Image Delivery to a Babel of Handsets

(From the WWJ Team, April 29, 2004)

(You can only see the preview on the GLOCOM Platform)

Mobile image solution developer i-Broadcast appears to have the right profile - over 250 of them in fact. The company's server engine can recognize the onboard hardware & software profile of specific cell phones and deliver correctly formatted video and image content. On the celly end, a small Java applet displays the content thus avoiding the need for manually creating device-specific files. Why does this matter? Consider that Japan alone boasts over 250 types of mobile phones, and each needs a slightly different version of any given content. Looking to stream video to mobile as 3G takes off in Europe and Asia in 2004? Then you'll need something like i-Broadcast's solution.
