Woo Paik, LG’s chief technology officer, has announced the firm’s new mobile TV vision at CES 2008. MPH – or Mobile Pedestrian Handheld – is due to revolutionise US mobile TV, Paik said, bringing live digital broadcasts to mobile phones, notebook computers, personal media players, GPS units, and in-car TV sets.
Developed with Zenith and Harris Corporation, LG’s MPH technology is set to enhance the mobile video picture to offer broadcast-quality video. “LG’s new MPH technology is TV to the power of three,” Paik said at LG’s keynote at CES 2008 this morning. “It allows high speed mobility for users, high-definition quality programming, and multicast variety for broadcasters.” MPH will support DVB-H technology, which has already been adopted as the European mobile TV standard.
