Industry Expects DVB-H To Win Mobile TV Battle

According to this reporter the overall consensus at 3GSM was that DVB-H would win the mobile TV battle, and would be operational in time for the World Cup (go Aussies).
“DVB-H is going to be the big one. The prediction is it’s going to have 40-50 per cent of the market,” said Berardino Baratta, a general manager at Freescale Semiconductor. “The traditional operators are going to license access.” Terry Yen of Qualcomm said there was room for competing standards, while Gertjan Kaat, senior vice-president for mobile and personal at Philips Semiconductors, said: “DVB-H is by far supported by the biggest community, it has the highest support.”
I’m not sure whether the “market” refers to region, subscriber or revenue.
