ABSTRACT
The article discusses the prospects for the inclusion of mobile television (TV) in cellular telephones within a decade's time. Advanced video compression standards and high-performance low-power advanced mobile graphic processing units will make mobile TV a must-have feature in next generation phones. However, it will take a lot of extremely difficult development work to transition the complex camera phone into a fully converged hybrid device combining TV set, set-top box, personal media player, digital camcorder, and videoconferencing suite. A noteworthy development is the improvement in compression ratios as digital video compression standards have evolved from MPEG-2 (DVD, terrestrial, and satellite digital TV) through MPEG-4 to H.264 (mobile TV).
