"Teracom's terrestrial digital broadcasts reach the majority of households in Sweden and Denmark," explained Håkan Axén, product manager at Teracom Group. "We are dedicated to offering our customers the highest quality viewing experience and are pleased to demonstrate UltraHD services powered by Broadcom and delivered by Boxer TV, which has more than 900,000 subscribers in Sweden and Denmark."
Broadcom chipsets support the advanced high efficiency video coding standard (HEVC), a standard that aims to reduce video bandwidth usage by 50%. The UltraHD demonstration with Teracom and Boxer TV is received by Broadcom's BCM3461 DVB-T/T2 front-end receiver with integrated tuner and decoded by Broadcom's BCM7252 multi-HD/UltraHD reference platform, which displays 2160p HEVC streams over DVB-T2.
"Our collaboration with partners such as Teracom and Boxer TV validates growing interest in the application of HEVC technology to terrestrial broadcasting in 2014 and beyond," said Aidan O'Rourke, Broadcom's senior director of set-top box marketing. "It also demonstrates how the DVB-T2 standard can be further leveraged to deliver the highest picture quality for off-air viewing audiences."
H.265 hardware decoding and 4K UHD are hot topics right now. The future of video would be 4K or even 8K. Operators want set top boxes with high-end features like 4K while cost-effective entry-level STB is needed. SDMC DV7810-T2 is Hybrid DVB T2 set top box with 4K UHD playback and HEVC hardware decoding.
