Posted: 04-Jan-2006 [Source: Crown Castle]

[Modeo to deliver media service comprised of live TV channels, audio channels and podcasting content over its Digital Video Broadcast - Handheld (DVB-H) network to a variety of mobile devices in the top 30 markets in the United States.]

Houston -- Crown Castle Mobile Media LLC has changed its name to Modeo(TM) LLC ("Modeo") and announced that it plans to deliver live mobile TV to the top 30 markets across the United States. Visitors at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week will get a preview of Modeo's service in demonstrations with several of the world's largest device manufacturers, including Motorola, Inc., and Nokia Corp.

Modeo, a subsidiary of Crown Castle International Corp., has unencumbered spectrum rights and unique expertise across wireless network, broadcast and content platform operations necessary to bring this innovative media service to market. During 2005, Modeo successfully piloted its DVB-H (Digital Video Broadcast - Handheld) mobile broadcast network in Pittsburgh. Modeo plans to launch the service commercially during 2006 in select major U.S. markets, including New York City. Modeo is currently working on a nationwide deployment of its network to the top 30 U.S. markets, with launches targeted throughout 2007.

Modeo is planning to offer a compelling package of live video and audio channels and be the world's first mobile broadcast network to support podcasting. Podcasting is a term used to describe the distribution of recorded audio or video programs over internet protocol networks like DVB-H. Modeo subscribers then will be able to download dozens of video podcasts and hundreds of audio podcasts each week directly to their mobile device. Video services are designed to be broadcast in digital TV quality at QVGA resolution at up to 30 frames per second, significantly exceeding the quality offered by first generation mobile video products.
