Meld Technology Teams with Spectrum Bridge [Travel & Leisure Close - Up]
(Travel & Leisure Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Meld Technology and Spectrum Bridge announced the availability of the MT300 Personal Broadcast station.
Meld's patented TV transmission technology enables the use of TV White Space spectrum for sending HD video and control signals over- the-air using unlicensed spectrum.
According to a release, the Meld transmitter uses a standard TV signal to transmit multiple HD video streams and control many TVs wirelessly at a 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 users can plug a TV into an electric outlet, they have an instant content viewing platform that is limited only by the number of TVs they have in 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 Personal Broadcast their content directly to any DTV."
Meld said its 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 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.
"The ability to access available broadcast channels by the MELD System will open the door to new and unique applications for local content delivery," said Rod Dir, CEO of Spectrum Bridge. "This solution exemplifies the forward thinking and commercial opportunities for White Space technology."
Meld partnered with Spectrum Bridge to guide them through the FCC certification and integrate the MT300 with their spectrum management platform.
Meld develops systems and intellectual property to serve content to any Digital TV ever made.
