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.

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...
Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.
When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...
Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.
Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.
Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur
What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...
