In mobile communication network, the mobile device integrated with TV player is a novel technology that provides TV program services to end users. As TV program is a real-time video service, it has greater technical difficulties to overcome than a traditional video file download or online streaming, especially when TV programs are played on handheld devices. A challenge is how to save power in order to provide users with longer TV program services. To address this issue, this study proposes a mobile TV system on a heterogeneous multicore platform, which utilizes a Digital Video Broadcasting-Handheld (DVB-H) wireless network to receive the TV program signal, thus, saving power according to the features of DVB-H TV signal and heterogeneous multi-core.
