Mobile TV has recently received a lot of attention worldwide with the advances in technologies such as Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (DMB), Digital Video Broadcasting - Handheld (DVB-H) and MediaFLO. On the other hand 3DTV is a new approach to watching TV, introducing the third dimension for a more realistic and interactive experience. With the merge of these two technologies it will be possible to have 3DTV products and services based on portable platforms with switchable 2D/3D autostereoscopic displays. The paper presents the European Mobile3DTV project approach toward achieving such a merge. The project specifically addresses the mobile 3DTV delivery over DVB-H system. It develops a technology demonstration system comprising suitable stereo-video content-creation techniques; efficient, scalable and flexible stereo-video encoders with error resilience and error-concealment capabilities, tailored for robust transmission over DVB-H; and also the corresponding stereo-video decoders and players working on a portable terminal device equipped with an autostereoscopic display.
