Based on Cavium’s high performance PureVu® video processor family, WiVu® is Cavium’s standards-based end-to-end solution for interactive, multi-room wireless display and home video distribution applications.
The key components of Cavium's WiVu® solution include:
WiVu® is based on widely deployed technologies, such as ITU H.264 video compression, IEEE 802.11 Wi-Fi transmission, HDCP 2.x content protection, and standard IP protocols for transport.
Cavium is also fully committed to the industry’s standardization efforts addressing Wi-Fi based wireless display applications, and expects to be fully compliant once such standards are ratified.
Leveraging Cavium’s PureVu® 2D and 3D video processor technology, WiVu® offers pristine 1080p HD video quality.
Cavium’s PureVu® video processors are designed to provide the highest video transmission quality for all types of content, including movies, text and graphics.
PureVu®’s patented Super Low Latency (SLL™) technology enables the lowest compression latency in the industry allowing WiVu® to address a wide range of fully interactive applications including remote desktop and gaming
5ms end-to-end latency over Ethernet
20 ms end-to-end latency over Wi-Fi
Support for back-channel control and command transmission over Wi-Fi is another key attribute of the WiVu® solution, providing support for:
IR remote signals
commands to be transmitted back to the source in a robust and real-time fashion to enable highly interactive applications.
WiVu® also incorporates key IP for video Quality of Service (QoS) called SMART (Secure Minimum-latency Adaptation and Retransmission Technology) for robust multi-room wireless video.
SMART incorporates an advanced rate adaptation and retransmission scheme that uses information from the Wi-Fi channel, as well as feedback from the receiver, to optimize the behavior of the transmitter for the varying conditions of the Wi-Fi channel.
With SMART, Cavium technology enables 1080p wireless video at the edge of the home.
