Telecom New Zealand launches Video Message service
The Video Messaging service lets users record 15-30 seconds of “mobile movie” footage, including sound, with their mobile phone. This can be sent to others with a Telecom video phone, where it can be viewed instantly on their screen, or sent to the email addresses of friends and family anywhere in the world. If recipients have a text-capable phone, they will receive a link to a website where they can watch the video.

Telecom is currently offering the Sanyo 7400 (pictured), with a second video phone – the Samsung A680 – due to be launched in early January. All video capable phones are also capable of sending Photo Messages (MMS). The Sanyo 7400 is also Push-to-talk (PTT) capable, a service to be introduced next year.

Videos can be stored on the phone themselves and saved online alongside a customer’s photos in their Personal Online Gallery.

Video Messaging is free until the end of March 2005. From 1 April 2005, customers will be charged NZ$1.00 per recipient for each video message they send. It will still be free to receive a video message.

The company says that in 2005 customers with video capable phones will also be able to stream video clips directly to their mobile. A demo of the service including news and weather, music, entertainment, and sports footage is available now for customers who purchase a Sanyo 7400 mobile phone. The service is available on Telecom New Zealand's CDMA network.
