MediaTek Introduces Wireless Solutions For Home Entertainment

The pace at which wireless technology is catching up, we presume, very soon the umbilical chord might become redundant. Ensuring the tidal wave intensifies is a leading fabless semiconductor company for wireless communications and digital multimedia solutions, MediaTek Inc. The Taiwan based company showcased its innovative connectivity and home entertainment solutions for the first time in India. MediaTek is showcasing a bouquet of wireless ADSL routers, 3G dongles, M2M solutions, IPTV products as well as its futuristic Miracast dongle powered by MediaTek at the India Telecom 2013 organized by the Department of Telecom, Government of India and FICCI, New Delhi.

Dr Finbarr Moynihan, General Manager – International Sales & Marketing, MediaTek Inc, says, “India is a very important market for MediaTek. In the past, we have focused and successfully delivered solutions for the country’s ever-growing mobile handset segment, and now we look forward to bring to the audience innovative chip integration system solutions for wireless home networking, digital home solutions & broadband access solutions.”

MediaTek is also the world’s second largest provider of smart-TV chips globally. For the first time, the Indian audiences will also be able to see a live demonstration of the much-awaited Miracast dongle for TVs (Futuristic Miracast dongle likely to be available to Indian consumers by early 2014).

The Miracast dongle, powered by MediaTek’s MT8633 platform, supports features such as Airplay and DLNA, which enable users to seamlessly watch content from tablets and other mobile devices on their large TV screens with or without an internet access point.

So far, the Indian consumers have access to dongles which allow them to only watch online videos, whose quality is subject to the internet speed. The Miracast™ dongle will change the way consumers connect mobile devices to TV by creating a seamless experience, not just for audio and video but also for games and other multimedia content.

For the home entertainment and consumer electronics segment, MediaTek is displaying its high-quality IPTV set-top box from UTStarcom, one of India’s leading players in IPTV and a MediaTek partner. MediaTek was the first company to launch 120Hz & connect/3D TV experience.
