Qualcomm announced the first MediaFLO technology drive test in collaboration with Toyota. Powered by the MediaFLO broadcast mobile TV platform, which enables mobile TV for subscribers across the United States, live televised programming was transmitted to a vehicle equipped with a MediaFLO phone connected to in-car video displays. The drive test, conducted successfully throughout San Diego County, demonstrated the MediaFLO platform’s ability to deliver high-quality, uninterrupted video transmissions in real world driving conditions.
"We are very pleased to further demonstrate how the MediaFLO platform supports diverse broadcast mobile TV services in a host of solutions beyond mobile handsets," said Neville Meijers, senior vice president and general manager of Qualcomm MediaFLO Technologies. "Purpose-built for mobility and speed, MediaFLO technology is an ideal complement to existing automotive applications."
