LAS VEGAS, NV, January 05, 2011 – Cavium Networks (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications and the digital home, today announced that it has partnered with Monster, the world's leading manufacturer of HDMI cables, AV accessories, and power conditioning products, to enable a broad range of wired and wireless home media streaming and content sharing devices using its WiVu™ technology and PureVu™ processor family. Cavium’s 2D and 3D PureVu processors are designed to enable highest video quality and performance for media streaming at home.  Equipped with Cavium’s SLL™ technology for real-time interactivity, as well as SMART video QoS for reliable multi-room operation, PureVu video processors are designed to enable consumers to view, share, and interact with their content from any home display on any network.

“Innovation has always been the driving force behind everything we do at Monster, and always with an aim toward creating unique products that bring our customers real lifestyle benefits,” said Noel Lee, Head Monster. “In today’s fast-paced, rapidly changing home entertainment arena, forming close alliances with other technology leaders is crucial to achieving our goals. Home media streaming and content sharing are among the most sought-after lifestyle enhancing features helping drive today’s home entertainment industry, and in Cavium, we have found a partner that provides us with unmatched technologies, as well as a world-class vendor who  shares our commitment to innovation and creating high-performance, high-quality products.”

Cavium’s WiVu is designed with flexibility and scalability in mind.  The network-agnostic nature of this technology allows it to seamlessly work with a variety of standards-based networking technologies, including Wi-Fi and powerline, for in-room or multi-room HD video delivery. PureVu’s low latency compression and robust multi-room transmission make it ideal for addressing the challenges associated with the constrained and varying channel capacity of typical home networks. The support for HDCP 2.0 (High Definition Content Protection) protocol also enables transmission of protected content to one or more displays within the home.
