Multimedia Broadcasting, Inc., which has adopted the ISDB-Tmm standard for multimedia broadcasting, has been commissioned as the sole carriage operator providing nationwide multimedia broadcasting services for mobile devices scheduled to start following the termination of the analog broadcasting service in Japan. It is the direct result of active efforts by the ISDB-T Multimedia Forum, a group of about 80 companies organized to promote the ISDB-Tmm standard.

The ISDB-Tmm standard is a member of the ISDB-T family of digital terrestrial broadcasting technologies. As it is going to be put into commercial use in Japan, there is a growing hope for the adoption of the ISDB-Tmm standard in Latin America, where the ISDB-T format has been adopted, as well as in other parts of the world.
