QUALCOMM achieves support of MediaFLO, ISDB-T standards on a multimode handset

QUALCOMM last week announced the ability to support the MediaFLO and International Integrated Services Digital Broadcasting-Terrestrial (International ISDB-T) mobile TV standards on a multimode handset.

Using QUALCOMM’s Universal Broadcast Modem (UBM) chipset, the MediaFLO technology would complement the free-to-air ISDB-T One-Seg standard used in Japan and the ISDB-TB standard used in Brazil, enabling a mix of free and paid mobile broadcast content and services.

By employing both technologies in a combined service offering, broadcasters and operators can offer free-to-air content using International ISDB-T, while providing pay TV channels and enhanced services over the MediaFLO platform to generate subscription revenue.

The UBM solution supports the MediaFLO system as well as DVB-H and one-segment implementations of ISDB-T.
