Mobile tv in Europe: another step for DVB-H

Good news for DVB-H (and bad news for T-DMB ?)

July 2007
Commission proposed a strategy for promoting Mobile TV across Europe.
It included the use of the open standard DVB-H as the common standard for
terrestrial Mobile TV across Europe

November 2007
The Council of Telecoms Ministers endorsed the European Commission's
strategy on Mobile TV

Today, 17/03/2008
Commission endorses addition of DVB-H to EU List of Official standards

"For Mobile TV to take off in Europe, there must first be certainty about the technology. This is why I am glad that with today's decision, taken by the Commission in close coordination with the Member States and the European Parliament, the EU endorse DVB-H as the preferred technology for terrestrial mobile broadcasting," said Viviane Reding, EU Commissioner for the Information Society and Media. The next steps for implementing the EU strategy on mobile broadcasting will include guidance on the authorisation regimes as well as the promotion of rights management systems based, as is DVB-H, on open standards"

Shall I ever read Viviane Reding saying "For digital radio to take off in Europe, there must first be certainty about the technology"??

DVB-H is an open standard developed by the open Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) Consortium. It is part of a family of interoperable standards that dominate digital broadcasting around the world, together with DVB-S for digital satellite TV, DVB-C for digital cable TV and DVB-T for digital terrestrial TV
