HP solutions make mobile video more fun and easy to use
The three HP OpenCall Mobile Video Solutions are designed to enhance the mobile video experience by making the underlying services more lively and personalized:
* HP OpenCall Video Messaging enables users to create personalized video mailboxes and visually browse voice and video messages or blogs that have entertaining content. Users can send and reply to messages using downloaded animations and characters. The solution also enables mobile users to communicate over both mobile and broadband networks.
* HP OpenCall MMS Call Completion allows users to enhance delivery and receipt notification of voice messages with video or animation characters. Also, users don't need to dial in to retrieve messages; messages are delivered directly to the phone. Users on a 3G network can ensure delivery to recipients on older networks.
* HP OpenCall Video Blog enables operators to accelerate delivery of new video and voice services that include user-generated content, such as blogging, community portals, music and event promotion, and participation TV. It also enables mobile and broadband users to access these services via easy-to-use portals. HP provides a complete service creation environment.
