A global supplier of high-quality mobile broadcast DTV solutions, Siano (News - Alert) announced the launch of its new wireless accessory, Meron, now available for Australia, Europe, Japan and Latin America.
Meron is a lightweight and compact wireless accessory, powered to deliver high-quality, free broadcast television to Apple (News - Alert) and Android smartphones and tablets through Wi-Fi technology. It gives users of Apple/ Android the opportunity to enjoy premium quality, live broadcast TV for free on their smartphone devices and tablets.
The leading provider of broadcast DTV solutions is targeting Meron to the consumer electronics distributors and retailers, and OEMs and service providers interested in the branding of the product in their individual location.
Meron delivers a real-time live TV experience, absolutely free of cost, without any payment necessary for TV provider subscriptions and cellular data (air time). In addition, Meron does not charge any mobile data costs, and does not require Internet connection to view TV broadcasts.
Ideally recognized for outstanding mobile television receiver offerings, the product highlights a new addition to Siano’s comprehensive product family launched earlier this year with ‘Carmel,’ a 30-pin dongle for Apple iPad and iPhone (News - Alert) devices.
All of these products from Siano are focused on adding an entertaining and fun live mobile television experience to the most used and renowned smartphones and tablets in the world.
Like other similar solutions in the market, Meron features a CPU-less minimalist architecture, particularly designed to deliver the accessory at a significantly lower cost. It is one of the most efficiently built products in the world, which includes Siano’s powerful and battery-friendly mobile DTV receiver chip, and Wi-Fi transceiver.
It is powered by high-quality DTV Android (News - Alert) and Apple application, SianoTV, customized particularly for Siano by Elgato, the world leader in multimedia applications.
The new SianoTV application is now available on the Google (News - Alert) Play and App Store, absolutely free of cost. Essentially battery-powered for superior performance and flexibility, Meron seamlessly supports more than three hours of television viewing time, and delivers remarkable Wi-Fi range of both outdoor and indoor activities.
Meron also offers global support for ISDB-T 1-Seg, Full-Seg and DVB-T, owing to the company’s comprehensive family of high-quality multi-standard IC’s.
Alon Ironi, chief executive officer at Siano, stated that with increasing choices for smartphones and tablets today, featuring brilliant processing power and high-resolution displays, Meron – in association with SianoTV application – is a powerful tool to equip the smart Web-enabled devices with outstanding television viewing on the go. It can be easily placed anywhere, with Meron ensuring crystal clear TV viewing on your personal smartphone device or tablet. At the same time, Meron is affordably priced, and expected to transform the traditional way of TV watching, making it more appropriate and enjoyable in the era of smartphones and tablets.
A demo of Meron built particularly for North America will be unveiled in the next month.
