weComm, a specialist in interactive mobile data solutions, today announced that it has completed delivery of the MiniTV mobil 3G mobile TV application. The service, which is built on weComm's wave On-Demand Mobile Application Platform, delivers live broadcast from TV2 and ViaSat MTG along with news, information, programme guide and integrated video-on-demand streams.
weComm's wave platform is said to use a client-server infrastructure to deliver high-quality, interactive mobile data services optimized to all major mobile operating systems. The technology delivers content and applications to handsets on-demand, giving the richness and interactivity of an on-device application combined with the flexibility and freshness of an online service. By selecting weComm to enable the MiniTV mobil service, the multiple Norwegian broadcasters are claimed to be able to deliver branded context-driven media such as live news, weather, high-quality live and on-demand video streams, spotlight news and sports services, user generated comments and personalization.
"The aspiration from the start has been to select the best technology partner that would enable the multiple broadcasters to deliver their own consumer experience allowing us to compete on content rather than technology. weComm have met our expectations and delivered this service both efficiently and effectively. " said Tor-Einar Eriksen, Head of Business Development at TV 2.
Steven Tan, VP Business Solutions, weComm, said: "MiniTV is unique in the way that leading broadcasters are collaborating to launch a compelling mobile TV experience. weComm is proud to deliver the companion 3G service that offers consumers the ability to access multiple broadcast content from a single application."
