CyberLink Corp. has demonstrated digital TV playback received via a mobile handheld device at the Intel Developer Forum in Taipei. CyberLink will also display its mobile solution in Beijing next week.
Based on the Digital Video Broadcasting to Handhelds standard (DVB-H), CyberLink DVB-H TV Solution incorporates technologies that support the playback of audio-video bitstream and Electronic Service Guide (ESG) data to a standards-based device. CyberLink's solution is also compliant with the Convergence of Broadcast and Mobile Services (DVB-CBMS) specifications for Internet Protocol Datacasting using DVB-H.
CyberLink DVB-H TV Solution includes functionality for:
*Tuning the DVB-H receiver
*Playing HE-AAC v2 audio and H.264 video received over a broadcast carrier

"For this IDF, CyberLink is delivering broadcast television content to a handheld device, using an Intel(R) XScale(R) processor so that MPEG-4 H.264 video content can be played without the need of a hardware decoder," said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. "What's more, through implementation of Intel(R) Wireless MMX(TM) technology, CyberLink is able to boost H.264 decoding performance by up to 70%."
