TIA Adopts DVB-H As Official Standard For Mobile TV In US

DVB has welcomed the decision by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) to adopt DVB-H as an official standard for Mobile Digital TV in the US.
The publication of TIA-1105, 'Terrestrial Mobile Multimedia Multicast Based On Digital Video Broadcasting For Handheld Devices System', is a further boost to the growing acceptance of the non-proprietary, open standard by broadcast and telecommunications companies engaged in implementing Mobile TV services in the US.
On news of the announcement Peter MacAvock, Executive Director of the DVB Project commented: "DVB-H is now a recognisable global success with announcements almost every day of DVB-H products and services. The TIA’s ratification of the specification as a standard is yet a further significant endorsement and will be seen as an important step in establishing DVB-H as the leading choice for Mobile TV implementers in the US."
In 2004, DVB-H was formally adopted by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) as a standard. The unparalleled support of network operators, broadcasters, content owners, and silicon and equipment manufacturers for the non-proprietary, open standard, has hastened the commercial launch of DVB-H Mobile TV services around the world. Extensive trials and pilot services across five continents have already confirmed and continue to endorse the technical capabilities and economic advantages of DVB-H over competing systems. Commercial DVB-H services are already on-air in Italy, and services have been announced for the US, Finland, Vietnam, France, Germany, Spain, Russia and South Africa before the end of 2007.
