Broadcom plots CES strategy: Super resolution upconversion, DLNA and more


Not stopping with Blu-ray hardware, Broadcom's got a even more display related tech to show off in Las Vegas next month. First up is its entry into the super resolution upconversion arena, promising to upscale standard definition or Internet streaming (a bit less relevant now that YouTube, Facebook and everyone else is going HD) to 1080p high definition resolutions. We'll be waiting to put it to the test against the best from Toshiba, Hitachi, and who ever else wants a piece. Also on deck is a DLNA connected home demo, showing what could happen when your cell, HDTV, set-top box and PC all talk to each other and shift media seamlessly between platforms (but probably won't.) Slightly less exciting is the promise of a 120Hz digital TV platform with integrated CableCARD and Internet support based on technology aquired from AMD earlier this year.
