Harris Supplies Transmitters for UK DVB-H Mobile TV Trials
NTL Broadcast has selected Harris DTV660 series transmitters for a test of DVB-H (Digital Video Broadcast-Handheld) technology in the Oxford area of the United Kingdom. NTL will use 10 transmitting sites, each with a transmitter operating between 100 and 200 watts, to cover the 120 square kilometer area. Mobile operator O2 is also participating in the test and will use the system to deliver 16 TV channels, including interactive gaming and shopping, to 500 of its customers.

Terry Howard, head of media business development at NTL explained the purpose of the test, "This is a commercial trial to test the business case for a mobile TV service in the U.K.. With our significant broadcasting assets, close relationships with content companies and track record of technology innovation, we're ideally positioned to pull this together and we expect the results of the trial to help us shape any future national service deployment."

This information is from the Harris news release Harris Corporation Is Exclusive Supplier of Transmitters for NTL Broadcast Mobile TV Trial in the UK.

For information on other DVB-H trials, see the RF Report for Nov. 1, 2004 and the RF Report for Sept. 21, 2004.
