The handset manufacturers will work together to support offerings based on the open OMA BCAST standard available for operator partners interested in deploying multi-vendor mobile TV services and trials in 2007 and onward.
"Within DVB-H technology, Samsung has already commercialised handsets based on the CBMS OSF standard, and will develop the OMA BCAST standard-based mobile TV handset," said Kwang Suk Hyun, senior vice president of the Alliance Team at Samsung Electronics.
Harri Mannisto, director of multimedia at Nokia, added: "We see that the OMA BCAST standard is essential in launching mobile TV services on a global scale.
"Further, the well-defined service and content protection profiles within the OMA BCAST standard, such as the already now available OMA DRM, provide the ideal path towards standardised solutions enabling a coherent and open market for successful worldwide mobile TV deployments."
