Telegent Targets Mobile TV

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Telegent Systems, Inc., a leader in advanced RF and digital signal processing technologies for Mobile TV in cellular phones and other portable media devices, today announces the production shipment of its first generation TV receiver (TLG1100) and introduces an advanced, high performance TV-on-Chip solution (TLG1130). The shipment of the first generation solution will enable handset manufacturers and carriers to introduce new products with mobile TV before the holiday season.

Telegent Systems' first products, the TLG1100 and TLG1130, integrate all major Mobile TV receiver functionalities from antenna input to digital video output. Currently, TLG1100 supports NTSC and PAL, while TLG1130 supports DVB-H, DVB-T, NTSC and PAL. The hybrid TLG1130 solution enables the reception of both existing and new mobile broadcasts on any mobile device. This elevates the Mobile TV experience by giving consumers the ability to watch their favorite network programs, as well as supporting emerging made-for-mobile content.

"Telegent Systems represents a breakthrough opportunity for handset makers, carriers, and broadcasters," stated Reed Hundt, former chairman of the FCC and a member of the board of directors for Telegent Systems. "Finally, there is a technology that merges the ease of watching broadcast television with the convenience of carrying cell phones in our hands."
