The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) announced June 22 that it had received 10 submissions in response to its request for proposals for its Mobile and Handheld Standard (ATSC-M/H).

The ATSC-M/H Standard will enable delivery of TV content and data to mobile and handheld devices via broadcast DTV signals.

The ATSC’s Technology and Standards Group (TSG) issued the request for proposals May 21, encouraging companies to propose specifications to be used for ATSC-M/H.

The following organizations have submitted preliminary proposals:

  • Coding Technologies
  • Coherent Logix
  • DTS
  • LG Electronics and Harris
  • Mobile DTV Alliance
  • Micronas Semiconductor
  • Nokia
  • Samsung Electronics and Rohde & Schwarz
  • Thomson
  • QUALCOMM

Detailed descriptions for all submitted proposals are due July 6.

The MPH system from Harris and LG Electronics and the A-VSB system from Samsung Electronics and Rohde & Schwarz were demonstrated at NAB2007. Both share a slice of the 6MHz DTV channel along with a main and multicast SD and/or HD channel.
