Though mass adoption isn't expected until 2015, Broadcom (BRCM) is betting big on 4K (UltraHD) video, co-founder/CTO Henry Samueli drives home in a VentureBeat interview. Among the chipmaker's CES launches was a decoder chip for home gateways that cuts the bitrate needed to deliver 4K video in half. Broadcom will also benefit from 4K adoption to the extent it boosts demand for 802.11ac (5G) Wi-Fi hardware - the company is an early leader in the 5G Wi-Fi space.
