ALi Corporation Adopts Ocean Blue MHEG-5 Software

Bristol, England (PRWEB) November 23, 2006

UK-based Ocean Blue Software and ALi Corporation, based in Taipei, have completed a software engineering project to adapt the Ocean Blue Voyager MHEG-5 & DSMCC software to ALi M3101 and M3330 chipsets.

ALi M3101 chipset is the world’s leading DVB-T SOC with integrated COFDM demodulator, media processor, and audio/video DACs. This 128-pin packaged M3101 is ready for mass production and will be supplied with DVB-T software and Ocean Blue Voyager MHEG-5 & DSMCC v1.06 as a complete solution for set top box and integrated digital television manufacturers.

A number of TV and set top box manufacturers in Asia have already signed up for this ALi & Ocean Blue Software Digital TV turn key solution.

“This cross country development project, exchanging engineers and software technology, has been very successful, and I am proud of the achievements and determination of both engineering teams,” stated Ken Helps, CEO of Ocean Blue Software.

The UK analogue TV switch off is attracting the attention of consumer electronics and chipset vendors worldwide to create products to fulfil the expected UK demand for Freeview boxes and TVs.

The Digital UK group, funded by Government and broadcasters has already started a marketing campaign via TV advertising and press to help the UK public understand the implications and benefits of the TV switch over.
