TVB Tech Alert: LG’s Rugged Mobile DTV
DP570MHLAS VEGAS: LG Electronics will roll out a battery-operated mobile DTV at the Consumer Electronics Show this week, the company said. The device, created to work with the new U.S. mobile DTV standard, is said to be the first of its type.

The DP570MH mobile DTV features a clamshell design with a 7-inch, 480x234 resolution screen and dual earphone jacks. It also plays DVDs and CDs, displays still .jpg images and can play WMA music files via a USB2.co connection. LG says the battery lasts up to 2.5 hours in TV mode or 4.5 hours playing back a DVD. The device folds down to 9.5-by-6.5 inches and will become available later this year for a suggested retail price of $249.

“Even on a fast-moving train, a viewer should expect robust reception from favorite local channels--unlike some small digital TV sets currently on the market,” said Tim Alessi, director of product development for LG Electronics USA.

LG participated in the development of the U.S. DTV terrestrial and mobile technology standards. It launched mass production of a mobile DTV receiver chipset last June, and will launch a single chip with both tuning and decoding functions at CES. LG said it will release a smaller, more powerful receiver chip by March.
