Thomson brings mobile TV to the Baltics
February 7, 2008
Latvian Mobile Telephone (LMT) has established a mobile television trial, the first of its kind in the Baltics, based on an end to end solution from Thomson. The system from Thomson includes a complete video head end and the SmartVision service management platform to give LMT a single point of contact for complete control over its new offering, as well as signal encoding and processing hardware.
LMT is working in partnership with LVRTC, Latvia State Radio and Television Centre, which is providing the DVB-H transmission network. The trial, which went on air in November 2007 and is expected to continue through 2008, offers four live television channels, plus pay per view and interactive services.
