Video calls coming to Symbian Series 60
Responding to increasing market demand for mass-market 3G handsets, PacketVideo Corporation announced the availability of two-way video software for the Nokia Series 60 smartphone platform. PacketVideo's software enables users to make person-to-person calls showing live video images of both callers on the screens of their phones.

"Person-to-person communication has always been the number one use for mobile phones," said Dr. James Brailean, Ph.D., PacketVideo CEO. "Now we're combining the increased effectiveness and emotional impact of video communication with the utility and convenience consumers enjoy with their Nokia mobile phones. Handsets featuring PacketVideo software should provide a huge boost to 3G video telephony services for operators everywhere."

Brailean went on to say, "Video telephony is a defining service for 3G networks. The increased traffic and revenues from videophone users is a major reason why mobile operators invested in 3G licenses and infrastructure. Our two-way solution shows that video is no longer just for entertainment. Now it's a core part of communications."

PacketVideo's 2Way software is a 324M 3GPP-compliant solution for real-time two-way voice and video conversations and video conferencing. It is based on PacketVideo's fourth-generation multimedia platform, developed and deployed in millions of mobile handsets worldwide. Two-way video calling has been deployed in mobile networks in Japan, Korea, Italy and the United Kingdom, and is widely regarded as one of the signature services to be provided over 3G mobile networks.
