Daily Wireless at the NAB

Daily Wireless has a great post up about the NAB. I pulled the Qualcomm/Modeo bits as well as a really cool graphic but there is alot more in the post so go read it.

From the post:

"The National Association of Broadcasters holds their big Las Vegas show this week featuring more than 100,000 attendees, 1,400 exhibitors, hundreds of conferences and press releases and Monday Highlights.

One new focus this year is mobility with "MoTV: Mobile, Video & TV Forum" on Tuesday and the "Web & Mobile Development Conference" on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Qualcomm will cover Las Vegas with MediaFLO. The demonstration will multicast of 16 channels of QVGA-quality video content, audio and data transmissions across the city using two high-powered FLO transmitters in the 700 Mhz band. FloForum includes Qualcomm, Samsung, LG, Thompson and others. Verizon has committed to MediaFLO for mobile tv.

Competitor Modeo (left), using the competing DVB-H standard (at 1.6 GHz), also has a live broadcast at the show. Their Mobile DTV Alliance includes Texas Instruments, Intel and others. Cingular may go with Modeo. Sprint has not (yet) made a committment. Maybe this week.

IPTV World looks at the competition from telecos, satellites and cable. SkyStream announced VOD and IPTV solutions, with support of Microsoft TV’s Picture-in-Picture (PiP) and Z-Band management software.
