The BG5CT integrates a 1.6 GHz 15K DMIPs Quad Core ARM CPU, 2.8 GPixel per second GPU, carrier-grade security, and state-of-the-art power management techniques, all designed to enable Pay TV operators and set-top-box manufacturers to cost-effectively deliver revenue generating entertainment and gaming services to their subscribers.
Synaptics’ Qdeo video processing technology with Advanced HDR enables broad rollout of 4K services by Pay TV operators.
The BG5CT’s Advanced HDR supports both Dolby Vision and Technicolor HDR, technologies that are already widely adopted by TV manufacturers, content creators, and service operators.
Pay TV operators want to deliver a consistent high-quality viewing experience regardless of content, and the BG5CT with Dolby Vision and Technicolor HDR technologies, not only delivers excellent 4K quality video, but also supports up-conversion of SDR content for best-in-class image quality.
“Our recent acquisition of Marvell’s multimedia solutions business reflects Synaptics’ firm commitment to lead in open platform adoption like Android TV for the Pay TV industry and advances our leadership in the smart home market,” says Synaptics’ Huibert Verhoeven, “Synaptics is uniquely positioned to innovate on entertainment platforms with our core human interface portfolio of voice, audio, biometrics, touch, and display and now an immersive visual experience.”
Security is critical for the Pay TV market, and Synaptics works closely with conditional access system (CAS) standards leaders including Verimatrix and Nagravision to ensure that BG5CT incorporates a robust security architecture that is compliant with Pay TV operator requirements worldwide.
Primary SDKs for BG5CT will include Android TV and RDK.
