Sprint adds Lightsurf Instant Imaging Platform to its 3G network
Posted: 25-Feb-2002 [Source: Sprint press release]

[The platform is designed to allow Sprint wireless customers to point, shoot and share images instantly with family and friends using new wireless devices that capture images. ]

Kansas City, MO -- Sprint's Third-Generation network, or 3G, will enable data services at peak speeds of 144 kilobits per second this year and up to 2 to 5 megabits per second within two years. The result will be a network that will dramatically enrich the whole wireless experience and provide capabilities that will allow users to conveniently take and send wireless photos.

To support these future imaging services, Sprint (NYSE: FON, PCS), which operates the largest all-digital, all-PCS nationwide network and is the fastest growing wireless carrier, today announced an agreement with LightSurf Technologies to deploy the LightSurf Visual Intelligence Platform (VIP). When launched, the platform is designed to allow Sprint wireless customers to easily point, shoot and share images instantly and conveniently with family and friends using new wireless devices that capture images.

LightSurf's Visual Intelligence Platform is a comprehensive suite of scalable, secure and reliable core-technology software components. These technology components provide an exchange of digital photos and multimedia messaging using any Internet-ready, graphics-capable system.

"Sprint is clearly looking to deploy useful innovations-- with new, easy-to-use technology that creates real value. That's been one of our guiding principles in developing Sprint's 3G network," said John Garcia, senior vice president of sales and distribution for Sprint's wireless division. "Sprint's relationship with LightSurf is a key component in the deployment of 3G wireless imaging. Look to Sprint to connect the LightSurf platform to our nationwide 3G network to support the best devices and most convenient wireless imaging applications."

"The tremendous demand we are seeing for our visual communications services on a worldwide basis is proof that a picture or an instant photo-message is indeed worth a thousand words," said Philippe Kahn, Chairman and CEO of LightSurf Technologies, Inc. "The world is beginning to communicate visually over wireless networks and we are proud to be partnering with Sprint to launch wireless imaging on its 3G network."

Sprint demonstrated live 3G wireless imaging at the games in Salt Lake City using its live Third-Generation Network in combination with a Ricoh RDC-i700 camera and Novatel Wireless, Inc. wireless CDMA PC Card. The demonstration is part of the Sprint Third Generation Experience, an educational mobile showcase that debuted at CES, featuring live and simulated 3G applications, devices and services that will be available following the nationwide launch of the Sprint Third Generation Network in mid 2002.
