HONG KONG: Nokia stamped its commitment to broadcast mobile TV by live simulcast demonstration of pay-TV channels on its Digital Video Broadcast-Handheld (DVB-H) enabled Nokia N92.

Being showcased for the first time at the Casbaa convention, which brings together the leading participants in the Asia-Pacific region?s television industry, the demonstration includes the first-ever broadcast of Casbaa TV channel that is broadcasting the conference proceedings live, and several other international pay-TV channels during the convention.

?The first-ever broadcast of the Casbaa TV channel and several pay-TV channels on the Nokia N92 at the annual Casbaa convention gives the industry further proof that broadcast mobile TV using DVB-H technology is a reality,? 

an official statement quoted Jawahar Kanjilal, Director, Multimedia Experiences, Asia-Pacific, Nokia, as saying.

?With pay-TV subscriptions approaching saturation in many countries, the industry?s leading participants now have first-hand evidence of how the mobile device can help extend their broadcast footprint across the region,? he added.

During the week of the convention, Casbaa delegates and officials have been issued with Nokia N92 multimedia computers, which will enable them to stay connected with the conference while enjoying the personal television experience.

?Nokia is fully committed to broadcast mobile TV and the DVB-H technology, and we will strive towards an open and competitive ecosystem similar to the one that has made GSM/WCDMA-based mobile telephony so successful today,? 

added Kanjilal.

In September this year, Nokia and the Vietnam Multimedia Corporation, Vietnam?s leading national broadcaster and operator in digital broadcasting, announced the decision to launch commercial broadcast mobile TV services to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi by the end of 2006.

Consumers in both cities will enjoy seven digital TV channels and a near video-on-demand service ? on the Nokia N92, from a catalog of selected titles offered by VTC.

In June this year, the DVB-H Asia Pacific Alliance (DAPA), comprising Australia?s The Bridge Networks, MECA from Indonesia, Malaysia?s MiTV, and Nokia was established to promote the sharing of best practices and to keep member companies appraised of new business and technological developments in broadcast mobile TV.

The group will also support regulatory preparation and discussion to facilitate the adoption of DVB-H as the standard for mobile TV in the Asia Pacific region.

Nokia also announced interoperability agreements with Sony-Ericsson and Motorola earlier this year.

During the FIFA World Cup in Germany this year, multivendor interoperability was showcased with the Nokia N92 multimedia computer and DVB-H enabled devices from other manufacturers, in a pilot project run by German mobile network operators E-Plus, O2, T-Mobile and Vodafone.

In the Asia Pacific region, Nokia has participated in broadcast mobile TV trials in Singapore, Australia, Malaysia, India, Indonesia, and Taiwan (R.O.C).

Globally, pilots and market research studies so far have shown high positive feedback for broadcast mobile TV services.
