<p>Broadcom's mediaDSP technology is a modular and scalable multiprocessor platform that provides the framework for building customized and programmable multicore processors for the video and image processing domain. The mediaDSP platform exploits task-level parallelism and includes architectural elements that support a task-based programming model. Broadcom's BCM35421 processor leverages mediaDSP technology to realize a single-chip, full high definition (FHD) frame rate converter for today's 120 Hz LCD TV sets.</p>
