LONDON – PC-TV software-plus-silicon company Mirics Semiconductor Ltd. has announced that it is working with ArcSoft to enable viewers in Latin America to watch broadcast high definition television (HDTV) on their PCs.
The combination of FlexiTV from Mirics (Fleet, England) with ArcSoft's TotalMedia 3.5 software will allow PC users to benefit from HD content broadcast free-to-air over the region’s digital terrestrial TV networks.
The ArcSoft/Mirics combination can support ISDB-T OneSeg – the standard for mobile DTV broadcasts – in areas or situations where it is not possible to receive the ISDB-T FullSeg HD signal. The initial target markets for FlexiTV are Brazil, Chile and Argentina. Other Latin American countries which have adopted the ISDB-T digital terrestrial TV broadcast standard are also supported.
