Abstract

Mobile TV applications have gained a lot of interest in recent years. The ability to provide the user with a personal viewing experience as well as the flexibility to add new services have made this technology attractive for media companies and broadcasters around the world. In this chapter, we present a novel approach for mobile 3-D video and data services that extend the regular 2-D video service of the Terrestrial Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (T-DMB) system. We demonstrate the main concepts and features of our 3-D DMB approach and discuss our latest research on the efficient compression of stereoscopic 3-D imagery.
