Montage LZ Debut at IBC2017

Amsterdam, Netherlands, Sep. 19, 2017 -- Montage LZ Technologies, a leading fabless semiconductor company focusing on the smart home entertainment market, made its debut at the 50th International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) held in Amsterdam, Netherlands on September 15-19, 2017. It was the first time Montage LZ had a floor booth at IBC and showcased its latest STB SoC products and technologies.

The most eye-catching demonstration in the Montage LZ booth was the live playback of 4K streams running on its latest UHD 4k decoder SoC (PN#M88CC8801), 4,096x2,160 ultra-high resolution and vivid natural color restoration have attracted many visitors. As the most important product launch for Montage LZ this year, M88CC8801 integrates quad-core ARM CPU and quad-core Mali GPU based on 28nm process. It offers the best in class cost-performance solution targeting UHD 4K IP/OTT and hybrid STB market with high-level integration and low power consumption, running Android or Linux.

Jointly shown with a partner, a customer made HDMI Dongle and a DVB T2 set-top box have adopted 4 chips from Montage LZ - tuner, demodulator, HD decoder SoC, and Wi-Fi network controller. The dongle and the box both have the capability to instantly push the live video playback from a small cell phone or PAD screen to a much bigger HDTV screen over a Wi-Fi network, the handheld device can then be used as a remote controller. Elegant form factor and great user experience have raised strong interests from professional operators and manufacturers for the intention of co-operation. In addition, static demo boxes/design kits from customers and our own references completely covered the product series of cable, terrestrial and satellite end-to-end solutions reflecting the powerful R&D capabilities of the company.

During the show, the agenda was tight from the beginning to the end and meetings were packed with broadcasting operators, set-top box manufacturers, software vendors, and CAS companies. Most partners are quite impressed by Montage LZ’s swift breakthrough in advanced security and UHD 4K technologies. Wish a greater presence next year!
