The ARMADA 1500 contains Marvell's award-winning Qdeo® video processing for state-of-the-art HD and 3D video, including scaling, noise reduction, de-interlacing, low bit-rate Internet video enhancement and FRC and color/contrast enhancement.

At IBC, the ARMADA 1500 will be at the heart of numerous demonstrations, including Google TV set-top boxes; EchoStar's Android-powered IP, and hybrid DVB and IP connected set-top box solutions; Comigo's Android-based software platform, offering the most advanced personal and social interactive smart TV experience, and ZeroDesktop's cost effective enablement of virtual web desktops.

Marvell Avastar Sits at the Epicenter of Always-On Mobile Entertainment

Marvell's low-power, high performance Avastar® solutions are designed to integrate today's most cutting-edge wireless standards and technologies to enable the anytime, anywhere video experience end-users crave. By supporting WI-FI CERTIFIED Miracast and enabling carrier-grade distribution over Wi-Fi networks, Marvell's connectivity solutions deliver high-quality, low-latency video across a variety of mobile devices.

At IBC, Marvell will be demonstrating its single chip wireless combination radio portfolio and underscoring how Miracast – a standard that delivers audio and video content from one device to another without cables or an access point – allows consumers to transfer videos, mobile games and other mobile content from smartphones, tablets and other mobile computing devices directly to a big-screen TV. During the conference, Marvell also will showcase its carrier-grade 4X4 multiple input multiple output (MIMO) solution with beamforming and demonstrate how this advanced solution allows operators to reliably deliver simultaneous high-definition (HD) video streams to TVs and displays anywhere in the home, further optimizing the video and gaming experience for consumers. 

Smart, Fast, Powerful Connectivity Solutions Round Out Marvell's IBC Lineup

  • PowerLine Communications: Marvell's wired connectivity technologies are designed to meet surging consumer demand for high-speed and highly robust home networking, enabling complete unification of the wireline network. Now, with Marvell's G.hn wireline technologies, wired networks can distribute more content to more screens in more rooms in the home – and over any wired medium, including PowerLine, coax and phoneline/twisted pair – at up to 1 Gbps PHY rate. This performance enables OEMs and ODMs to select complete multi-technology design packages for creating systems that provide seamless and engaging experiences for consumers. Marvell is a recognized leader in the home networking industry, having won both the Best Electronic Design Award in 2011 and the Connected Home Award in 2012 for G.hn silicon. Marvell is deeply committed to interoperability among G.hn silicon vendors to foster market growth, which was demonstrated over coax and powerline in the world's first G.hn full live demo at CES in January. Having been subsequently invited to take part in the first Asian G.hn pre-certification event sponsored by HomeGrid Forum in Taiwan in May, Marvell paves the way for the industry's G.hn enabled deployments.

At the show, Marvell will demonstrate working G.hn modem systems based on Marvell's G.hn reference design, GE-DW360F.  Marvell's ITU-T compliant G.hn transceiver chipset has been successfully designed into several modem prototypes from among the company's leading Asian customers, supporting the growing demand for G.hn home networking.

  • Smart Energy: Marvell's Smart Energy and Smart LED Lighting Platforms are designed to provide highly cost-effective, fully-integrated, end-to-end silicon and software solutions that enable OEMs to develop feature-rich smart appliances and smart LED lighting solutions for high energy efficiency and even greater energy savings through network control. The Smart Energy Platform provides rich Wi-Fi connectivity, enabling smart appliances to seamlessly integrate into consumers' home networks and devices, such as smartphones and tablets, as well as the broader Internet and cloud-based services. The Smart LED Lighting Platform is built around innovative LED driver ICs, along with low-power ZigBee networking, to provide a complete, wirelessly networked lighting control solution. A Wi-Fi/ZigBee gateway connects the lighting control networks to the premises networks, allowing control via smart phones and tablets. Both platforms are complemented by the Marvell Kinoma® platform, allowing rich UIs and new applications.

At the show, Marvell will demonstrate a number of different types of Smart LED light bulbs that are based on Marvell LED driver and Smart control technology, as well as the Wi-Fi Thermostat that leverages Marvell's Smart Energy Platform.

  • Smart Printing: Marvell's leadership in printing and wireless extends the scope of connected living to include seamlessly printing a range of content from smart devices. At the show, Marvell will demonstrate its reference Android smart TV printing solution, which is designed to take care of all the backend tasks necessary to complete the printing request: establishing a wireless connection from the TV to the printer and then formatting and printing a high quality version of the selected content. The technology allows consumers to easily select and print content such as photos, web pages, documents, or video frames from their DTV solutions.

To see demonstrations and learn more, show attendees and media can experience the latest Google TV demonstration at Marvell's public stand 5.A12, located in Hall 5, or set up a meeting to view other Marvell demonstrations in Marvell's private stand BM3, located in Hall 1.

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts.
