Cavium Networks is offering the high-performance and highly integrated PureVu line of processors with Super Low Latency H.264 compression technology that enable standards-based wireless display solutions over 802.11 Wi-Fi at high-volume consumer price points.

The CNW56XX video processor family enables wireless high-definition video distribution over a broad range of consumer electronics and PC devices, enabling multi-room and multi-display viewing of protected content, wireless docking and extended displays, and highly interactive applications such as wireless gaming. Cavium's standards-based solutions are positioned to address the scalability and compatibility required to deliver any content to any display throughout the home.

CNW5602 is the most feature-rich member of Cavium's new video processor family. This SoC can support bi-directional video transfer functionality capable of H.264 compression up to 1920 x 1200 at 60fps, superior user control menus on a 2D graphics engine, and HDCP 2.0 content protection. CNW5602 targets a multitude of CE and PC products including HDMI transmit and receive adapters, BD-players, home video routers, and wireless gaming adapters.

In addition, by incorporating the CNW5602 into a TV panel, OEMs can differentiate their high-end products by converting the TV from being purely a consumer of content to a source transmitting to a multitude of smaller displays around the home. This is very attractive for TV OEMs as it brings mobility and brand loyalty with minimal cost adders. It's also completely in-line with their wireless technology integration plans since Cavium's wireless display solutions rely solely on standards-based Wi-Fi, requiring no additional radios or antenna technologies.

CNW5611 is a SoC designed to enable TV displays and PC monitors with Cavium's wireless display capability. It's equipped with a wide range of interfaces allowing for seamless integration into most TVs and monitors. A rapidly growing number of TV displays and PC monitors are integrating Wi-Fi modules for network connectivity. OEMs now have the option to upgrade the Wi-Fi module with the CNW5611 to enable wireless display functionality and Hollywood quality content protection with minimal impact on cost or foot-print. The high performance video engine at the heart of the CNW5611, along with Cavium's advanced error resiliency technology built into the architecture ensures excellent user experience through robust video transmission and extremely responsive user interactivity.

CNW5621's small foot-print and low power profile make it ideal for bringing PureVu's high performance (up to 1920 x 1200 resolution at 60fps), near-zero compression latency, and HDCP 2.0 content protection to portable computing and entertainment devices, such as notebook computers, netbooks and mobile Internet devices. CNW5621 has been designed for integration inside the PC on a DMC (Display Mini Card) and other mini card form factors, as well as accessory solutions with USB and HDMI dongles.
