Smart TV Solutions

Smart TV, also referred to as Internet TV and Connected TV, offers a number of Internet connected services that a normal television doesn’t offer. In addition to normal television viewing, these televisions offer applications (such as Netflix, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, HbbTV, etc.), streaming of music and video, photo sharing, Web browsing, games and, perhaps most importantly, Internet Protocol Television (IPTV).

Our family of architecture-compatible products, reference designs, and software enable fast design of a Smart TV with a wide variety of feature options:

  • Streaming of on-line movies, TV shows, and videos (over-the-top or OTT content).
  • Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA®) support enables consumers to locate and enjoy content anywhere on their home AV network and effortlessly move or stream this content between DLNA-connected devices.
  • Z-Wave® RF remote control.
  • 3D graphics, enabling dynamic and customizable user interfaces by supporting the flipping, rotating, warping, and moving of images.
  • 3D video, enabling consumers to experience a new level of 3DTV viewing experience in the home.
  • Wireless display receiver, enabling consumers to deliver audio and video content from a compatible device to the HDTV, without cables.
  • Skype video calling through the HDTV.
  • 802.11n, HomePNA®, HomePlug®, or G.hn home AV networking.
