Paris (ots/PRNewswire) -
- Proprietary Mobile Media Player and High-quality Flash Card
Combination Offers Secure Content-on-Card Delivery Method for
Advanced Wireless Devices
Kingston Technology Company, Inc. and Actimagine today announced
they are joining forces to deliver a secure, high-quality mobile
media solution, effectively allowing mobile phones with expansion
memory capabilities to view full-length feature films, TV programs,
music videos and other video content while preserving copyright
protection and preventing duplication of the viewing material.
A New Wave of Digital Entertainment
With the advent of advanced wireless devices released in greater
numbers domestically, more consumers are discovering the
entertainment value of viewing content on their multifunction
handsets. As this wave grows, motion picture, TV and multimedia
producers must find delivery methods to safely provide content for
mobile phones and secure Flash memory cards offer an ideal solution
regardless of the cards' distribution via wireless carriers, direct
to consumer, retail channels or in-store kiosks.
"In working with Actimagine, Kingston is addressing two of the
most important issues in viewing video content on mobile phones:
digital rights management and having a robust mobile media player to
let viewers enjoy watching their favorite movie directly from their
cell phone," said Keyla Velazquez, mobile media product manager,
Kingston(R). "With the powerful Actimagine solution, the content
delivery method is secure and mobile phone viewing is optimized
without overstressing the device's batteries. This opens the door to
a world of possibilities," continued Velazquez.
"Given the variety of cards currently used by handset makers for
mobile phone expansion memory, Actimagine required a partner who
could provide complete content-on-card duplication services on
numerous platforms. That's why we chose Kingston," said Yann Viot,
vice president, marketing, Actimagine. "Kingston offers an array of
mobile memory solutions, ranging from standard SD and MMCplus to
miniSD, microSD, and MMCmobile cards -- and all these Flash cards
come with a lifetime warranty," added Viot.
The mobile media player from Actimagine keeps copyrighted
materials safe from unscrupulous duplication and the advanced
technology allows full-length movies to be viewed on Flash memory
cards as small as 128 MB for TV-like 30fps full-screen high-quality
display on a mobile phone. On most Smartphones the end user can
experience TV-like video for more than six and a half hours without
recharging the device's battery.
Working with Actimagine, Kingston will be an authorized
content-on-card service provider, offering certified duplication and
other enhanced capabilities backed by Kingston's legendary product
quality and 24/7 technical support.
The combination of Actimagine's smart display software and
Kingston's OEM expertise in global memory manufacturing, testing,
packaging and logistics creates a valuable mobile media solution for
content providers such as studios, or other market segments,
interested in safely distributing media on reliable Flash memory
cards for mobile phones.
Product will be on display on Kingston's booth at the CTIA
Wireless Show, Las Vegas, NV, North Hall Booth #5236, from April 5th
