Nokia studies mobile TV in Sweden


Today Nokia announced a new industrial DVB-H pilot in Stockholm with Teracom in Sweden. Nokia is offering Nokia N92 portable TV devices and the Nokia Mobile Broadcast System 3.0 to the pilot that may last from October to December 2006 and contains 400 customers. The project is a co-operation between ATG, Boxer, Nokia, Sveriges Radio, Sveriges Television/UR, Telenor and Teracom.

The pilot members will have the ability to view fourteen TELEVISION channels and listen to four radio channels within the Stockholm city area, in which a system has been designed for good quality indoor and outdoor coverage. The target is to consider what Swedish people think about professional broadcast portable TV.

ATG, Boxer, Sveriges Radio and Sveriges Tv will provide information for the pilot. The test will be provided using Nokia Mobile Broadcast Solution 3.0, and mobile devices will be used by the pilot participants from Nokia, the Nokia N92. Teracom will undoubtedly be accountable for the system, the broadcast and running of the system.

We strongly rely on the ability of the technology as-well as in the mobile TV company, and we are looking towards delivering the total potential and curiosity of broadcast mobile TV in Sweden, says Sigurd Leth, Multimedia Director for Nokia Nordic.

DVB-H technology complements present operator networks, optimizing quality and ability. It gives the chance to consumers to enjoy high quality terrestrial electronic contacts along side voice telephony and access to the internet all-in one device. Broadcast mobile TV will offer you new work at home opportunities for mobile service providers, information and broadcast infrastructure, companies and device manufacturers together with technology providers.

This is actually the next cellular TV pilot in Sweden where Nokia is one of the key suppliers of DVB-H technology. Last week, Nokia announced a brand new agreement with TeliaSonera Sweden for-a comprehensive DVB-H pilot system, including Nokia Mobile Broadcast System 3.0 and Nokia N92 mobile TV devices, underpinned by Nokia's hosting and systems integration know-how.
