KT Skylife Deploys Ultra HD Set-top Boxes based on Broadcom

KT Skylife, a leading satellite broadcast provider in South Korea, has deployed the world's first Ultra HD set-top box built on Broadcom's single chip HEVC 4K/Ultra HD satellite chipset.

Broadcom's single-chip BCM7376 delivers fluid 60 frame-per-second (fps) video with vivid 10-bit color at 4X the resolution of conventional HD displays, allowing users to view life-like Ultra HD content on multiple devices. The combination of improved picture quality and color clarity is ideal for live-action viewing such as major sporting events and feature films.

"Broadcom's fully integrated Ultra HD solution combines dual Full-Band Capture front ends with eight demodulators and a 4K display in a single chip, providing greater ease of design and lower development cost," said Han Lee, CTO of KT Skylife. "As demand for Ultra HD content continues to grow at a rapid pace, we are thrilled to be the world's first to leverage Broadcom's single chip solution to deliver this unique and extraordinary viewing experience to our subscribers."
