Notebooks to offer TV anywhere

Posted on Monday, May 22 2006 @ 03:20 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
ATI is planning to put DVB-H into laptops:
The company is in a good position to offer such a facility to notebook manufacturers since it launched a single chip, DVB-H compliant, mobile TV receiver back in February [2006]. Its WTV100-M chip integrates a dual-band RF tuner (UHF for Europe and L-Band for USA) with a DVB-T/DVB-H OFDM demodulator.

The company claims the chip interfaces directly with ATI's Imageon media processors – thereby providing the necessary audio and video decoders, for a complete DVB-H offering.
