Mobile DTV Alliance Adds New Members
The Mobile Digital TV Alliance consists of corporations working together to promote the use of DVB-H and open standards for digital TV on handheld and mobile devices. Last week the MDTV Alliance said six corporations joined as Contributor level members. The new members are Freescale Semiconductor Inc.; Harris Corp.; Mediaphy Corp.; MobiTV; Royal Philips Electronics; and Silicon and Software Systems. LSI Logic Corp. joined at the Associate level.

Yoram Solomon, MDTV Alliance President, welcomed the new members.
"The Alliance's rapid growth is a testament to the global momentum of DVB-H and the overall interest in seeing open standards and interoperability when it comes to digital TV on mobile handsets and other handhelds," said Soloman. "Joining other key industry players in the alliance, these latest members add a new perspective and credibility to our focus on accelerating the adoption of DVB-H in North America."

David Glidden, director of TV Strategy and Mobile TV Initiative at Harris Corp., said, "As broadcast television is delivered to an increasingly complex array of hardware platforms, universal standards for digital TV on mobile platforms becomes ever more important. The Mobile Digital TV Alliance supports such a standard with DVB-H, and Harris Corporation is pleased to be working with them."

Promoter level MDTV Alliance members include Intel, Microsoft, Modeo, Motorola, Nokia and Texas Instruments.
