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.

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
