Motorola will show a DVB-H portable TV at the CES 2008. The Motorola Mobile TV DH01 is a lightweight pocket sized personal media player that extends the consumer TV experience to anytime and anywhere for live TV, on-demand clips and programs saved on a DVR.
“Mobile TV is expected to grow significantly in 2008 and beyond and Motorola is in a unique position to mobilize the TV experience to deliver broadcast and personalized content wherever and whenever consumers want,” said Navin Mehta, vice president of Mobile TV and Applications Services for Motorola. “The Motorola Mobile TV DH01 is the ultimate personal media player – it allows consumers to enjoy their viewing experience at their convenience. In other words the entertainment experience is changing from ‘broadcast time’ to ‘my time’.”
Motorola’s Mobile TV DH01 is non-proprietary and supports the DVBH broadcasting standard in addition to open standards interfaces across devices, networks and application service platforms. The Mobile TV DH01 will be smaller than a paperback novel, but have a high quality 4.3 inch Wide Quarter Video Graphics Array Screen that supports up to 16 million colors. It also includes a five-minute memory buffer for pause during live TV viewing.
Portable DMB TV devices are as common as mp3 players in Korea or Japan. DVB-H compatible portable devices are still new, as there is almost no DVB-H based broadcasting infrastructure up and running anywhere.
