The Japanese wireless operator NTT DoCoMo Inc and IBM Japan Ltd, part of the US-based IT company IBM, report that they have jointly developed new video transmission technologies for third-generation and future mobile services.
The two companies have been researching these technologies since they concluded a joint research agreement last December. The new systems search for video content excerpts according to keywords specified by mobile users and then stream the content to the users' mobile phones. For example a football star's name could be used to compile a video digest of scenes showing him making shots on goal even while the game is still in progress.
A special feature of the technologies is their capability to adjust transmissions according to changing conditions, such as temporary reception loss in tunnels, to ensure continuous transmission and reception.
DoCoMo and IBM Japan plan to introduce their technologies as new standards for the Internet. The two companies are also working to adapt the technologies for DoCoMo's FOMA 3G mobile service and other mobile communications services.
