Support for Broadcom CrystalHD Video Decoder has landed …

December 5th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

The Broadcom BCM70012 and BCM70015 Crystal HD advanced media processor are low cost, low power, highly integrated solution for high definition (HD) video playback applications. They are targeted for PC/x86 applications such as playback of streaming video content, Blu-ray Disc playback, file-based content, and broadcast and other TV sources. These are Mini-PCIe chips that suit really well in any Netbook, MacMini or other kind of SetTopBox and provide a complete CPU offloading through hardware video decoding of several resource-consuming  codecs such as:

  • H.264/AVC HP at L 4.1 1080p/1080i up to 40 Mbps.
  • SMPTE VC-1 AP at L 3 1080p/1080i up to 40 Mbps.
  • WMV9 (VC-1 SP and MP)
  • MPEG-2 MP @ ML and MP @ HL

Support for these chips now have been integrated within OpenBricks and have been made available through GStreamer and VLC additional decoders.
