Here’s another IFA ‘world first’: a portable digital terrestrial (Freeview) set-top box with a built in 11cm LCD screen. Measuring 17cm x 9cm and tipping the scales at 425 grammes, the mobile set-top box can be connected to a TV using composite video or Scart. There’s also a USB port for software downloads via the PC and an optional external antenna for digital TV reception at high speeds. The mobile set-top box operates on a rechargeable battery that provides up to 2.5 hours playtime. A 12 Volt car adaptor is available as an optional extra. The DTI0601 will be available in the UK, Australia, France, Germany and Italy in early 2006.
