Within the partnership, RealNetworks will be responsible for the platform management and CJI for sales, as part of an exclusive agreement in 13 different European nations, including Scandinavian countries, France and Spain.
The new partnership is based on the complementary technologies and capabilities offered by both CJI and RealNetworks. It enhances CJI’s strong position in the video transmission chain, from production to playout, as well as RealNetworks’ expertise in managed services.
“This new initiative is the first of its kind in Europe and represents a major step towards the true convergence of networks and applications,” says John Giamatteo, RealNetworks’ President of Technology Products & Solutions and International Operations.
“This agreement fits in with the development strategy of our Multimedia division and allows us to offer the most advanced and innovative playout to the content providers and to the telecoms operators,” says Michel Rénéric, Director of TDF Multimedia.
The video services platform supports all possible combinations of consumption and charging models, from subscription to pay-per-view. The services will be operable on a wide range of equipment and receivers – 3G and broadband to start with.
“Our studies indicate that, especially in countries where the average revenue per mobile user is low, the service approach is often preferred over the investment in equipment,” says Ulla Saari, International Marketing Manager at TDF Multimedia. “Video services are a well-known remedy for low mobile revenues – and this kind of neutral platform is usually welcomed, as it offers the operators a possibility to share costs but carries no conflict of interests,” Saari continues.
A commercial demo of the new ASP platform services will be available this February 2007 at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona (Spain) and will be operationally available from June 2007.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
