NEOTION : NEOTION reveals plans on revolutionary HD-module for Standard DVB television sets.


January 10th 2007

NEOTION, a French high-tech company specialized in the digital television, reveals plans to launch a module based HD decoder that can be fitted into any DVB Common Interface slot. By the use of advanced silicon technology and advanced software, NEOTION will offer all owners to take advantage of MPEG4 AVC HD content on their iDTV, regardless if the IDTV is originally intended for MPEG2 or MPEG4. Very simply, MPEG4 signals will be transcoded in real-time into MPEG2, and alternatively, a separate cable with HDMI connector will be connected to the IDTV's native HDMI input.

The NEOTION MPEG4 HD module will be introduced during the second semester 2007.

-"This is truly a revolutionary step ahead for making HDTV available for millions of iDTV owners in Europe." Says NEOTION's CEO and Co-founder Laurent Jabiol. -"With this module, all existing HD-ready panels with built-in DTT tuner, that basically were intended for MPEG-2 Broadcasts in Standard Definition, can be used to offer HD Content through a standard TVaerial" says Laurent Jabiol. "Many DTT operators in Europe are right now preparing their technical systems in order to be able to offer HD MPEG4 transmissions".

In Sweden, Boxer will be carrying on test and experimentations of HD transmissions with IDTV's together with NEOTION. Boxer TV-Access AB was started in 1999 and got ever since a tremendous success through the offering of the most popular Swedish channels in DTT. -"Boxer has been deeply involved in getting DTT popular, so that very many Swedes, today, have access to digital TV., This shows, once again, the advantages of an open technology that has been chosen for the DTT. With the help of NEOTION's product innovation, the introduction of HD-services will be even easier than we anticipated." said Peter Johnsson, Boxer's Technical Manager for TV-services.
