HD-Hybrid: The combination of HD-delivered services as a primary distribution channel for information, with a cellular distribution backup. Information is simulcasted over HD and to a proxy application, so an end-user can still receive traffic information and other data services when outside of an HD-broadcast area. This hybrid service creates ubiquity of service and keep cellular IP costs at a minimum so that data charges only apply when outside of the broadcast network, as opposed to being ‘connected’ all the time.
