Singapore -- At the Nokia Connection 2002 show in Singapore today, Nokia and Orca Interactive, a global market leader in developing applications for interactive TV, will use Orca's iTV application software to demonstrate streamed video services over Nokia broadband access and intelligent edge infrastructure. Demonstration participants will be able to see video services delivered to TV, PCs and the Nokia 9210i Communicator.
Nokia will demonstrate the cost-efficient delivery and dynamic bandwidth management necessary for full video-on-demand services via the Nokia D500 multiservice access platform and the Nokia ASR 2020 intelligent edge router. The service solution demonstrates how video content can be multicasted through the operator network, allowing multiple video streams to be delivered to end-user terminal devices such as TVs and PCs.
Using Orca application software, users of the Nokia 9210i Communicator will be able to view a series of movie trailers and choose the movie they would like to order via their video-on-demand service. The application will demonstrate how operators and service providers could offer multimedia services that take full advantage of both mobile and fixed broadband networks. End-users of the service will be able view movie trailers and then select a movie while on the move, requesting the movie of their choice to be delivered over the broadband fixed network at a particular time when they would be at home to view.
"It is important to demonstrate potential real life opportunities for creating increased revenue per user and to show how operators could offer converged services and take advantage of both mobile and broadband network investments," comments Mark Slater, VP Marketing & Sales, Nokia Broadband Systems. "By working with companies like Orca Interactive, and using Nokia's mobile and broadband solutions, Nokia is well positioned to offer solutions for converged services to all operators, both fixed and mobile."
"We are very pleased to be working on this demonstration with Nokia as we believe the combination of our application software solutions and Nokia's leadership in mobile and broadband networks, makes for a compelling offer to all operators wishing to increase revenues through converged service packages," Comments Yosi Glick, Vice President of Business Development, Orca Interactive.
