Washington — The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) said Friday it has received 10 responses to a request for proposals for its mobile and handheld standard (ATSC-M/H) for mobile over-the-air digital TV reception.

The ATSC-M/H standard will enable delivery of television content and data to mobile and handheld devices via broadcast DTV signals.

ATSC President Mark Richer stated, “It is exhilarating to see this amount of interest from the industry. We look forward to reviewing all of the submitted proposals for the ATSC-M/H standard.”

The ATSC’s Technology and Standards Group issued the RFP on May 21, encouraging companies to propose specifications to be used for ATSC-M/H.

Preliminary proposals have been received from the following organizations:

  • Coding Technologies
  • Coherent Logix
  • DTS
  • LG Electronics and Harris
  • Mobile DTV Alliance
  • Micronas Semiconductor
  • Nokia
  • Samsung Electronics and Rohde & Schwarz

Detailed descriptions for each are due to ATSC on July 6.
