as MPEG-4 Advanced Video Coding (AVC). The BCM7412 fully supports the MPEG-2 standard so compatibility with existing media can be maintained.


  • Multistandard video decoding support for H.264/AVC advanced profile, VC-1 advanced, simple and main profile, and MPEG-2MP@ML
  • Multistandard audio decoding including Dolby digital plus, DTS, MPEG2 AAC-LC Stereo and 5.1
  • Video post-processing with scaling, 3:2 pull-down, clipping and padding
