Gionee Taps Telegent Systems to Power Mobile TV Handsets


SHANGHAI, May 13 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --


   Leading China domestic handset provider Gionee introduces free-to-air TV phones based on

Telegent's TLG1100 

 

    Telegent Systems, the company that makes television mobile with its high-performance single-

chip mobile TV solutions, and Shenzhen Gionee Communication Equipment Co., Ltd., a leading

provider of mobile phone solutions to China's domestic market, today announced availability of a

free-to-air TV handset from Gionee that leverages Telegent's mobile TV technology.  Gionee's TV

phone allows consumers to receive the same live, familiar television programming that is broadcast

over free-to-air channels while they are on the go. 


    "Mobile TV is a very attractive feature to consumers that is a key influencer in purchasing

decisions," said Wang Lei, assistant general manager of Gionee.  "We believe that the free-to-air

mobile TV feature, enabled by Telegent's technology, will be a significant factor in driving handset

sales in 2008." 


    Gionee's free-to-air mobile TV phone, the Gionee A10, features a 3.0 QVGA touchscreen and is

immediately available through Acorn International's TV shopping network, also online at

http://www.chinadrtv.com.  Gionee also plans to launch several more models of free-to-air TV

phones this year, including models with large screen sizes and a model targeting women users. 


    "The analog TV feature will be the major selling point for mobile phones in China this year," said

Kirby Deng, deputy general manager of SINO Market Research.  "We estimate that analog TV

phones will account for around 15% of handset sales in China in 2008." 


    The Gionee A10's mobile TV feature is powered by the TLG1100, a high-performance single-chip

mobile TV receiver from Telegent Systems.  The TLG1100 supports NTSC, PAL and worldwide FM

broadcast standards and is designed specifically for mobile environments, delivering a high quality 

picture that remains stable at high speeds of up to 430 km/h.  The chip also achieves ultra-low

power consumption, enabling multiple hours of continuous viewing time. 


    "We are pleased to partner with a leading brand such as Gionee," said Weijie Yun, president and

CEO of Telegent Systems.  "There is significant demand for the free-to-air mobile TV feature in

China.  Gionee's brand recognition combined with its ongoing investment in mass advertising

channels will help further accelerate market adoption."
