NTT closes in on 3G video streaming

NTT DoCoMo and PacketVideo have completed work on their jointly developed platform for streaming live video content over NTT DoCoMo's third-generation (3G) network.

The platform, called FOMA Live-Video Distribution Platform, is based on NTT DoCoMo's FOMA network, a Wideband Code Division Multiple Access-based 3G wireless service that started public trials at the end of May.

The platform, which uses MPEG4 technology, will not require users to install streaming media software in their wireless terminals.

NTT DoCoMo and PacketVideo have designed the platform to deliver streaming video not only to FOMA terminals but also to a range of PDAs using NTT DoCoMo's personal handyphone system network.

NTT DoCoMo has not specified which PDAs will be able to receive the new service.
