MOBILE3DTV - Mobile 3DTV Content Delivery Optimization over DVB-H System - is a three-year project partly funded by the European Union 7th RTD Framework Programme in the context of the Information & Communication Technology (ICT) Cooperation Theme and its objective 1.5 Networked Media. The project started on 1st January 2008. The main objective of MOBILE3DTV is to demonstrate the viability of the new technology of mobile 3DTV. The project develops a technology demonstration system for the creation and coding of 3D video content, its delivery over DVB-H and display on a mobile device.
The consortium of MOBILE3DTV is formed by three universities, a public research institute and two SMEs from Finland, Germany, Turkey, and Bulgaria. The project partners are Tampere University of Technology, Technische Universität Ilmenau, Middle East Technical University, Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institute, Multimedia Solutions Ltd and Tamlink Innovation-Research-Development Ltd.
MOBILE3DTV project cooperates closely with a number of public and private organizations, projects, and networks. It is one of the projects within the 3D Media Cluster - an umbrella structure built upon related EC funded projects to develop joint strategic goals. The consortium of MOBILE3DTV also collaborates on project activities with industrial players such as Texas Instruments and DiBcom as well as research institutions such as Nokia Research Center and Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute of Korea conducting active research in the same fascinating area.
MOBILE3DTV is a small-scale focused collaborative research project funded by the Europe’s Seventh Framework Programme for research and technology development (FP7).
