"Russia is undergoing a massive television restructuring, and we expect pay TV
to continue its high growth and exceed 90 percent household penetration by
2018. Russia's digital cable subscribers have been growing rapidly, reaching
nearly 45 percent of total subscribers. Satellite subscriptions have been
growing at 18.5 percent annually since 2008, with increasing interest in HD
services," said Sam Rosen, Practice Director at ABI Research. "Today's Russian
television consumption is evolving from analog to digital, with an upcoming
transition from standard definition (SD) to high definition (HD), driven in
part by the government's investment in digital TV broadcasting. Russian
audiences increasingly value the convenience and comfort of more sophisticated
broadcast services, and are ready to pay for these new technologies."

Russia has adopted the DVB-T2 standard for terrestrial broadcast and set 2015
as the national analog shut-off deadline.* In the surrounding area, Ukraine
and Kazakhstan have also adopted this standard. At CSTB, Broadcom is launching
the industry's first fully integrated single chip DVB-T2 receiver
system-on-a-chip (SoC) solution (BCM7563), providing a cost-effective
transition from analog directly to digital TV programming and an easy
migration towards future IP-delivered interactive content and services.

"Broadcom's broad portfolio of set-top box and receiver technology enables
device manufacturers to address the significant growth in multiple TV segments
–cable, satellite, IP and terrestrial," said Dan Marotta, Broadcom Executive
Vice President and General Manager, Broadband Communications Group. "With
Broadcom's common architecture and hardware compatibility, platform design
investment can be easily leveraged to address multiple segments for lower
costs, less complexity and faster time-to-market."

Broadcom will also demonstrate the BCM7445 Ultra HD TV Video Decoder SoC that
supports the latest generation of video compression technology called HEVC
(High Efficiency Video Coding), based on the H.265 standard. This compression
technology offers operators and broadcasters significant bandwidth savings
over current standards. Additionally, Broadcom will demonstrate the BCM7241
IPTV STB SoC with the BCM43526 5G WiFi solution, based on the latest
IEEE802.11ac standard. This enables operators to provide reliable whole-home,
carrier-grade video distribution and coverage for multi-room DVR, browsing,
gaming, over-the-top (OTT) and other services.
