WRAL and CBS are testing a new mobile digital TV technology that can send specially encoded signals to receivers built into devices such as cell phones. The digital TV is sent over the same signals as local HDTV broadcasts openly over the air. The field tests are taking place in Raleigh-Durham, N.C., and are being supported by a number of companies, including Harris Corporation, LG Electronics and Zenith. They, and WRAL and CBS, belong to the Open Mobile Video Coalition, a group that is hoping to deploy mobile digital TV as early as next year. This technology would provide access to local digital TV, which could compete with Qualcomm's MediaFLO mobile TV technology, currently being used by AT&T and Verizon Wireless.
