At the heart of the connected lifestyle is digital entertainment: any content, anytime, on any screen. The types of content and experiences we demand—social networking, 3D movies, live TV—are becoming more varied. And the devices that deliver the content, such as Smart TVs, smartphones, tablets, game consoles, and set-top boxes, need to work together to deliver the functionality and services that define this new era of digital entertainment.
Marvell’s integrated hardware/software solutions are at the core of this digital entertainment revolution, delivering exceptional performance with minimal energy requirements. Consumers expect unfettered access to the services they love—Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, Picasa—in a lightning-fast, crystal-clear, and user-friendly package. Marvell’s comprehensive suite of processors and connectivity solutions enable “always-on” connectivity and the highest quality 3D and HD video, cloud-based media services, and streaming capabilities that consumers demand.
"With Marvell under the hood, we are able to deliver the highest-quality, on-demand gaming experience on groundbreaking devices and systems like Google TV." Steve Perlman, OnLive Founder and CEO
