Samsung unveils DMB mobile television unit

Samsung Electronics has extended its presence in the emerging mobile TV market with the launch of a new receiver based on Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (DMB) technology.

With a 10-inch screen, Samsung claims the mobile TV receiver boasts the largest monitor available on the market. Key features include mobile high-quality video supporting MPEG-1/2/4, DivX, Xvid and WMA formats and a 80 x 480 resolution screen. The device also comes equipped with TV-recording capabilities.
Celebrating the product’s Middle East launch, Sam Heung Shin, senior vice president of Samsung’s Visual Display Division, described the product as a versatile device that would ultimately revolutionise how consumers come to watch television.

“Our main aim was to shift the concept of the TV from a fixed, family-orientated device to a more mobile, personal gadget,” he said. “We expect this product to impact the TV market in a similar fashion to the way the portable cassette player changed the music industry.”

The monitor can be connected to an external HDD to view content downloaded from the internet, while a remote control is included as standard.

The monitor’s twin speakers enable the broadcast of CD-quality audio. It also supports MP3, OGG, WMA, WAV and AC3 formats. Users can view images stored as JPEG, PNG and BMP files, while other specifications include a built-in flash player and e-book reader.
