Nokia trials cellular TELEVISION in Sweden


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

The pilot members will be able to view fourteen TELEVISION channels and listen to four radio channels in the Stockholm town location, in which a community is built for high quality indoor and outdoor protection. The target will be to consider what Swedish customers consider professional broadcast mobile TELEVISION.

ATG, Boxer, Sveriges Radio and Sveriges Television will give you information for the pilot. The test will be sent using Nokia Mobile Broadcast Solution 3.0, and the pilot participants will use mobile units from Nokia, the Nokia N92. Teracom will undoubtedly be accountable for the system, the broadcast and operating of the program.

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

DVB-H technology matches existing operator sites, improving ability and quality. It provides the chance to customers to enjoy premium quality terrestrial digital shows along with voice telephony and internet access all-in just one product. Broadcast mobile TELEVISION will offer new business opportunities for mobile service providers, information and broadcast structure, businesses and handset manufacturers as well as 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 contract with TeliaSonera Sweden to get a full DVB-H pilot program, including Nokia Mobile Broadcast System 3.0 and Nokia N92 portable TV units, underpinned by Nokia's hosting and systems integration know-how.

The feedback from different cellular TV pilots is promising. Results from pilots on broadcast (DVB-H) mobile TV services amongst people in Finland, the UK, Spain and France have revealed important signs over future business models in addition to clear consumer demand for such services for commercial mobile TV services..
