Broadcom is big into many areas of the electronics industry and many of the consumer electronic products we use each day have Broadcom technology inside. Yesterday Broadcom announced a new 1080p capable media processor for mobile devices. Broadcom is now unveiling a new single-chip Blu-ray solution called the BCM7632.
3D technology is certainly maturing today and is growing at a very fast rate. We have 3D notebooks on the market now and 3D ready projectors and TVs ready to work when 3D broadcasts are offered. NXP has announced a new 3DTV coprocessor today that will help bring lower cost 3DTVs to market.
3DTV will be a huge market in the coming years. I mentioned a 50-inch Panasonic 3DTV set to hit the market next year last week that will be among the first 3DTVs to land in homes around the world. The Panasonic 3DTV certainly won’t be the last set to hit the living room though.
