Video Sharing Trials Include Cingular
Feb 15, 2006, 5:18 AM by (staff)
The GSM Association announced the successful completion of a multi-carrier video sharing trial. Video sharing allows one user of a voice call to instantly send video to the other party. This uni-directional video is typically used to share a scene or an event with another person using the external camera. The video sharing trials began in Europe but were extended to include Asia and Cingular in North America. When launched, users with compatible handsets should be able to share videos with subscribers on their own network or on any other compatible network around the world. Every major GSM handset manufacturer has tested compatible phones in the trials.
