Nextreaming Corporation, a leader in mobile multimedia solutions for mobile operators, handset manufacturers and content providers, announced today that Korea's Curitel Communications has successfully used Nextreaming technology to bring cutting edge video-on-demand (VOD) multimedia functionality to its 3G PH-K1000V handset.
Designed for KTF's FIMM* service which runs on Korea's 3G CDMA 1x EV-DO network, the PH-K1000V is crammed full of innovative features. The PH-K1000V's external TV and FM radio receiver allows handset users running FIMM to watch and record TV on the handset's two inch colour TFT display. Furthermore, users can download high quality video clips and live streaming video feeds, and can store up to 40 music tracks on its inbuilt MP3 player. The MPEG-4 camcorder allows up to five hours of continuous filming and recording to the PH-K1000V's one gigabit of internal memory while the 3.1-megapixel CMOS camera with its mechanical shutter, built-in flash and red-eye reduction takes some of the best pictures found on any camera phone.
"Utilising Nextreaming technology has enabled us to create the first 3G handset to feature both a 3.1 megapixel camera and video-on-demand," said Moon-Seob Song, President & CEO, Curitel Communications Inc. "The quality and functionality of Nextreaming's camcorder technology which we built into the PH-K1000V outperforms that of our competitors."
"Nextreaming technology enables handset producers to shorten development cycles within limited budgets and timeframes through the provision of high quality multimedia solutions," said Dr IL-TAEK LIM, CEO of Nextreaming. "Nextreaming has helped bring cutting edge functionality to the PH-K1000V so that users can not only watch and record TV on the handset, but also download high quality video clips, live streaming video and MP3. PH-K1000V users can also send high resolution pictures and movies to friends 3G handsets and PC's over MMS."
Nextreaming's services are recommended for handset manufactures that need to quickly and effortlessly build high quality 3GPP or MPEG multimedia functionality into handsets within controlled budgets. With its standard compliant and optimised software solutions, Nextreaming technology gives its mobile partners the power to run cutting edge multimedia content on their 3G mobile handsets.
