  - MediaTek's wireless platforms enable the ecosystem to create devices and
      solutions that offer consumers seamless multi-screen connectivity

HSINCHU,Taiwan, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MediaTek , a leading fabless
semiconductor company for wireless communications and digital multimedia
solutions, is unveiling an array of industry firsts and award winning
multi-screen platforms at CES 2013 to make the connected home a reality. With
cross-platform advantages in the DTV, mobile and wireless markets, MediaTek is
enabling the smart ecosystem to build innovative, multi-screen convergence
solutions more quickly, and provide consumers with seamlessly engaging and
interactive experiences.

In 2012 about 90 percent of people use multiple screens for their digital
activities (Note 1), a trend that is dramatically accelerating the consumer
demand for seamlessly integrated, high-quality multi-screen experiences in
2013 and beyond. As a key technology enabler with a leading position in the
digital TV segment, numerous breakthroughs in the smartphone market and
pioneering developments in wireless technologies, MediaTek is setting an
industry's first by integrating Miracast-certified Wi-Fi display technology
with Near Field Communications (NFC) to seamlessly interlink a Smart TV with
the latest MediaTek quad-core smartphone platform. With a simple tap of the
device, it is possible to wirelessly stream HD quality video and other
multimedia content such as video and games from mobile and other devices onto
big screen HDTVs without connecting through an access point.

In addition, MediaTek will also be demonstrating:

  *A Smart Wi-Fi Router-on-a-Chip platform-- MT7620A for Personal Cloud
    Computing that powers D-Link's 2013 CES award winning DIR-508 11N Pocket
    Cloud Router.
  *The first and only smartphone platform in the Wi-Fi certified Passpoint™
    program test bed-- MT6575 + MT6620, which helps offload capacity-strained
    cellular networks.
  *802.11ac + 802.11n dual-band concurrent Wi-Fi router platform-- MT7620A +
    MT7610E that delivers the superior Wi-Fi performance needed to drive
    seamless connectivity between all devices in the home.
  *Serving as the hub of the connected home is MediaTek's MT5396 series-- an
    innovative 4K2K 120Hz and Smart/3D TV SoC platform with integrated MEMC
    (Motion Estimation, Motion Compensation) technology, TCON/OD, Wi-Fi, video
    decoder, as well as HTML5 and all-round screen sharing technology support.
    The MT5396 series makes it possible to develop affordable Smart TV
    products with rich functionality such as App Stores, Netflix VOD
    streaming, YouTube 2nd screen and a host of WebGL applications.

"Across the TV, tablet, and smartphone platforms, MediaTek sees device
integration continuing to accelerate in 2013 and beyond, driven by end-users'
demand for new and innovative experiences that improve people's lives," said
Ching-Jiang Hsieh, President of MediaTek. "While integrated smart devices have
been available for some time, they have never delivered a truly seamless
multi-screen experience, until now. We have taken a major step forward towards
a world of advanced, innovative technology connected in a rich smart ecosystem
that makes digital content and device functionality screen-agnostic and
affordable by almost everyone -- and it's all enabled by MediaTek.
