Frontier Silicon Demos Multi-standard Mobile TV and Radio

London (PRWEB) September 9, 2005

Frontier Silicon ‚Äď the leading fabless manufacturer of semiconductors for mobile digital television (MDTV) and DAB digital radio products ¬Ė will show its complete digital TV and radio reception capability for mobile applications using T-DMB, DVB-H and DAB technologies.

Among the demonstrations on its stand will be its first showing of DVB-H mobile TV, following the company’s announcement of its multi-standard, multi-band chip set development strategy for mobile TV and radio.

The company’s T-DMB mobile TV chipset, branded Kino, is already sampling to multiple customers planning production towards the year end. Frontier Silicon’s DVB-H technology expands its mobile TV product portfolio and the first public demonstration of this development will be showcased at IBC2005.

Anthony Sethill, CEO of Frontier Silicon, said, ¬ďThe next 12 months will be very significant for the emerging mobile TV market, with commercial launches across Korea, USA, Japan and Europe and multiple transmission standards being used regionally due to issues of regulation, spectrum availability and installed infrastructure. Frontier has invested in developing multi-band/multi-standard solutions ¬Ė this way our customers can support multi-region standards and reduce risks in trying to predict which standard will win out across which region. This approach will drive the roll-out of mobile broadcast TV and address the deployment uncertainties facing handset manufacturers.¬Ē

Other demonstrations to appear on Frontier Silicon’s stand are live Korean T-DMB compliant mobile TV reception using Frontier Silicon’s Kino chipset, and the recently announced DABplus capability enabling personal-video-recorder (PVR) like capabilities on digital radio broadcasts. The former was very successfully demonstrated at the IFA2005 fair in Berlin last week.
