Motorola confirms two platforms for video streaming on its 3G products
Perhaps confirming that video is the killer application for 3G (after voice - the real killer application on telephony), Motorola and RealNetworks announced that Motorola will incorporate the RealOne Player in select Motorola handsets, with an initial focus on Linux-based handsets for the mass market consumer audience. The mobile version of the RealOne Player, with support for 3GPP and 3GPP2 media formats, RealAudio and RealVideo, should be available in Motorola devices in the first half of 2004.

Also related to these news, PacketVideo Corporation announced that PacketVideo's custom-built "mobile media" software will help power the new Motorola A920 handset. PacketVideo's mobile media technologies enable the delivery of business and consumer content as well as compelling new visual communications. Examples include financial news and online trading, security services/video email, sports highlights, movie trailers and tickets, and games.

For the Motorola A920, which combines the capabilities of a mobile phone, video and still camera, PDA, MP3 player and gaming device all in one handset, PacketVideo's technology helps power key video features and provide a truly differentiated offering for mobile operators and their subscribers. Specific capabilities include real-time 2 way video calls as well as capturing, receiving and displaying streamed or downloaded video, MMS messages and music.
