Dialogic to Demo Mobile Video Platform at CTIA
In response to the increased adoption of mobile video viewing on smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices, communication solutions provider Dialogic has recognized the demand for mobile video services early on with the advent of its mobile video technology offerings.
At CTIA (News - Alert) in New Orleans next week, Dialogic will be launching a mobile video communications service platform that offers video content streaming into a video conference across three screens and over endpoints like smart phones, tablets and computers.
Dialogic (News - Alert) will be giving a demonstration of its PowerMedia Software platform for the first time at CTIA in Meeting Room #211 on Tuesday, May 8th at 11:00 am. The mobile video demonstration will showcase smartphone and tablet devices connecting to a video conference over a live 4G/LTE (News - Alert) network. According to Dialogic, the streaming video element of PowerMedia Software readily lends itself to many social, business and vertical market-oriented applications.
"4G/LTE represents one of the 'last wireless miles' of broadband service enabling the delivery of richer IP communication services to mobile devices. It offers an opportunity for service providers to embrace innovation and position themselves to positively impact ARPU by enhancing the mobile experience for their customers," said Kevin Gould, vice president and general manager of Dialogic's Value Added Services and Cloud Enabling Group. "And the proliferation of smartphones, tablets and laptops using this network shows that consumers are ready and willing to increase their services spending on mobile video communications and applications."
The use of standards-based SIP application server and multimedia server software such as PowerMedia sets the stage for innovation in rich IP communications services to a wide variety of endpoints including laptops, iPhones and Android (News - Alert) smartphones, iPads and Android tablets using 4G/LTE networks and Wi-Fi networks, as well as traditional networked computer workstations using the public Internet.
"Carriers' video conferencing offerings have never really taken off, either because they required expensive dedicated endpoints or because they simply didn't offer the quality users expected in a paid service," said Jan Dawson, Chief Telecoms Analyst at Ovum (News - Alert). "Today's wired and mobile networks finally offer sufficient bandwidth to allow for high quality video conferencing, but the best efforts nature of the Internet has meant that over the top services struggle to deliver consistent high quality experiences, even when high bandwidth is available."
