MobileVision: Microsoft Windows Media 9 platform for mobile video
Jointly created by Microsoft, TWI Interactive and Vidiator Technology, the platform is available from TWIi and provides wireless operators and content providers with all the tools needed to easily deploy and operate a mobile video service.

MobileVision offers network operators, content and applications service providers, and rights owners a fully integrated content management, transcoding, streaming, billing and customer-care solution. MobileVision benefits from being optimized for Microsoft Windows Media 9 Series and for the industry-standard 3GPP formats and protocols by using Vidiator's adaptive transcoding and delivery technology that enables the distribution of mobile services to the widest range of handsets using either Windows or non-Windows operating systems.

It's interesting to note that the 3GPP content can be visualised in any compliant device, not only Windows Mobile devices.

"Consumers have come to expect access to compelling content from a number of different types of devices, whenever and wherever they want it," said Amir Majidimehr, corporate vice president of the Windows Digital Media Division at Microsoft. "This easy, seamless flow of digital content has long been Microsoft's vision, and we are pleased to work with leading industry partners such as TWIi and Vidiator to deliver this innovative solution."

"The demand for streaming of content will accelerate once consumers experience the MobileVision service," said Connie Wong, CEO of Vidiator Technology (US). "The VidiServer streaming solution has the ability to convert audio and video formats in Windows Media and those defined in the 3GPP specification, so that content can be tailored to match the capabilities and resources of various types of mobile devices. This adaptive streaming technology from Vidiator empowers MobileVision with the flexibility to offer its content in Windows Media format as well as other formats."

Features of the MobileVision solution include:

  • Video acquisition from one source or multiple sources
  • Presentation of content to end users or customers via custom-designed mobile video portals
  • Enhanced service management tools including billing, customer care and reporting, enabling organizations to provide a high-quality, consumer-driven service
  • Reporting for return on investment and measure of success criteria
  • Availability as a hosted service from TWIi
  • Support of multiple video formats, mobile handsets and 2.5G/3G network technologies
  • Easy integration with operator customer care and billing systems
  • Inclusion of optional turnkey content partners in sports and entertainment
  • Carrier-grade reliability, fault-tolerance and scalability for mission-critical media delivery

    As well as providing Windows Media and Microsoft .NET technology expertise, the Microsoft global telecommunications team will help introduce and deploy the solution to wireless operators.

    TWIi is providing the service infrastructure, integration expertise, and content management and billing platforms. Operators also can license from TWIi content in sport and entertainment as an optional additional service and bring that content in-house using in-house resources.

    Vidiator is providing carrier-grade media delivery technology integrated within the core of the platform. Vidiator's suite of products enables the encoding, decoding, transcoding and streaming of multiformat rich media to wireless devices. Vidiator's media delivery platform also enables 3-D rendering and animated wireless messaging.
