Alcatel-Lucent Shows Unified Mobile TV across 3G and S-Band

At 3GSM World Congress 2007, Alcatel-Lucent showcased seamless access to TV channels delivered via 3G or broadcast networks, on a single device. This single device allows viewers to seamlessly access and browse among a selection of 3G-based TV channels as well as broadcast TV channels using the S-Band (2.2 GHz). The terminal used is a Pocket PC-powered PDA. The S-band capability of the terminal is achieved thanks to an S-Band chipset provided by DiBcom.

Additionally, for the first time in a public trade show, Alcatel-Lucent is demonstrating plain broadcast Mobile TV in the S-Band using SAGEM myMobileTV handsets.
