Samsung, Nokia partner on mobile TV

Samsung and Nokia said on Monday they will work to achieve interoperability among their DVB-H (Digital Video Broadcast – Handheld) enabled mobile devices and the Nokia network services system.

The handset manufacturers will work together to support devices based on the open OMA BCAST standard available for operator partners interested in deploying multi-vendor mobile TV services and trials this year.

Within DVB-H technology, Samsung has already commercialised handsets based on the CBMS OSF standard and will now develop OMA BCAST standards based mobile TV handsets.

“The well-defined service and content protection profiles within the OMA BCAST standard such as the already now available OMA DRM, provides the ideal path towards standardised solutions enabling a coherent and open market for successful worldwide mobile TV deployments,” said Harri Mannisto, director of multimedia at Nokia.
