Delhi, New Delhi, India, 2007/04/03 - DD took a lead in successfully completing its trials of the Mobile TV technology. Growing need of interactive accessibility in the country will make mobile TV a success story.
Mobile TV is certain to gain popularity but compatibility issues need to be addresses by using a single chip on handheld devices.
Still under trial phase in several countries before the launch on commercial scale, Doordarshan, the State Broadcaster, has lead the technology’s testing in India and carried out the trials successfully, informed officials from Prasar Bharti. Actually, the DD TV on mobile was intended to be launched from January 26, 2007 but the plan was shelved, informed officials.
DD officials report that although the trial phase was completed successfully and DD channels made an appearance on mobile phones, some technical limits were still there yet to be checked.
Considering the extent of mobile penetration and its rate of growth in India, mobile TV is surely going to make its place. It has been accepted now that there is a striking change in the customer behavioral patterns with consumers desiring for ‘anytime anywhere interactive access facility’ that can be accomplished only by the effective confluence of mobile, broadcasting, and wireless technologies. The decision of selecting the platform and primetime will solely made by the consumer.
As customers increasingly rely on their mobile phones for the creation of video content, new broadcast platforms will come up to distribute this video content to other mobile users.
