Broadcom Corp. will use CES 2009 this week to showcase a variety of new technologies for digital video, wireless, and mobile communications devices aimed at advancing the concept of a fully connected digital home. The company will demonstrate a Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA)-enabled connected home. DLNA is a set of standard technologies that run on a variety of devices allowing consumers to access, stream, and enjoy digital content seamlessly throughout the home using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and coax connections.
“Our message at CES is clear: the time has come to combine the television with the Internet,” said Scott McGregor, Broadcom president and CEO. “Consumers increasingly expect to be connected to everything at any time, and our technology on display at CES showcases how Broadcom enables Internet connectivity for consumer electronics products that traditionally have been stand-alone devices. Device manufacturers want innovative technologies that allow them to push the boundaries of product design and deliver the most advanced features, and Broadcom is providing the technology that will usher in a new entertainment, information and connectivity experience for consumers.”
Among the technologies the company will highlight are Blu-ray Disc, mobile multimedia, Bluetooth, cable and satellite set-top boxes, and GPS. It will also show developments in advanced DSL communications, digital television, IPTV, Wi-Fi/WLAN, and voice-over-IP (VoIP). Demonstrations will take place in meeting room 35778, South Hall 4, in the Las Vegas Convention Center.
