conVISUAL is the World's First Provider to Facilitate Interoperability between SMS, Smart Messaging, EMS and MMS.
Oberhausen, Germany (ots) -
conVISUAL, the first Visual Messaging Service Provider, paves the way for true interoperability between mobile messaging technologies SMS, Smart Messaging, Enhanced Messaging Service (EMS) and Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) with its "Multimedia Message Broker" platform.
conVISUAL has the last word in the intensively discussed "format dilemma". Thanks to its "Multimedia Message Broker" (MMB) platform, it is the first provider to enable the direct conversion of multimedia messages between the most diverse mobile phone standards. Interoperability is the magic formula for the harmonious coexistence of text SMS, Smart Messaging, EMS and MMS.
Up to now, only those owning mobile phones with Nokia's proprietary Smart Messaging protocol or the new EMS industry standard could avail of the picture messages and ringtones on offer. As a result, friends and colleagues using the other mobile phone standard, respectively, missed out completely: The lack of interoperability between EMS and Smart Messaging devices meant that the exchange of images and melodies was impossible. By coming up with intelligent conversion using MMB, conVISUAL not only solves this dilemma, but also gives all other mobile phone users access to the formerly exclusive multimedia communication community - regardless of whether they have simple text SMS mobile phones or one of the latest MMS generation of devices. This means that all mobile phone users now have the freedom to actively enjoy multimedia applications based on existing and future standards.
By employing intelligent algorithms to automatically identify the user's device type, conVISUAL determines the display options that each particular device can support. Accordingly, the same content is delivered on a text SMS, Smart Messaging, EMS and, in future, MMS mobile phone with the optimum format for each user. Consequently, the issue of the mobile phone's technical specifications is no longer important.
conVISUAL has always specialised in creating messaging applications that provide interoperability. conVISUAL - listed by the Handelsblatt publishing group as one of the "German Hot 100" companies - was the first EMS service provider. As early as the GSM World Congress in February, conVISUAL demonstrated how simple SMS keywords could be used to send multimedia greetings to Smart Messaging or EMS devices.
conVISUAL - The Home of Visual Messaging Services. conVISUAL is the first Wireless Application Service Provider focused on the realization of Visual Messaging Services. Through an innovative product portfolio conVISUAL creates opportunities for network operators, service providers, ISPs and media companies to expand their businesses by leveraging the extraordinary potential of multimedia messaging services. conVISUAL's Multimedia Message Broker (MMB) is the intelligent platform for the creation, personalization, conversion and distribution of mobile multimedia messages. Using the MMB, conVISUAL operates numerous messaging applications, that are growing concurrently with the emerging multimedia facilities of mobile devices: The MMB supports all of today's common messaging standards, such as SMS, Smart Messaging, Enhanced Messaging Service (EMS) and WAP, as well as future GPRS and UMTS technologies such as the Multimedia Messaging Service. Based in Oberhausen in Germany, conVISUAL employs a talented and experienced team, concentrating highest industry excellence including Ericsson, Mannesmann Mobilfunk, Nokia and Theron Business Consulting.
