Intel embeds Mirics in PC-with-TV mobo
May 31, 2011 // Peter Clarke
Mirics Ltd., a developer of a software modem technology for digital TV reception, has said that Intel Corp., is planning to deliver global broadcast TV reception through an Intel branded PC motherboard.
Mirics (Fleet, England) is demonstrating the Intel DH61AG desk-top motherboard with dual-tuner digital terrestrial TV mini-card at Computex 2011 in Taipei.
Intel's DH61AG Mini-ITX motherboard is designed for multimedia entertainment. Yuan High-Tech Development Co., Ltd., (Taipei, Taiwan) has created an MC002 mini-card that includes dual tuners and the FlexiTV software modem and digital platform that can be plugged into the motherboard, thus enabling digital terrestrial TV reception across all global standards.
"Consumers are looking to manage and view broadcast television content at any time and the addition of Mirics' FlexiTV global solution to our small and flexible DH61AG Mini-ITX motherboard is leading the charge on delivering integrated, rich multimedia capabilities at compelling cost points," said Michelle Johnston, general manager of Intel's channel platform division.
Demonstrations at Computex 2011 will show reception of live standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) content from terrestrial broadcast sources. Using standard playback software such as Windows Media Center, through the dual-tuner design, users can view and record multiple live TV stations simultaneously on PCs equipped with the motherboard and integrated mini-card.
Simon Atkinson, CEO, Mirics said: "Coupling Intel's multimedia offering with the Mirics' solution for global broadcast TV, tied to the motherboard, makes for a compelling package."
Pegatron Corp., (Taipei, Taiwan), formerly the motherboard manufacturing operation of Asustek, will take the DH61AG reference design integrated with Yuan's FlexiTV-enabled MC002 dual-tuner mini-card into volume production, Mirics said. These motherboards are sampling and will be in full production in the summer, Mirics added.
