March 6, 2009

At DVB World 2009, Microsoft and NXP, the semiconductor company founded by Philips, will demonstrate a prototype TV tuner for Windows Media Centre based on the new DVB-T2 digital terrestrial transmission system.

The prototype, which comprises all major functionality of NXP's upcoming DVB-T2 one chip solution and is designed for the Windows 7 release of the Microsoft operating system, paves the way for consumers to enjoy HD digital terrestrial TV services on a Windows PC. With a TV tuner based on NXP's technology, Windows Media Centre users will be able to watch, pause, and record live HD TV wherever there is a HD DVB-T2 service.
