[Hantro, based in Oulu, Finland, is bringing its latest technologies to 3GSM along with its vision of the mobile phone as the "ubiquitous multimedia device." ]
Hantro develops the technology for enabling multimedia applications in resource limited environments such as battery operated mobile handsets. Hantro's vision sees the mobile phone becoming the ubiquitous multimedia device with high resolution camcorder functionality, wireless up-streaming of DVD quality video to your PC or TV screen and the ability to purchase and enjoy content with an immediacy that has never before been realised. Turning this vision into reality, Hantro announced today that they will be demonstrating the technology that makes it possible on their booth at 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona.
Taking centre stage on the booth will be Hantro's DVB-H CBMS compliant Mobile TV handset solution. Supporting H.264/AVC video and enhanced aacPlus (HE AAC v.2) audio, the modular architecture of the application allows for simple integration of third-party Electronic Service Guides and additional codec support such as Hantro's VC-1 decoder (codecs can be either software or hardware accelerated blocks). By isolating the core logic with thin wrapper layers the design also makes porting to device and operating systems quick and easy.
In addition to Mobile TV, visitors to the booth will also be able to see the performance benefits of hardware accelerated video coding as well as camcorder, streamer and player applications supporting MPEG-4, H.263, H.264/AVC and VC-1 video formats and AMR and aacPlus audio.
