Neotion to Highlight New HD Module for DVB Sets
At NAB2007, Neotion
will discuss its launch of a module-based HD decoder that can be fitted into any DVB Common Interface slot.
The France-based company's technology will enable owners to take advantage of MPEG-4 AVC HD content on their iDTVs, regardless of whether the iDTV was originally designed for MPEG-2 or MPEG-4.
"This is truly a revolutionary step ahead for making HDTV available for millions of iDTV owners in Europe," said Laurent Jabiol, CEO of Neotion. "With this module, all existing HD-ready panels with built-in DTT tuner, that basically were intended for MPEG-2 broadcasts in standard definition, can be used to offer HD content through a standard TV aerial. Many DTT operators in Europe are right now preparing their technical systems in order to be able to offer HD MPEG-4 transmissions."
Neotion will be in booth SU15807.
