Cavium, Inc. recently made it known that its PureVu technology will be included in the Miracast demonstration conducted by the Wi-Fi Alliance at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). PureVu technology is to be included in the demonstration not only because it supports the mandatory features of Miracast certification, but also because it enables several optional features, namely support for premium content transmission using HDCP 2.x.
Furthermore, end-to-end optimizations through the use of the technology underlying Miracast certification on Android enables an enhanced user experience with superior interactivity and robust wireless video transmission.
Cavium's Wi-Fi certified Miracast adapter solution allows OEMs to quickly bring their own wireless display products into market as it is a complete market proven media adapter reference design. As the Miracast stack leverages the PureVu CNW6611L media SoC, it is capable of providing full HD 1080p performance, HDCP 2.x premium content protection and Cavium's industry-leading low latency video processing capabilities.
Additionally, the flexibility of Cavium's media architecture makes its Miracast adapter reference designs capable of supporting a wide range of wireless display and media sharing applications at retail prices.
“We are pleased to be a part of Wi-Fi Alliance’s Miracast exhibition at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show,” said Raj Singh, general manager of Cavium’s Digital Home and Office Division, in a statement.
“We are very excited to see the momentum and support the industry has shown for Miracast. Cavium is committed to promoting this certification program, while leveraging the unique low latency and high quality video processing capabilities of our PureVu SoCs to enable OEMs to bring differentiated products to the market.”
In November, Cavium began collaborating with Symmetricom to ensure that 3G and 4G/LTE networks maintain mission critical synchronization by combining the latter's SoftClock product with the former’s OCTEON Fusion base station-on-a-chip family of SoCs.
In September, Cavium was awarded the 2012 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Entrepreneurial Company of the Year.
