Qualcomm this week announced MediaFLO, a new subsidiary with a goal of delivering high-quality video and audio programming to mobile phones in the United States. MediaFLO will use dedicated national spectrum in the 700 MHz band. The spectrum was formerly UHF TV channel 55, which has been vacated by the move to digital television, and subsequently purchased by Qualcomm. The network will support up to 15 live streaming channels and well over 50 clip-cast video and audio channels. This content will be delivered at QVGA resolution video, at up to 30 frames per second with high-quality stereo audio. The service will use FLO technology, which is specifically designed for decoding and playback on mobile phones. The service will work with both CDMA EV-DO and WCDMA technology. Qualcomm expects to begin commercial operation of the new network in 2006.
