ONE Media, LLC to Design “Next Generation Broadcast Platform”
Broadcast and Industry Participation Embraced
Hunt Valley, MD, May 6, 2014: Mr. Tommy Eng, President of ONE Media, LLC (“ONE Media”) announced today the following.
ONE Media, led by Mr. Tommy Eng with the support of broadcasters, has been launched to create a Next Generation Broadcast Platform (NGBP) to deliver the ultimate user experience of wireless access to premium video content anytime, anywhere without a data cap.
Due to the shift of video viewing habits from traditional TV to mobile devices, a new broadcast platform is needed to provide for the convergence of broadcasting with wireless broadband services. Harmonizing television broadcasting with LTE-based mobile infrastructure and user devices will enable new business models for the broadcast industry to realize the full potential of broadcast spectrum, which has long been hamstrung by inadequate technical standards and antiquated business models.
ONE Media will create an Open Network Enabled broadcast/broadband converged Media platform which extends 3GPP LTE standards to accommodate existing high power/tall tower broadcast infrastructure and business models, and eliminate the technical limitations of a conventional mobile TV standard to penetrate mobile devices. Recognizing the myriad of broadcasting needs across diverse broadcast markets, the NGBP is designed to support a full range of services; from existing standalone “traditional broadcast” business models – to “interconnected cooperation” business models among/across multiple broadcasters – to the eventual cooperation between broadcasters and wireless operators.
