DVB-H - Digital Video Broadcasting Handheld

This ETSI standard is an enhancement to the DVB-T architecture which specifies how TV content can be distributed to handheld receivers such as mobile phones and PDA s. The DVB-H standard was published in 2004 and has since seen widespread deployment across the globe, particularly by mobile service providers. DVB-H is a physical layer technology which employs a battery conserving technique termed timeslicing. This involves the mobile only listening for content at set time intervals, in much the same way as a GSM phone would operate with respect to TDMA. In terms of spectrum usage, multiple DVB-H channels occupy a channel which would normally be allocated to one DVB-T channel.
