DMB

(Digital Multimedia Broadcasting) The first mobile TV service. Developed in South Korea and introduced in 2005, DMB uses satellite transmission (S-DMB) and terrestrial towers (T-DMB). DMB has also been deployed in several European countries, including Germany, France and Norway. DMB is based on the international digital audio broadcasting standard (DAB), and DMB devices can receive DAB broadcasts (see DAB). See DTMB and mobile TV.
