LG develops inexpensive mobile phone TV technology

December 18th, 2007 · No Comments

LG has developed a mobile TV system able to use existing network technology. Its Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (MBMS), co-developed with Ericsson, uses existing mobile phone networks and does not need additional investment in radio frequencies and infrastructure. The company says that it could be up and running by 2009. A number of more expensive mobile TV solutions have already been proposed, including Digital Video Broadcasting-Handheld (DVB-H), MediaFLO and Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (DMB).
Not only is MBMS more cost-effective than its rivals, it also allows users to multi-task. It is possible to watch mobile TV and make and take at the same time. LG has demonstrated the technology in Korea and says it is in discussions with service providers, including Vodafone, regarding a possible roll-out.
