Types of Mobile Video
A Mobishow is a term to describe a broadcast quality
programmer / series which has been produced, directed, edited and encoded for the mobile phone.
Mobishows can range from short video clips such as betting advice or the latest celebrity gossip, through to half hour drama
serials. Examples include The Ashes and Mr.
Paparazzi Show which both were created for mobile viewing.
Mobile video also comes in the form of
streaming TV over the mobile network, which
must be a 2.5G or 3G network. This mimics a
television station in that the user cannot
elect to see what they wish but must watch
whatever is on the channel at the time.
There is also mobile broadcast TV, which
operates like a traditional television station
and broadcasts the content over a different
spectrum. This frees up the mobile network to
handle calls and other data usage, and because
of the "one-to-many" nature of mobile
broadcast TV the video quality is a lot better
than that streamed over the mobile networks,
which is a "one-to-one" system.
The problem is that broadcast technologies
don't have a natural uplink, so for users to
interact with the TV stream the service has to
be closely integrated to the carriers mobile
network. The main technologies for broadcast
TV are DVB-H, DMB (Digital Multimedia
Broadcasting) and Media FLO.
Modern phones come with Bluetooth. This allows
video to be sent from phone to phone over
Bluetooth, which has the advantages that there
is no data charge.
