ADB Introduces a 17'' MHP LCD TV With PC Connectivity
Advanced Digital Broadcast Brings this Autumn to the Retail Market an Ultra-Flat 17" LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) TV Compliant with the DVB-T MHP Standard and Including PC Connectivity
 
Geneva, Switzerland

Advanced Digital Broadcast (www.adbglobal.com), a leading vendor of digital TV set-top boxes and software solutions for interactive television, announced Wednesday the introduction of the i-CAN170T, its first Integrated Digital TV (IDTV) based on the DVB-T MHP open standard.

Mass production of ADB's i-CAN 170T is planned to start this October and its introduction will follow during the autumn in various retail outlets in Italy. It will also become available in other European countries which have adopted the MHP platform from the DVB.

"This all-in-one concept is intended especially for home-offices, bedrooms and kitchens, where there is a strong request from consumers for space saving while accommodating a stylish design," says Luis Ballestero, Marketing Director at ADB. "It allows the viewer to watch analogue and digital TV channels, access interactive broadcast services, and it can also be used as a standard PC monitor."

With the growing trend for flat panel screens and sole devices providing multiple services, ADB has responded by designing an LCD TV integrated with all the capabilities of a complete digital terrestrial MHP receiver, and which can be connected to a PC to display images in a 1280 X 1024 resolution through one of its digital video inputs. TV and PC signals can be displayed simultaneously in on-screen windows through its advanced PIP (picture-in-picture) feature.

Multifunctional with minimal space requirement, the i-CAN 170T is equipped with built-in loudspeakers and a complete range of interfaces, including outputs for Home Cinema, V.92 modem, Ethernet-to-ADSL port, and security facilities for providing access to personalised services. It integrates the leading DVB-MHP 1.0.x implementation from Osmosys (www.osmosys.tv) and its digital core is powered by the state-of-the-art STi5517 single chip processor from STMicroelectronics (www.st.com). The TV also includes a software loader for remote upgrades ensuring that it remains compatible with future broadcast demands.
