Harris platform for LG / Samsung ATSC
May 19, 2008
Harris Corporation will introduce the first full mobile digital TV transmission platform to meet the new Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) solution that was proposed by LG Electronics and Samsung. The Harris offering, which will be introduced in November 2008, will enable television broadcasters to quickly begin the transition to mobile digital television (DTV).
The proposed LG and Samsung mobile handheld solution is based upon elements of the Mobile-Pedestrian-Handheld (MPH) technology â€” developed by Harris, LG Electronics and Zenith â€” as well as Samsung’s Advanced Vestigial Sideband (A-VSB) system. The development clears the path for electronics manufacturers to begin designing mobile DTV devices, and for local DTV broadcasters to proceed with confidence to build out their new mobile DTV services.
