Open Mobile Video Coalition pumps up push for mobile digital video

Promoting its Advanced Television Systems Committee’s (ATSC) mobile/handheld standard-setting process, the Open Mobile Video Coalition (OMVC) has committed to expand its funding, member station participation and manpower to test and evaluate its candidate standard.

The OMVC has proposed corroborative testing of the M/H physical layer, independent verification of the candidate standard, complete system validation, and on-air facility and interoperability testing. The OMVC previously participated in the collaborative Independent Demonstration of Viability (IDOV).

“This is a natural follow-on to the successful IDOV work,” said Anne Schelle, OMVC executive director. “This moves beyond testing of the baseline physical layer to embrace end-to-end tests. Comprehensive test and evaluation is vital to maintaining our strong support from broadcasters and affiliated industry stakeholders.”
