PacketVideo debuts mobile broadcast receiver

PacketVideo (PV) at last week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, debuted its PacketVideo mobile broadcast receiver, which users can insert into WiFi-enabled mobile phones and personal media players to enable mobile TV services.

The receiver decodes a digital TV signal and repurposes it for use on the phone, sending it via wireless signal, such as WiFi, to a playback device. The receiver uses specific, patented protocols to ensure optimum rendering of the TV signal on the playback device and provides secure access to premium channels, allowing mobile subscribers to upgrade to advanced mobile TV services without changing their current handset. The receiver includes a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

PacketVideo plans to make the receiver available in versions for most major mobile broadcast standards, including DVB-H, MediaFLO and TDtv as well as for WiMAX, later this year.
