Pinnacle and PacketVideo deliver MPEG-4 to mobile devices

Pinnacle Systems have entered into a development partnership with PacketVideo to integrate standards-compliant MPEG-4 encoding capability into Pinnacle’s StreamFactory family of encoders.
The expanded offering enables StreamFactory to produce live and Video-on-Demand content for the commercial launch of mobilemedia services. PacketVideo’s MPEG-4 complements the RealNetworks, Microsoft Windows Media and optional Sorenson Media QuickTime for Windows formats available on StreamFactory.
“The MPEG-4 standard is quickly emerging as a compelling streaming video format for mobile media,” said Ron Nydam, Pinnacle Systems Broadband Business Manager. “By adding MPEG-4 encoding to StreamFactory, we are providing wireless service companies with a flexible, mixed-format, mission-critical encoding solution that meets both wired and wireless audio and video delivery requirements. We are pleased to partner with PacketVideo, a pioneer with in-depth understanding of the unique challenges presented by the delivery of media to mobile devices.”
StreamFactory products will implement support for MPEG-4 encoding in the same StreamFactory HTML interface whose flexibility, ease-of-use and remote management capability have made it popular with enterprise and carrier-class operations worldwide.
StreamFactory’s MultiStream functionality enables it to encode up to four simultaneous streams in any combination of MPEG-4, Real, Windows Media, and QuickTime formats.
Ed Knapp, PacketVideo Chief Technology Officer, said: "StreamFactory, when combined with PacketVideo’s pvServer, provides a robust content encoding and delivery solution that is scalable to increasing numbers of mobile users.”
MPEG-4/PacketVideo-enabled StreamFactory systems and upgrades for existing customers are available through Pinnacle’s worldwide network of Broadband Solutions resellers starting this July.
PacketVideo Corporation is a leading provider of carrier-class software that enables mobilemedia. PacketVideo’s standards-based software products enable the distribution of one and two-way video, high-quality audio, animation and rich graphics over wireless networks to mobile devices such as phones and personal digital assistants
