Youâ€™ve waited a long time for your team to make it to the Big Game and now itâ€™s your turn to host a Super Bowl party like no other. In the old days, this scene would entail your family and friends enacting an amateur version of a pre-game huddle in the living room around the one big screen TV in the house.
Nowadays you most likely have multiple screens under one roof. You might have a PC and monitor, a laptop, a tablet, a smart phone and at least a couple of TVs. In the past, if you wanted to watch every minute of the game, your options were limited to only one of these devices, the TV.
Multi-screen home entertainment is becoming a reality with the benefit of technologies and standards such as DLNA, Wi-Fi, MoCA,Â HomePlug and Transcoding, which enable broadcast content to be sized for wireless devices.
If youâ€™re like most people, watching Super Bowl ads is part of the experience, but for that rare person who wants to flip channels during game, Broadcom also offers FastRTV channel change technology that lets TV viewers scan through channels up to five times faster, offering near instant channel-change response from the remote.
With this in mind, broadcast operators are teaming up with connectivity experts like Broadcom to ensure that your guests are free to roam without missing a minute of the action.
From the kitchen, to the den, to the deckâ€”or maybe even the bathroomâ€”youâ€™re now able to stream broadcast content to tablets, laptops Â and smart phones for a true TV, Video and Internet Everywhere experience.
