[The Chosun Ilbo, December 17 2007] Korean Mobile TV Technology Adopted as Global Standard

A Korean-made mobile broadcasting technology has been adopted as a global standard. Developed by adding a multimedia aspect to Europe's digital audio broadcasting (DAB) technology, terrestrial digital mobile broadcasting (T-DMB) enables clear reception of video and audio while on the move.

The Ministry of Information and Communication said Saturday that the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) confirmed T-DMB as a global standard after getting approval from its 191 member nations. Other mobile telecommunication technologies adopted as global standards include U.S. company Qualcomm's MediaFLO, Finnish company Nokia's DVB-H and Japan's OneSeg.
