MediaFLO technology recognised by Japan’s MIC
November 13, 2009
Qualcomm has revealed that Japan's Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) has recognised MediaFLO technology as one of two official technologies for nationwide mobile multimedia broadcasting services in Japan. This milestone signifies that MediaFLO-enabled mobile TV services may be deployed in Japan once spectrum is made available in 2011.
The only other mobile broadcast technology recognised by the MIC for this purpose is ISDB-Tmm, an evolution of Japan's digital TV (DTV) standard, ISDB-T.
