ViXS Systems Inc. And Meld Technology Announce The MT300 White Space Personal Broadcasting Solution

ViXS ® XCode ® 4208 SoC delivers Powerful MPEG Encoding and Simultaneous Multimedia Functions

TORONTO, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - ViXS Systems Inc., a leading provider of smart network multimedia processors and MELD Technology, leading provider of Pico Broadcast Systems, sending your content to any DTV ever made today announced the release of the MT300 series of Pico Broadcasters.   MELD's patented Pico Broadcasters enable use of TV White Space spectrum for sending HD video and control signals over-the-air using unlicensed spectrum.

The XCode 4208 System on Chip (SoC), is the brains and video processing brawn for MELD's feature-rich family of industry leading products. The MELD transmitter uses a standard TV signal to efficiently transmit multiple HD video streams and control many TVs wirelessly at a dramatically reduced cost, compared to other media distribution technologies. These benefits make the solution ideal for intelligent signage applications used in airports, hotels and restaurants, convention centers, schools and hospitals. If you can plug a TV into an electric outlet, you have an instant content viewing platform that is limited only by the number of TVs you have in the transmit range of the MT300.

"The MT300 is an excellent compliment to a digital media player because it eliminates the complexity, clutter and restrictions of connecting cables," said Jordan DuVal, President/CEO of MELD.  "It also reduces the time and cost for deployment and content distribution. By shrinking the cost and complexity of the same proven technology used by professional broadcasters, businesses of all sizes can now Personally Broadcast their content directly to any DTV.  The fact that the Vixs Xcode 4208 SOC MIPs processor with embedded Linux runs our webserver application while also performing the broadcast quality video encoding has been a major benefit for MELD."

MELD's system uses TV White Space spectrum to reliably send large amounts of HD resolution video using the same type of UHF spectrum as broadcasters. This enables excellent coverage and non-line-of-site connectivity. It obtains the available UHF white space channels for streaming from the Spectrum Bridge spectrum management database. The MELD solution complies with ATSC standards and uses the same frequencies standard Digital TV can already receive.
