[Broadcom announces its next-generation Crystal HD solution for small form factor PCs and netbooks offering quality playback of online streaming HD video.]

Irvine, CA -- Broadcom Corporation, a global leader in semiconductors for wired and wireless communications, today announced its next-generation Crystal HD solution that provides consumers with the most advanced, low cost, low power, high definition (HD) video playback available on a netbook. Providing access to personal offline video and quality online HD content, such as user-generated videos, streaming movies, and online television and HD news, from a low cost, low power netbook can present a technology challenge for manufacturers. The new Broadcom® BCM70015 single chip Crystal HD enhanced media accelerator solution breaks down these netbook cost and power barriers to provide an exceptional HD video experience.

Highlights/Key Facts:

* Broadcom Crystal HD technology gives netbook users a rich multimedia experience by providing cost-effective, quality playback of HD video.
