Diversification of mobile phone software standards continuing to increase

Dynetic Mobile Solutions recently completed an analysis of software used on more than 1000 current mobile phone types in 2006.  The results of this analysis showed that the number of different standards to be supported by mobile phones for content delivery is constantly increasing. Since the emergence of the WAP protocol standard in 1999 more than 7 new mobile Internet formats have been introduced to the market such as WML, xHTML MP, Vodafone Partner ML or cHTML. Today more than 16 different major browser products can be found on different phones. Also on the multimedia content front no universal content standard is recognizable. Today’s phones use more than 5 different video standards with approximately 70 different codecs depending on device manufacturer and operating system. The same applies to ringtones and music files with more than 20 different audio standards and hundreds of codecs to be supported.

dynetic's emoveo UAP software suite overcomes these problems by providing a universal mobile media transcoding gateway for any type of content to make the production, management, transcoding and optimized delivery of content easier and more effective for all content owners in the mobile space.
