DVB-H is the upcoming standard for television services on the move. After the successful installation of DVB-T all over Europe, the trend is to bring TV services from the fixed into the wireless format. The cooperation between CTIF and Freescale is to investigate the potential in software and hardware design for the receiving mobile phone to achieve high quality services in combination with low power consumption. Especially the power consumption is a critical issue for mobile battery-driven terminals. First results have shown that power savings around 20% can be achieved for MPEG-4 transmissions only by the optimization of the communication protocols. The bilateral cooperation started in 2004 and is planed to go on in the following years.
