DVB-H aims at sustaining the European leadership in telecommunications, in particular in the mobile multimedia environment: using a set of DVB Forum standards, DVB-H provides streamed IP Multimedia contents to handheld devices (such as mobile cellular phones) with an unequalled efficiency, supporting advantageous comparison with any other standards, including the Japanese ISDB-T or T-DMB.

DVB-H provides a coherent set of features (time-sliced service transmissions, additional link layer protections, new physical layer modes and signaling, etc.) to efficiently serve handheld terminals, thus fostering network co-operation between Terrestrial Broadcast (DVB-H) and Mobile Telecommunications (GSM, GPRS, UMTS) and materializing the vision of Wireless Broadband Access anywhere, anytime.

Wing TV project objectives are strategic to the fulfillment of the aforementioned vision: to test and to verify in detail the DVB-H specification, to ensure compatibility with traditional DVB-T services, to check interoperability of appliances; and to constitute mandatory goals in order to guarantee a successful deployment of services.

As the ACTS VALIDATE project eased the worldwide stabilization of the DVB-T standard, Wing TV will foster a successful worldwide deployment of the newborn DVB-H technology.

Focus areas
  • Enable use of DVB-H for successful IP content distribution services to mobile users
  • Test and verify DVB-H specifications, to ensure compatibility with DVB-T

Expected outcome
  1. Validate DVB-H standards by laboratory tests and field trials in different countries,
  2. DVB-H equipment & network testing methodology,
  3. Proof & Pertinence of DVB-H concept
  4. DVB-H Implementation and measurement guidelines
