NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- Conexant Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CNXTD) today introduced a new family of broadcast audio/video (A/V) decoders targeted at “PCTV” applications, which allow consumers to watch television on personal computers. The CX2310X decoders enable the capture of analog and digital broadcast streams on personal computers through an integrated universal serial bus (USB) interface. Key features include support for consumer infrared (CIR) functionality, which allows consumers to operate multimedia PCs and TVs connected to cable or satellite set-top boxes (STBs) with a single remote control. The decoders are the world’s first USB broadcast A/V decoders to offer this level of functionality. The highly integrated devices can also be used in conjunction with Conexant’s demodulators to create complete PCTV system solutions.

“We have applied our expertise in audio/video capture and PC architectures to develop a next-generation product family that sets a new standard in terms of performance and integration,” said Rene Hartner, vice president of marketing for Conexant’s Imaging and PC Media business. “Our world-class broadcast decoders deliver the high-fidelity audio and superior video quality that consumers expect. They also allow manufacturers to develop products that provide consumers with the added convenience of infrared connectivity.”
