Philips, Sony, Matsushita in talks on UK DTT receivers
Svetlana Josifovska Philips, Sony and Matsushita are in discussion between themselves and with the UK Digital TV Group over the Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) receivers expected in Britain next year. There are two potential operating systems for the receivers being considered, each favoured by different parties. “Sony and Philips want to use the MHEG5 operating system but this one will not offer as much graphical information as the OpenTV system that Panasonic hopes to use,” said one Matsushita technical support engineer. A decision is expected soon.
