Mobile/Handheld DTV is coming, or already deployed in some areas.  We will catch up with the current state of affairs in mobile television and discuss other aspects of consumer mobile and wireless technology.  The intent of this meeting is to touch on mobile services and delivery systems for both television and other applications (depending on available speakers).

The NAB is at the corner of 18th and N Streets NW, just south of Dupont Circule.  There is street and garage parking on many blocks in the vicinity--check signs and meters for hours!  The closest Metro stop is Dupont Circle (Red line, take South exit).  Farrigut West (Orange/Blue lines, take 17th street exit) is about 1/4 mile walk up 17th Street/Connecticut Ave.
