PacketVideo (PV) is releasing a pocketable mobile broadcast receiver that turns WiFi-enabled phones and personal media players into mobile TVs. The portable receiver decodes a digital TV signal and repurposes it for use on the phone, sending it via a wireless signal to a playback device.
The receiver uses specific, patented protocols to ensure optimum rendering of the TV signal on the playback device, and provides secure access to premium channels. This allows mobile subscribers to upgrade to advanced mobile TV services without changing their current handset. The mobile broadcast receiver measures 6.4 cm wide by 1.8 cm high x 4 cm deep, and will be available in versions for all major mobile broadcast standards, including TDtv, DVB-H and MediaFLO as well as for WiMAX.
