Zenverge And MaxLinear Launch Highly Integrated Cable-to-IP Video Gateway For Multiscreen Service Distribution

Stocks in this article: MXL

MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE:MXL), a leading provider of integrated radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband communication applications, today announced that it has teamed up with Zenverge, Inc., a leading developer of advanced content networking ICs, to create a highly integrated four-channel cable-to-IP video gateway capable of streaming high-quality video content to tablet and smartphone devices. The next-generation gateway platform leverages Zenverge’s ZN200 quad stream content networking IC and MaxLinear’s MxL254 Full-Spectrum Capture™ (FSC™) front-end cable receiver to provide cable operators with a high-performance, cost-effective solution that expands their multiscreen service offering beyond the traditional set-top box.

“Consumer demand for high-quality multiscreen services continues to increase at an astonishing pace, making it imperative for cable operators to deliver a consistent viewing experience on every device,” said Shawn Saleem, Executive Vice President of Marketing & Strategic Planning, Zenverge. “Partnering with MaxLinear, we are able to provide cable operators with a powerful cable-to-IP video gateway that supports true HD viewing on a variety of IP-connected devices, including smartphones and tablets. The ZN200 is the perfect solution for gateway applications based on its ability to process multi-streams and deliver superior video to any viewing platform.”

The new gateway powered by the ZN200 advanced content networking IC features Zenverge’s industry-leading TransAll™ transcoding engine, a robust H.264 video compression tool that delivers up to 1080p HD quality video, compared with standard transcoding solutions that stream content at reduced resolutions, while it also minimizes DDR storage. Utilizing Zenverge TransFormat™, TransRate™ and TransScale™ functions, the gateway can seamlessly convert broadcast cable content into formats supported by tablets and smartphones, enabling cable subscribers to access high-quality television content anywhere, anytime. The ZN200-integrated gateway supports a wide range of adaptive bitrate formats, including Apple ® HLS streaming, and behaves as a Wi-Fi hotspot, further increasing a cable operator’s ability to stream video content to many different television viewers and devices with robust video quality of service.

“MaxLinear’s FSC technology captures the full 1GHz cable spectrum, providing industry leading channel tuning capacity for this gateway,” said Brian Sprague, MaxLinear’s Vice President and General Manager for Broadband and Consumer Products. “The MxL254 cable receiver is pure digital CMOS technology, which contributes to its low power consumption and small size, making it possible for this gateway to be as small and low power as it is and still deliver quality multiscreen video services.”
