DVB-H

DVB-H Receiver 

 

 

DVB-H is a technical specification for the transmission of digital TV to handheld receivers such as mobile telephones and PDAs. Published as a formal standard (EN 203 204) by ETSI in November 2004, it is a physical layer specification designed to enable the efficient delivery of IP-encapsulated data over terrestrial networks. The creation of DVB-H, which is closely related to DVB-T, also entailed modifications of some other DVB standards dealing with data broadcasting, Service Information, etc. It can be used as a bearer in conjunction with the DVB-IPDC systems layer specifications or alternatively with the OMA BCAST specifications. A non-proprietary open standard, DVB-H has broad support across the industry and services are now on air in more than ten countries.
