SUNNYVALE, California, December 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Telegent Systems, the company that makes television mobile, today announced that it has passed Additional Qualifications for Windows Media Center in Windows 7 for its PC TV receiver, the TLG2300. The TLG2300 is the industry's first single-chip DVB-T and NTSC/PAL/SECAM PC TV solution enabling the reception of free-to-air television on PCs, laptops and netbooks and other portable devices using existing broadcast and cable infrastructure. Telegent's successful completion of Microsoft's rigorous interoperability tests confirms maximum performance and trouble-free, reliable operation of the TLG2300 on the Windows 7 platform.
The Additional Qualifications for Windows Media Center in Windows 7 provide OEMs with assurance that Telegent's TLG2300 can be easily integrated into their existing hardware and systems, said Chris Williams, Director of Program Management, TV, Video and Music business group at Microsoft. We are pleased to partner with Telegent in enabling a core scenario for Windows Media Center.
As the world's first single-chip solution supporting both digital and worldwide analog TV standards, the TLG2300 combines the benefits of digital TV with the widespread availability of analog, enabling live TV reception regardless of digital deployment. The solution's low thermal profile and small size enables manufacturers for the first time to reliably embed hybrid free-to-air TV in new products such as all-in-one PCs and netbooks or in a slim, attractive dongle accessory while delivering the broadest broadcast TV coverage area to the consumer.
Microsoft's vision for Windows 7 - the convergence of computer, phone and TV screen - is well aligned with our corporate vision of delivering TV to every screen, said Don Stark, Telegent's vice president of engineering. Microsoft's certification program helps the ecosystem accelerate delivery of PC TV solutions to the consumer and improve the overall consumer experience. The Additional Qualifications reduce the testing and verification required by OEMs to incorporate the TLG2300 into their Windows 7-based PC products.
The TLG2300 is in production and shipping on Windows operating systems in all-in-one PCs, netbooks and dongles.
