Accele Intro’s Mobile DTV Overhead

share on:

At CES, Accele Electronics continues to pursue Mobile DTV (ATSC m/h) with an 11-inch widescreen monitor with built-in DVD/CD and Mobile DTV tuner.

Mobile DTV is expected to gain some momentum this year, after a slow start in 2010 for the live, free digital TV service to portable in-car devices. By the end of 2010, only about 70 TV stations were broadcasting in the service, leaving many markets without Mobile DTV service. But several radio station coalitions have been created to make the technology available in more markets over the next few years.

Accele’s Chris Way says, “We know the stations are coming, the coalitions are pushing; it’s really just a matter of time. With the demise of FLO TV, it’s going to see that much more demand.”

Accele’s new overhead video monitor with Mobile DTV includes a USB and SD slot and is expected to ship around January at approximately $799.
