CTN-Mobile

Brings broadcasters and the mobile industry together to explore future developments.

This group has been closed.

Smartphones and tablets now play an important role in accessing media content and services. Mobile broadband is becoming a significant delivery platform for broadcasters. However, the potential of mobile broadband for the delivery of broadcasting content and services to large audiences is unknown. There is limited understanding between the mobile and broadcasting communities.  It is important for broadcasters to do more to study different mobile delivery options and improve the relationship so both parties can benefit in the future.
