7in high-resolution models steer trends in 7in & smaller DVB-T TVs segment

Makers are setting their sights on 800x480 pixels, with some developing units with 720p decoding or full HD capability.


  • 7in models dominate: Portable DVB-T TVs measuring 7in represent half of China’s shipments of portable TVs or three-fourths of small DVB-T deliveries for the last six months. To meet rising demand for units with larger screens, a growing number of makers are reducing output of 4.3in and smaller versions.
  • Step up to higher resolution: R&D efforts revolve mainly around enhancing the resolution. Manufacturers are using LCD panels able to support 800x480 pixels instead of just 480x272 or 320x240 pixels. Some are developing units with 720p decoding or full HD capability.
  • Flexible configurations: With the mature technology, more suppliers are customizing specifications to suit diverse requirements. Companies can use different DVB-T, analog, ATSC or ISDB-T tuner or add multimedia playback, FM, DAB, e-book reader and games on request. USB and HDMI ports, and SD/MMC slots are optional.
  • Competition from “connected” devices: Makers expect demand for traditional portable TVs and DVB-T models to slow down due to the influx of compact, “smart” electronics such as smartphones and tablet PCs. Some are considering DVB-H or OTT-based solutions to boost competitiveness.
