"The HVC efforts have already begun. Based on the current timeline, one can expect the new standard to be available around the end of 2012/beginning of 2013. This may seem far away, but as many video infrastructure products have a 2 year design process, this is very relevant to today’s design efforts.
And so we are looking forward to a new and very exciting xVC episode, and it will be very interesting to see how the new standard evolves and whether it will fit today’s expectations. Thus, stay tuned!"
