DMB

Digital Multimedia Broadcasting. Developed and first adopted in South Korea (2005), DMB is a digital transmission system for television, radio and datacasting to mobile devices/phones and can operate over satellite (S-DMB) or terrestrially (T-DMB). DMB is based on the Eureka 147 Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) standard, and has similarities with DVB-H, a competing mobile TV standard.

T-DMB (ETSI standard TS 102 427 and TS 102 428) uses MPEG-4 H.264 for video and HE-AAC V2 for the audio, together encapsulated in an MPEG-2 transport stream (TS). The encoded TS is broadcast on DAB in data stream mode. Application devices include mobile phones, portable TV, and PDAs as well as data/radio for cars.
