NEC and Telegent Systems announced that the companies will be
showing a Mobile TV over-the-air technology demonstration at 3GSM
in Barcelona, Spain.
NEC Electronics' application processor and Telegent Systems'
TV-on-a-Chip together enable simultaneous, high definition
multimedia capabilities that today's mobile power users require ?
all with low power consumption. The demonstration will show video
reception, high-performance video processing, and low power
consumption (maximizes battery life) on the cellular phone
platform, making Mobile TV a reality today.
Telegent Systems' solutions are based on the company's SureTrak
technology, which integrates all major Mobile TV receiver
functionalities, from antenna input to digital video output. The
SureTrak technology reduces the power consumption, and allows up to
4.5 hours of viewing time on cell phones. Through its Multipath and
Doppler compensation algorithm, SureTrak preserves the video
quality in a mobile environment, and has been proven to be robust
at speeds in excess of 430km per hour (265 miles per hour), while
maintaining audio fidelity.
Reference design kits based on NEC Electronics' application
processor are available now. NEC Electronics is also developing new
reference designs based on the company's Medity solution for 3G
handsets. Telegent Systems' TLG1100 is in production now.
