Mobile TV Technology Takes Advantage Of Local Broadcasts
Jan 4, 2007, 2:00 PM by (staff)
Samsung will demonstrate a new mobile TV technology that will allow local broadcasters to beam programming to cell phones as well as televisions at CES. Broadcasters would need to send a separate signal for the phones, but would be able to use their current digital spectrum to do so. Currently mobile TV solutions like MediaFLO and Modeo that broadcast TV over a dedicated network also require dedicated spectrum. Samsung has integrated the technology to receive these broadcasts into sample handsets for the demonstration. The technology will need to be approved and adopted by broadcasters before similar handsets will be available for sale.
