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: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
