Partners with IO Data to Bring HDTV to Japanese PC Users
London, February 7 , 2012: Mirics™, developer of FlexiTV™, the world’s first commercial software-based global TV receiver, announces availability of their FlexiStream™ client software for Apple iOS devices, bringing live European DVB-T broadcast TV to personal screens, worldwide.
FlexiTV™, the world’s first and only software based TV receiver, developed by Mirics™, has been introduced to Japan by IO Data – the country’s market leader for pc users.
The new product – the IO Data GV-TV 100 USB dongle – gives pc users in Japan HD TV reception, now the country has switched from analog to digital broadcasting.
The USB dongle uses Mirics’ FlexiTV as the underlying reception technology, bringing software demodulation already proven in Europe and South America, to Japan. IO Data is the market leader in Japan for PC TV accessories with 42% market share, so consumers – particularly those in the Akihabara area, who want to be ahead of the pack – will buy this tried and trusted brand above all others.
The product supports ISDB-T Full-seg (for HD TV), One-seg (mobile reception at QVGA resolution), One-seg dubbing to iPad, iPod touch, iPhone and Android mobile. The GV-TV100 is marketed with the user interface software brand of “Tele-king” and utilizes a custom television GUI developed by IOD and their software partner.
The GV-TV100 also supports the new SIM-sized form factor BCAS smart card, used instead of the credit-card sized BCAS card used in set-top boxes. With such a smart card, available free to Japanese citizens, the IO Data GV-TV100 is effectively a set-top box packed into a USB key.
