Plano, TX -- Microtune, Inc. announced that its multi-band Mobile MicroTuner(TM) chip was used in a live demonstration this week at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF), showcasing the latest technology innovations for 'TV on Mobile' devices. The featured demonstration highlighted Microtune's MT2260 miniature tuner implemented in both a notebook computer and personal data assistant (PDA). Both devices captured live terrestrial TV signals, based on the digital video broadcast-handheld (DVB-H) standard, that were transmitted by Crown Castle Mobile Media. This was the first demonstration of a DVB-H broadcast on a notebook PC.

Microtune's MT2260 tuner is the first TV tuner that supports both the U.S. (L-Band) and European (UHF) networks allocated for mobile broadcast TV services. It is a high-performance, ultra low-power tuner targeted for mobile platforms, including cell phones, notebooks, PDAs and other multimedia convergence devices. When integrated into these portable devices, the MT2260 tuner permits users to watch multi-channel broadcast TV with full-motion digital pictures and near CD-quality sound.

In the U.S., Crown Castle Mobile Media, a subsidiary of Crown Castle International, is the builder and operator of a dedicated nationwide digital network for broadcasting digital television content to mobile devices. The company expects to begin commercial deployment this year.
