China mobile TV standard
June 26, 2008
According to China.com, T-MMB was selected as the national standard for mobile television/multimedia at an assessment conference, and will be promulgated as the formal national standard for mobile television and multimedia content.
Lou Peide, Secretary General of the China Mobile Communications Association, a professor at Beijing University of Post and Telecommunications, and also promoter of competing standard CDMB has publicly criticised the selection. He stated that standard-selection tests were not reasonable, that many of the experts on the selection panel were not technically proficient, that, while based entirely on T-DMB, T-MMB removed references to T-DMB in its documentation in order to avoid patent problems, and that even disregarding all of these problems, there are still numerous other issues with T-MMB’s actual tests results and its standard documentation
