The reality of mobile TV in the UK

17.10.2006
Mobile TV in the UK has started to become a reality and with the Oxford 3G/DVB-H Mobile TV trial revealing strong consumer demand for broadcast TV to mobiles, the Oxford University CPD Centre presents a new course in 3G / DVB-H (digital video broadcasting - handheld) Mobile TV.

Described as the “seventh mass media”, the popularity of Mobile TV in the UK is certain to increase with participants in the Oxford 3G/DVB-H trial reporting an 85% satisfaction level. Mobile TV is already a reality in countries ranging from South Korea to Norway. South Korea was the first country to go commercial with digital TV broadcasts to mobile phones in May 2005 and today has over 2.1 million users. In Norway, Mobile TV viewing time has doubled after the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) introduced interactivity to its Mobile TV offering.

The Oxford 3G Mobile TV course is lead by two of the foremost experts in the field of 3G: James Parton, who was involved in the Oxford 3G/DVB-H Mobile TV trial, and Tomi Ahonen, one of the world's leading 3G Independent Consultants and author of four authoritative books on the subject of 3G and Mobile TV, who says: "The video experience on mobile phones will not replicate TV or the internet. Mobile TV is a new mass media, the seventh, and video content and services will be as different as TV was from radio; as different as the web was from print. We are already seeing radical new formats and opportunities that are vastly more compelling than anything that can be accomplished in the traditional broadcast formats for TV from user-generated content like SeeMeTV to interactive advertising to enhanced reality-TV formats."

The Oxford 3G Mobile TV course is an intensive one-day course for TV broadcasting and mobile telecoms programming, content and services experts, and business planners in the emerging space on the "fourth screen" and the "seventh mass media".

Non-technical in nature with no prior knowledge of cellular telecoms or TV broadcasting required, this course offers an insight into mobile broadcasting for those who want to enter this new market and meet consumer demand for ‘personal TV’. The course will cover mobile TV as well as other multi-media services including live streaming, music video, gaming, and interactive services.

The course will explore the mobile video and TV environment, migration and integration of content to mobile, made-for-mobile TV content, and impact to the TV, mobile and advertising industries. To better illustrate these topics, real-life case studies will be used as examples.

This 3G/DVB-H Mobile TV course takes place in Oxford on 13th November.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
