The Open Mobile Video Coalition today announced a new set of tools that television broadcasters and handset makers can use to help increase the availability of mobile DTV services. The documents and reference guides are aimed at making it easier to determine how DTV signals will propagate and be received by devices in moving cars, and by stationary users both indoors and outdoors. Mobile DTV signals are already available from some 75 broadcasters, but few handsets are equipped to receive them. Mobile DTV is broadcast alongside standard television signals. The broadcast industry hopes that most mobile phones will eventually be equipped to receive mobile DTV signals. Mobile DTV is an alternative developed by the television industry to Qualcomm's now-defunct MediaFLO mobile television service.
