Bristol, England -- Ocean Blue Software, the UK-based digital TV software specialist, and Sunplus Technology Company, the Asian silicon systems provider, have collaborated to develop a portable Freeview DVB-T platform with full interactive features. The new development will provide "red button" functions such as text services and access to alternative video streams in Freeview DVB-T TVs, for use in cars and trains, for example.

Ocean Blue worked with Sunplus to port its MHEG-5 software onto Sunplus' SPHE1002 series chipset, which has the low power consumption, ensuring good battery performance, essential in mobile devices, as well as static applications. The chipset, with both backend MPEG decode SPHE1002 and front-end Demodulator SPDC210/230, also features fast channel scan and good echo performance, also critical factors for mobile devices.

"We welcome the strategic alliance with Sunplus, to further increase the distribution of our products and expertise," commented Ken Helps CEO of Ocean Blue. "The portable platform is particularly exciting, offering new ways to enjoy digital TV."
