Designs for the Broadcast/Professional Audio Video markets support the highest levels of performance. They capture, process, convert, aggregate, store and transmit the wide range of Audio and Video standards. Many of the early Broadcast and Professional standards or products can quickly migrate to the other markets- Surveillance, Industrial and Consumer- as volume increases and prices come down so yesterdays Broadcast or Professional designs become tomorrow’s Surveillance, Industrial or Consumer standards.

Consumer Audio/Video designs in the Transmit/Receive category typically include the transmission of digital data within the home using Ethernet and wireless communications standards as well as decoders and converters (like MP3 or the multitude of image oriented codecs) needed for processing Audio/Video data prior to the actual use of the image or audio data.
Consumer Audio/Video designs in the Listen/View category are primarily the last stage of conversion of digital data to the analog signals needed to actually see or hear images and audio. It is important to support a wide range of industry standards so many time this category include multiple decode and conversion functions as well.
