13 Feb 2013 | Rasmus Larsen |

After months of speculation, Intel has finally revealed that it is working on a complete TV service and TV boxes together with partners. The new TV solution will be a combination of TV channels, on-demand and apps. Intel says that it will be unlike anything else that exists today. The development group includes former employees from Apple, Netflix and Google.<br /><br /><h3>Intel to try again in TV</h3>Intel has tried to enter the TV industry before, lately with the first generation of Google TV. That was not a success to say it lightly, but Intel is back for another try. The new bet is a complete TV platform where Intel supplies the chips and hardware for other manufacturers to sell products.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/allthingsdintel-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/allthingsdintel-1.jpg" alt="Intel at All Things D" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Erik Huggers, Intel (right) reveals that Intel is hard at work at developing an Internet TV service and TV box, picture: Asa Mathat</i></p><br /><div style="font-family:ff-din-web-condensed,helvetica,sans-serif;float:right;width:260px;font-size:24px;line-height:24px;color:#016694;margin-left:20px;margin-bottom:20px;letter-spacing:-1px;text-transform:uppercase;font-style:italic;display:inline-block">The goal: To build the best Internet television service ever</div>The TV service will be a combination of TV channels, on-demand, and TV apps, Intel revealed at the Dive into Media conference. But it will not only work on TV boxes but also on for example an iPad, Intel adds.<br /><br />Intel’s project is more of a specification set and hardware than a product. Intel wants to offer a solution for other manufacturer to sell – kind of like the Ultrabook specification. It is a sort of “Intel Inside” project where Intel hopes to sign major electronics players.<br /><br />Intel says that they are working hard to create compelling software that is unlike anything on the market today, including the current Smart TVs. Intel also plans to utilize <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1359361589><b>H.265 (HEVC) compression</b></a>. H.265 can enable better HD streaming and possibly even 4K streaming. Lastly, Intel plans to integrate a camera that allows the system to give individualized recommendations based on the viewer in front of the TV.<br /><br />Intel is already testing the new TV service with employees and expects to launch this year in the US.
