Updated:2011/9/13 10:35

Ubitus Inc., the leading cloud computing company, today announced its partnership with Broadcom, a global leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications.

Ubitus has extended its GameCloud® platform support to Broadcom's set-top box (STB) product family. The GameCloud® technology can seamlessly stream HD quality gaming with minimum bandwidth requirements, transforming a TV into a game console. The dynamic user interface (UI) allows users to play games with wired or wireless game controllers, smartphones or tablets. With additional control devices, it can also support multiplayer games.

Ubitus selected Broadcom for its advanced STB functionality including a high performance CPU for accelerated game control performance and fast response times, low latency decode architecture and innovative network offload engines that reduce game play latency and jitter and an advanced audio system to maintain A/V sync even under adverse network conditions.

IBC attendees can see live Ubitus cloud gaming applications running on Broadcom's BCM7420 and BCM7231 STB system-on-a-chip (SoC), delivering a TV-based HD gaming experience that matches today's top TV game consoles. Broadcom is located in Hall 2, Meeting Room G105 (by invitation only).

"The enablement of Ubitus GameCloud platform on a STB allows the capability to deliver any type of gaming experience on TV, including 3D intensive first-person shooting games, social games, and online games," said Wesley Kuo, CEO of Ubitus. "This is great news to the operators because now premium game content can be available in the living room via a set-top box. Home users can play games on TV sets, tablets, smartphones, and PCs through Ubitus cloud gaming service from the same service provider."
