A new Broadcom (BRCM) digital cable adapter SoC makes it easier for cable video to be delivered to "Boxee boxes, smart TVs and other types of IP-connected video devices," Light Reading observes. The BCM7576's integration of an IP mini server allows it to decrypt content so that it can be shuffled around home networks, and onto retail devices. The chip can also handle up to four video feeds using a single-tuner - current adapters often require multiple tuners. (PR)
