Broadcom's BCM7405 Set-Top Box Solution Completes Microsoft(R) Mediaroom(TM) Integration

Powers High-Performance Second Generation Mediaroom Set-Top Box Platform Enabling Richer TV Applications and Multi-Room Connected TV Services

AMSTERDAM, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- IBC 2009 -- Broadcom Corporation (Nasdaq: BRCM), a global leader in semiconductors for wired and wireless communications, today announced that its Broadcom(R) BCM7405 set-top box (STB) system-on-a-chip (SoC) solution has completed Microsoft(R) Mediaroom(TM) client integration. As a result, the high performance BCM7405 single-chip solution can now be used in service providers' second generation set-top boxes to deliver innovative television services based on the Mediaroom IPTV and multimedia software platform.

The BCM7405's completion of this Mediaroom client integration underscores the continued commitment by Microsoft and Broadcom to make connected TV services a reality for everyone. The combined technology permits service providers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to support a range of features such as whole-home digital video recorder (DVR) services, high performance user interfaces, and photo and music sharing. Microsoft and Broadcom are leveraging the capabilities of the BCM7405 SoC to further enhance the performance of the Mediaroom platform in support of next generation service provider requirements.

In addition to supporting existing Mediaroom features, such as instant channel change, high definition (HD) video-on-demand (VoD), 'DVR anywhere' and multi-view, the Broadcom BCM7405 SoC supports interactive TV applications based on the new Mediaroom Presentation Framework. This includes innovative applications that complement the TV experience using content and services from the Internet. As a result, this level of support enables worldwide service providers to deliver new, richer TV applications and multi-room connected entertainment environments in the home.

"Broadcom's completion of Mediaroom client integration represents a significant milestone for the expansion of the Microsoft Mediaroom ecosystem by providing our service provider customers and set-top box OEM partners additional choice in silicon," said Steve Koepp, senior manager, business development, TV, Video & Music Business, Microsoft Corp. "With Broadcom's high-performance chipset support, we are together driving the transition to a more connected and personal TV entertainment experience in the home."

"We are excited to have achieved this milestone demonstrating our ongoing and long-term commitment to support Microsoft Mediaroom and deliver innovative IPTV services," said Richard Nelson, Vice President of Marketing for Broadcom's Broadband Communications Group. "We look forward to our continued work with Microsoft in shaping the TV consumer entertainment experience enabling new and advanced services to consumers."
