At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, kicking off in Las Vegas tomorrow, the latest developments in bringing TV shows to mobile devices will be highlighted.
The latest developments in live mobile broadcasting, which brings TV shows to mobile devices, will be highlighted next week in the Mobile TV TechZone of the International CES. Consumer demand for live, on-the-go TV content is driving new products and services coming from broadcasters and device manufacturers, many of which will be on display at CES.
With more than 130 local broadcasters now on-air, Mobile TV is both a growing service in more than three dozen broadcast markets nationwide and a platform to demonstrate future capabilities in mobile emergency alerts and 3D broadcasting. The chief advantage of Mobile TV is its use of over-the-air broadcast signals, which are ideal for delivering video. Wireless cell phone networks, on the other hand, are susceptible to congestion and users subject to costly data charges, particularly when accessing video content.
The 2013 Mobile TV TechZone at CES will include new products and demonstrations from Mobile Content Venture (MCV), the Mobile Emergency Alert System, the Mobile500 Alliance, and the ETRI research center from Korea:
