Dutch DVB-H Mobile TV Pilot Starts Thursday

Soon after announcing the results of DVB-H mobile TV testing in Finland Nokia reported it had a mobile TV pilot on the air in Amsterdam with Dutch broadcast service provider Nozema Services. Nozema Services is working with KPN and Digitenne to provide programming to several hundred participants using Nokia 7710 smartphones capable of receiving the DVB-H broadcasts.

The press release announcing the Amsterdam mobile TV pilot, Nokia reported that it and Nozema have implemented a Nokia IPDC service system. The system schedules and processes incoming video and audio services and transforms them into a valid DVB-H signal, which is then sent to a special pilot network of dedicated transmitters covering a large part of The Hague, as well as the connecting rail lines and motorways.
