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.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
