RealNetworks and Sony Ericsson to deliver RealAudio and RealVideo to mobile phones
Sony Ericsson has plans to incorporate the RealPlayer including RealAudio and RealVideo as well as 3GPP, in multimedia capable Sony Ericsson phones.

"Across our product portfolio, Sony Ericsson is providing great application support and a second-to-none mobile multimedia experience for consumers. By incorporating the RealPlayer in our devices, we will further strengthen our offering to benefit both operators and consumers," said Rikko Sakaguchi, Senior Vice President, Product and Application Planning at Sony Ericsson. "Working with a range of the industry's preferred solutions including RealNetworks' for multimedia delivery, Sony Ericsson is helping to usher in new era of mobile multimedia content services -- enabling delivery of compelling video and audio services directly to consumers' phones."

"Sony Ericsson has been very successful in the feature-rich mobile phone market in Europe. By adding RealNetworks' technologies to those devices both companies will further the vision of ensuring consumers have the best multimedia experiences possible," said Ian Freed, vice president, Mobile Products and Services, RealNetworks, Inc.

Sony Ericsson will leverage the flexibility of RealNetworks' Helix Community, and the Helix DNA Client to bring RealPlayer-enabled mobile handsets to market. The Helix Community is a collaborative effort among RealNetworks, independent developers, and other companies to extend the Helix DNA platform, the first commercial-grade, multi-format platform for digital media creation, delivery and playback.

With the addition of Sony Ericsson, the RealPlayer is now shipping or is scheduled to ship with phones manufactured by 5 of the top 6 mobile handset manufacturers in the world. The RealPlayer for mobile devices is available on Linux, Openwave Phone Tools v7, Palm OS, Series 60, Symbian and Windows Mobile Pocket PC.

The RealNetwork' Helix mobile platform provides mobile operators, content providers and handset manufacturers the tools to create and launch mobile media delivery services. Based on RealNetworks' media server technology, the Helix mobile platform supports 3GPP, 3GPP2 and other standard formats.
