Intel and China Central Television establish research lab for HD initiatives


Not sure if you've been paying close attention, but Intel's been scrounging around in China for awhile now in hopes of latching on to a few television-related projects. Back in April, it paired with Legend Silicon to push USB dongles for HDTV viewing, and in March, it shook hands with OKI and Huashu to develop a next-generation STB. Now, the mega-corp is getting in bed with China Central Television (CCTV) in order to establish a research laboratory to "jointly study image processing technologies." Furthermore, the lab will provide "IT support for CCTV's high-definition programs," and it will help improve the processing of HD content in particular. Intel helping the global push for high-def adoption? Who woulda knew?
