Movial Debuts LTE-Ready Adaptive Video Calling App
Movial, a member of the GSMA’s (News - Alert) Voice over Long Term Evolution (VoLTE) initiative, has unveiled its new Movial Communicator LTE (News - Alert)-ready Adaptive Video Calling end-user application at the Mobile World Congress being held in Barcelona, Spain. It is designed for carriers and vendors to initiate video calling services that are capable of offering improved call quality based on end-user bandwidth, CPU speed, and camera and screen resolution intelligence.
The Movial Communicator is SIP/IMS client conforming to OMA, IETF, RCS and MMTel standards and supports Windows, MacOS, Linux, Symbian (News - Alert) S60 and Windows Mobile operating systems. It is claimed to be the basic component of the GSMA Rich Communication Suite program (RCS) and can offer capabilities such as 1-to-1 chat, group chat, video calling, instant sharing of images or video during a voice call, and file transfer.
Until now it is stated that changing environmental factors were being overlooked while making a video call over IP. The Movial (News - Alert) Communicator, with the new adaptive video calling, is capable of detecting each end user’s bandwidth, CPU, camera and screen resolution in order to optimize the quality of the video, presenting a crystal-clear user experience each and every time a video call is made.
The Adaptive Video Technology also enhances the user experience of the Movial Communicator and integrates the solution with intuitive design consisting of transparent in-call menus, animated transitions, an adaptive UI based on video resolution. End users can enjoy features such as HD voice and video calls, presence, network-based address book, SMS/MMS, file transfer, and rich conferencing over LTE and pre-LTE networks.
Victor Donselaar, CEO of Movial Applications, commented that Movial Communicator Adaptive Video Technology is the answer to smart, beautiful video calling, solving the problem of non-optimized video calls and removing the barrier to adoption by users who have been left less than impressed with a poor quality video calling experience. Operators can immediately take advantage of Movial’s new technology to deliver the best possible video services, increase incremental revenues and optimize their LTE networks already this year.
