IPWireless Signs Partners for its TDtv

IPWireless announced a mobile TV partnership today with Vidiator, a leading provider of mobile multimedia streaming, to jointly develop mobile broadcasting solutions based on the 3GPP Multimedia Broadcast and Multicast Standard. The companies will work together to integrate Vidiator's new Broadcast Multicast Service Center, or BMSC, into IPWireless' recently announced MBMS-based TDtv solution. The implementation will be used as part of a trial of IPWireless' TDtv mobile TV solution.

TDtv, launched last month by IPWireless, allows 3G operators to deliver mobile TV services using their existing unused spectrum and cell site infrastructure. The technology competes with DVB-H and MediaFLO (both of which require separate networks).

Earlier this week, IPWireless announced a partnership with MobiTV.
