Samsung Creates Multiband Mobile TV Chipset
Jun 28, 2007, 8:32 AM by (staff)
A new chipset from Samsung supports several different digital standards, including DVB-H/T, DAB-IP, ISDB-T, and terrestrial DMB. By incorporating all these bands into a single chip, users will be able to switch between different broadcasting services while using the same application. A decoder on the chip converts the analog signal to digital to watch and listen on the handset. The tuner supports UHF, VHF, and L-band. It will be released in Europe and Asia first, but will eventually be incorporated into handsets bound for the U.S.
I might be way off on that but that is my understanding of it.
Thought this was funny (in the full article)
"Between 60% and 85% of people who experienced video on a handset enjoyed it, according to Research and Markets. The biggest reason is boredom."
Well, that is kinda true...if you're...
