Mobile Data Retrieval Improved With New Algorithm Developed By Penn State Research

This is a bit technical but it could indicated an improvement in the delivery of mobile TV and other content…if it is ever commercialised.
“Currently, mobile devices retrieve broadcast data similar to how TV viewers watch TV shows simultaneously broadcast-by switching channels,” said Prasenjit Mitra, assistant professor in the College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST). “But with our algorithm, cell-phone users don’t have to wait for fewer broadcast cycles to retrieve the data as the mobile device can pick up objects broadcast across parallel air channels.” This would make it quicker and consume less power.
