Next Big Thing in Cell Phones? High-Quality, Streaming Video

November 4, 2004

Wireless technology developer Qualcomm said it plans to build a nationwide network for delivering video and audio on cell phones, according to a report this week in the San Diego Union-Tribune. A new subsidiary developing the project, MediaFLO USA, will deliver news, sports or entertainment programs over its new high-speed cell phone network to U.S. wireless companies that pay for the service beginning in 2006.So far, video on cell phones has been low-resolution with not much choice. Qualcomm´s technology is capable of sending video whose resolution is four times higher than that of typical cell phone video in the United States, the report said.The new MediaFLO network will be capable of carrying up to 100 channels, with as many as 15 of them streaming live video.
