Advancing the State of the Art
Consumers today expect more and more functionality on their devices, and the television set is no exception. In addition to delivering traditional broadcast HD/SD TV and VOD services, TVs increasingly now have capabilities to support a wide variety of Internet-connected services, such as streaming of over-the top (OTT) video content, access to apps and Web browsing, games and music/photo sharing.
In addition, consumers are purchasing larger and larger TV sets (60” and up)—and Ultra HD (UHD or 4K), which offers four times as many pixels as Full HD (1080p) TV, is quickly becoming mainstream in the consumer TV marketplace. As a consequence of these trends, the TV set is evolving at a rapid pace, and the chipsets powering these latest generation TVs are incredibly powerful.
