Finnish Mobile TV Project at IAAF World championships
The Finnish DVB-H mobile trial which has been running in Helsinki for several months went mainstream during the World Athletic Championships held in August.
Nokia got together with network operator Digita, operators Elisa, Telia Sonora and TV stations YLE, MTV and Channel 4 to enable 300 people, loaned smart phones, to test-real time broadcasts during the athletics competition.
The multi-channel package included domestic broadcasts of the championship, compilation broadcasts for international distribution and five special Championship broadcasts of individual events.
