Dilithium Networks is supplying its 3G-324M video telephony and conferencing protocol software to HTC, for use in this company's new Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone platform. Model details were not disclosed
HTC designs and manufactures handheld devices, including Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition and Windows Mobile Smartphone, for a diverse range of customers, including major mobile device brands, service providers, telecommunication operators and vertical market clients.
The agreement includes licensing of Dilithium Networks' 3G-324M video telephony application protocol stack software with Dilithium's new AnswerFast Plus technology. AnswerFast Plus reduces video call session setup times to less than 1 second. According to the company present 3G terminals typically take 5-8 seconds to completely establish the audio and video channels. Additional AnswerFast Plus benefits include high resiliency in noisy or poor coverage areas.
"We are pleased to work with HTC, the leader in Windows Mobile platform technology," said Lee Ellison Sr. Vice President of Global Sales and Support at Dilithium Networks. "Incorporating Dilithium Networks' AnswerFast Plus into HTC's 3G Windows Mobile [smartphone] will result in call setup times that are comparable to those of voice calls. This reduces wasted network overhead while at the same time significantly improving customer experience."
