TeliaSonera and RealNetworks in deal to deliver multimedia content
Posted on 26-Jan-2004 21:45 | Filed under: News



RealNetworks and TeliaSonera, a telecommunications group in the Nordic and Baltic regions, announced that TeliaSonera has selected RealNetworks' Helix mobile platform to power streaming delivery of audio and video content to GPRS and 3G network mobile subscribers in Finland and Sweden.

"Video and audio streaming are key components in the emerging new mobile services. The Helix mobile platform itself is invisible for mobile users and content providers, but it enables TeliaSonera to create a new class of easy-to-use services," said Mr. Jussi Komonen, Development Manager for Streaming Technology with TeliaSonera Finland MediaLab.

RealNetworks' multi-format Helix Universal mobile solutions enable operators to deliver live and on-demand Internet audio and video content directly to consumers' mobile devices enabled with the RealPlayer for mobile or other multimedia-enabled applications. The Helix mobile platform, comprised of the Helix Universal mobile server and Helix Mobile Producer, provides TeliaSonera with the software foundation to deliver compelling multimedia content.

The platform will support both standard 3GPP compliant formats as well as RealAudio and RealVideo.

In 1995, working with RealNetworks, TeliaSonera pioneered Internet media services. The advanced and highly competitive Scandinavian market of today is expected to become the leading market for mobile video in Europe. TeliaSonera is set to offer its customers easy-to-use and high quality advanced services. With over 11 million mobile subscribers, TeliaSonera is the largest mobile operator in Sweden and Finland, the second largest operator in Norway, and the fourth largest operator in Denmark.
