Mobile DTV

ATSC is standardizing A/153 Mobile DTV. Will it succeed in US? Well I am not sure. Why would I watch a broadcast video, when I can watch video on demand on my iPhone over high speed 3GS network Mabbe I am the only not seeing the WoW factor..

Anyways I am excited about the choice of H.264 for video codec and AAC for audio codec. And the good news is there is no MPEG-2 Transport stream overhead. As you can see above (taken from ATSC A/153 standards documentation) it is an all IP based transport system. Isn't that amazing?
