Tata Elxsi Ltd and DiBcom have announced a partnership to help their customers in realising innovative mobile TV products with faster time to market.

Tata Elxsi has developed a full DVB-H stack, compliant with the DVB-CBMS specifications. The software is OS agnostic and independent of the base band processing sub-layer. It features an intuitive API layer, allowing easy and quick integration with various multimedia engines, decoders and applications, while a seamless abstraction layer provides for integration with different CA modules.

The software stack has been fully integrated with DiBcom's DiB7000 chipset, the world's first chip capable of de-modulating both digital video broadcasting - handheld (DVB-H) and digital video broadcasting – terrestrial (DVB-T) transmissions.

Coupled with a rich portfolio of IP such as IPTV and STB middleware, media player framework, audio/video codecs such as H.264 and MPEG4, and product design expertise, Tata Elxsi provides a one-stop solution for product companies wanting to develop innovative DVB-H based products and solutions based on DiBcom chipsets, getting them to market faster, without having to deal with multiple IP vendors.

At IBC 2006 - Amsterdam, Tata Elxsi featured a unique product reference solution, the HandyDVR – a portable mobile TV DVR based on DiBcom's DIB7000 digital TV chip. The HandyDVR is a small form factor device that can connect via USB to enable mobile TV reception on laptops. It provides unique features such as a PVR with ESG for scheduled recording even in a stand-alone mode and one channel recording and one channel play while connected to the laptop. This incorporates the DiBcom's DVB-H chipset and Tata Elxsi's scalable and portable DVBCBMS compliant stack, providing a very compact, low-power reference design. Featuring the Tata Elxsi DVB-H stack, it has been tested and its good performance for reception assessed at the premises of TDF, France and undergone extensive and successful field trials including in-car reception, in multiple cities across Europe including Berlin and Paris.
