LG to show off MPH TV

LG will use this month's CES expo, being held in Las Vegas, to demonstrate its new mobile TV technology, according a report out of South Korea. CES will mark the unveiling of MPH, the Mobile Pedestrian Handheld standard. It is intended for broadcasting digital, over-the-air TV to portable devices, regardless of where they are being used; LG claims that signals can reach MPH devices going as fast as 55mph. Perhaps most crucially for broadcasters supporting the technology, it will be able to operate over the same frequencies as the existing VSB standard.

MPH exists in support of a greater standard called Digital TV, which may become the North American (or global) equivalent of Korea's DMB, Japan's 1Seg, or Europe's DVB. While LG itself has not revealed any products using the new technology, Kenwood has announced that forthcoming auto entertainment systems will come with MPH-based DTV receivers.
