At this month’s Computex Taipei 2007 show, content protection specialist Discretix, along with electronic service guide (ESG) and player provider CyberLink, mobile TV platform provider CoreMedia and handheld device manufacturer GIGA-BYTE Communications (GBC), held a demonstration of one of the first mobile TV handsets to support the Smartcard Profile.

According to a press statement issued about the demonstration, the combined solution showcased “the ability to build a robust, secure, standards-based and fully integrated mobile TV system based on the Smartcard Profile.” The solution was demonstrated on GBC’s new GSmart t600, a multistandard mobile TV/PDA phone with built-in support for DVB-T, DVB-H and DMB. The device, which supports Quad-Band GSM, features a 2.6in touch-panel display.

The GSmart t600 integrates Discretix’s multischeme mobile TV security client, CyberLink’s mobile TV player and ESG, and CoreMedia’s mobile TV platform.
