KPN Tests Mobile TV

KPN started its first field trial of interactive digital television to a mobile device on the 7th July 2005. KPN are holding the trial in the Hague together with its partners Nozema Services and Digitenne, supported by TNO.
KPN plan to test various technical aspects of the service during the first few weeks of operation.  A more extensive trial with several hundred users will start later in the year.
The DVB-T  broadcasting infrastructure already being used by KPN and Digitenne will be used for the trial. The images to mobile phones will be transmitted using DVB-H and received on Nokia 7710 media devices fitted with a DVB-H receiver. Depending on the results of the pilot, KPN expects to bring mobile digital television to market during 2006.
