PETALUMA, CALIF., November 5 /CNW/ - Dilithium, the leading supplier of
converged video solutions, announced a major new release of its market leading
3G Video Stack for handset and chipset manufacturers, OEMs and ODMs. This
latest release supports the recently standardized MONA (Media Oriented
Negotiation Acceleration or ITU-T H.324 Annex K) and WNSRP (Windowed Numbered
Simple Retransmission Protocol or ITU-T H.324 Annex A) technologies.
MONA is a set-up acceleration technique that significantly improves the
video customer experience by reducing the session setup time to around one
second, comparable to voice calls. Dilithium played a leading role in the
standardization of MONA at the ITU-T and 3GPP. The Dilithium video stack fully
supports all three MONA terminal classes for the best performance and
flexibility. Full support for WNSRP is also provided. WNSRP accelerates the
transport of command and control messages in video calls. The MONA and WNSRP
techniques are recommended by 3GPP for video calling, including video value
added services, and use Dilithium technologies at their core.
"MONA is a technology that significantly improves the customer experience
for person-to-person and person-to-machine video services. Subscribers will be
able to establish video sessions instantly when accessing applications such as
video push, portal, blogging, and Live TV," says Dr. Marwan Jabri, Founder and
Chief Technical Officer, Dilithium. "The General Availability of the MONA and
WNSRP enabled release follows successful trials that started in June this year
with many handset and chipset vendors around the world. MONA enabled handsets
will be in the hands of consumers in the next few months."
The Dilithium 3G Video Stack is the most established stack on the market.
The first shipment of the stack started in 1999, and it is now in more 3G
handsets brands and models than any other stack. The video stack supports all
industry leading audio and video codecs, including H.264, MPEG4-part 2, H.263
as well as AMR (narrow and wide band).
Dilithium is the global leader in converged video solutions for the
mobile, broadband and internet markets. Dilithium pioneered 3G video
communications and our technologies are deployed by the major network
operators, content owners, aggregators and equipment providers.
