Cavium's Vega Hardware Development Kit (HDK) is a reference design for compact OTT media streaming, in-line PVR, and wireless display transmit/receive TV adapter, providing the ability to stream movies and other content from the Internet, time-shift(pause, rewind, etc.) live TV content, and wirelessly distribute 3D video throughout the home. These are only some of the applications that are possible with the Vega HDK. The reference design provides full support for media streaming and wireless display industry standards and protocols, such as Microsoft's Smooth Streaming, HLS, Intel's WiDi, Wi-Fi Alliance's MiracastTM, and Cavium's WiVu®, as well as support for a wide range of A/V formats and CODECs, networking and internal crypto capabilities.

Based on the innovative highly integrated CNW8302 media SoC from Cavium, the Vega HDK reference design oers support for full 1080p60 H.264 encode and multi-format decode with advanced audio processing. High quality, full-HD video and audio can be encoded or decoded and displayed via the integrated HDMI1.4 interface with 3D and MHL 2.0 support. The dedicated 2D and 3D graphics engine enables an engaging GUI experience. The USB and SD/eMMC interface, make for a low cost turnkey in-line PVR solution. Add to that the dual-band, dual-stream 802.11n or 11ac Wi-Fi and/or Ethernet, for a turnkey, production ready OTT solution.
