European Forum for Mobile TV 2007

Kick off for Mobile TV in Europe at the UEFA EURO 2008?

European Forum for Mobile TV 2007 as part of the international media conference Medienwoche Berlin-Brandenburg, 30 August in Berlin


Berlin, Potsdam, July 12, 2007. Worldwide there is great consumer interest in Mobile TV. This is shown by the existing mobile broadcasting services in Southkorea, Japan and Italy as well as by numerous Mobile TV trials all over the world. Mobile TV’s revenue potential is even greater than that of other mobile content offerings like music or games. Mobile TV is set to become an important part of media industries with high revenues in the future.


Nevertheless, there are a number of hurdles to clear before a wide-scale rollout can take place. The European Forum for Mobile TV 2007 addresses the international development of Mobile TV today and in the future. Because of a very successful start last year the conference will be held for the second time in the German capital, on 30 August. The forum is one part of the conference week Medienwoche Berlin-Brandenburg, including ten days of top-class media conferences, such as the IFA 2007 - the world's largest consumer electronics trade fair. The Medienwoche is one of the leading media industry events in Germany and Europe.


Europe’s top opinion-makers and CEOs of regulatory authorities, of the telecommunications industry as well as content producers from ten European countries will partici-pate at the first European forum for Mobile TV and discuss today’s developments and the strategies for the future. The schedule for the one-day conference in Berlin will include speeches and round-table discussions in three main sections: on regulative and legal aspects, on chances for different business models and the specific requirements of mobile content.
