Qualcomm’s DVB-H Chip

Qualcomm is making a DVB-H chip.

From the press release:

“NEW YORK (Reuters) – Qualcomm Inc. (QCOM.O: Quote, Profile, Research) is developing chips based on a mobile television standard that rivals its own MediaFlo wireless technology, Chief Executive Paul Jacobs said on Monday.

Jacobs said it would be in Qualcomm’s interest to make chips for DVB-H, a television standard for mobile phones that rivals such as Nokia (NOK1V.HE: Quote, Profile, Research) are championing, because the success of this standard could boost the uptake of wireless TV in general.

“It doesn’t always have to be a Qualcomm technology that’s deployed for us to benefit,” Jacobs said at the Reuters Global Technology, Media and Telecoms Summit in New York.”
