Telegent Systems today announced that it has achieved a key industry milestone with the shipment of its 100 millionth mobile TV receiver last month.

Handsets incorporating Telegent’s solutions, which enable reception of live, free-to-air broadcast TV in mobile devices, have been widely adopted by consumers in emerging markets around the world, including Southeast Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa and India.

“Free-to-air mobile TV is quite popular with emerging market consumers around the world, leading to continuing rapid growth in demand over the last year for analog mobile TV receivers,” said Ford Tamer, chief executive officer of Telegent Systems.

“Consumers value having daily access to live broadcast programs such as news, sports and other entertainment during their commute, breaks at work or while at home.”

Telegent’s customers include several global handset manufacturers such as Samsung, ZTE, Tianyu and more than one hundred design houses and original equipment manufacturers in Taiwan and China.

Handsets developed by these manufacturers are shipped around the world, with strongest demand in Southeast Asia and Latin America, followed by Africa, the Middle East and India.

This month Telegent begins sampling a hybrid ISDB-T/analog mobile TV receiver that enables both digital and analog TV reception in handsets, targeting users in Latin America.

Telegent is also continuing to improve its analog mobile TV receiver product line on dimensions such as picture quality, power consumption and chip size.

“Free-to-air mobile TV receivers continue to dominate the mobile TV landscape through 2014, with analog mobile TV accounting for half of industry shipments,” said Will Strauss, principal analyst at industry analyst Forward Concepts.

“We estimate annual shipments in 2014 at 198 million units, with three mobile TV standards emerging as the volume leaders – analog, ISDB-T1 and CMMB.”
