RADVISION, a leading provider of video network infrastructure and developer tools for unified visual communications over IP, 3G, and emerging next-generation IMS networks, have announced that interactive video applications based on RADVISION’s SCOPIA Interactive Video Platform are being demonstrated along with Nortel’s WiMAX Solution at 3GSM.
The SCOPIA Interactive Video Platform, targeted for the operator and service provider, makes possible new and exciting wireless multimedia communication services, which combine different sources of video from wireless 3G Devices, WiMAX devices, PCs, surveillance cameras and streaming content network sources, such as pre-recorded and live broadcasts. The multiple video streams are presented in a single screen with dynamic text overlay, with easy navigation and control via the wireless device. Advanced media processing capabilities ensure enhanced video feature functionality, such as text overlay and picture in picture, as well as assuring service access from any wireline and wireless video enabled terminal.
“Nortel brings expertise and innovative solutions across all access technologies, and adds real value to RADVISION’s offering in this space,” said Dr. Amnon Gavish, RADVISION VP of Mobility and Service Provider Business Development. “The successful demonstration of RADVISION’s SCOPIA Interactive Video Platform with the WiMAX platform shows that together we can deliver value-added video services across multiple accesses. Applications that are offered on RADVISION’s Interactive Platform today include mobile videoconferencing, mobile communities and video chat, video-enabled contact centers, interactive video portals and ringback clip. Our commitment to open standards, including WiMAX and MMD/IMS, promises a smooth and highly interoperable migration for operators deploying our IMS-ready products.”
Nortel is providing the WiMAX network infrastructure along with a comprehensive WiMAX device ecosystem that simplifies and standardizes the way advanced services, including multimedia, are delivered to subscribers across the network.
The services to be shown at 3GSM World Congress demonstrate the SCOPIA Interactive Video Platform’s successful utilization of the high bandwidth provided on Nortel’s WiMAX platform, to deliver exciting new interactive video applications. Similar capabilities have also been demonstrated over Nortel’s 3G CDMA 1xEV-DO Revision A solution.
