The newest MediaTek TV system-on-chip (SoC) continues MediaTek’s legacy in multimedia innovation, bringing consumers around the world richer entertainment experiences.

“MediaTek brings to TVs many of the same features and technology we deliver to the smartphone market, including high resolution picture quality, AI and voice support, to make the latest smart TV features accessible to everyone,” said Mike Chang, General Manager of MediaTek’s Smart Home business unit. “With this newest chip, along with our chipest for 8K TVs, MediaTek will continue to innovate the intelligent home experience.
