Mirics makes mobile TV run on NVIDIA GPUs

Posted on Saturday, October 03 2009 @ 10:20:14 CEST by

PCTV chip company Mirics has developed a new mobile TV receiver that uses NVIDIA CUDA enabled GPUs for real-time signal processing. This technology is aimed at providing low-cost mobile TV for netbooks, notebook sand desktop PCs.
The Mirics FlexiTV software-based receiver can now be implemented on entry-level PCs that have CUDA-enabled Nvidia GPUs. CUDA is a parallel-programming initiative that uses the parallelism of GPUs to run software other than graphics rendering.

FlexiTV offers a software-reconfigurable platform to receive free-to-air terrestrial TV regardless of regional variations. The Mirics approach off-loads certain algorithms to the Nvidia graphics chip.

"Mirics has significantly expanded the range of PC platforms that can support global TV reception by combining FlexiTV with the powerful Nvidia CUDA architecture," said Simon Atkinson, Mirics CEO, in a statement.
