Micronas GmbH and Cabot Communications have announced the first hybrid analog-digital video decoder platform to be pre-integrated with an MHEG-5 (Multimedia and Hypermedia information coding Expert Group) engine.

The MDE 9500 single-CPU video decoder allows CE manufacturers to design cost effective IDTVs with only one CPU and STBs and conforms to imminent FreeView minimum receiver specifications that are set to include the MHEG-5 interactive standard. Integrated with Cabot's Mercator MHEG-5 development kit and incorporating Cabot's Callisto over-air download module, the MDE 9500 provides manufacturers with a secure and robust field upgrade technology that conforms to the existing U.K. standard.

The company claims that the product is the industry's first MHEG-5 pre-integration with the MDE 9500 hybrid video decoder.
