MediaTek launches audio-video compression software Mobile Theater

MUMBAI: MediaTek, a fabless semiconductor company for wireless communications and digital multimedia solutions, has announced the release of “Mobile Theater”, a video and audio compression software tailored specifically for handset users.


The new software runs both MPEG-4 and H.264, among other popular digital video/audio coding formats. With this feature support, digital or audio files can be easily stored up to 50 film clips on a 2GB T-card.


With MediaTek’s long experience in bringing optical storage and digital media to video compression technology, “Mobile Theater” optimises subtitle crispness and sound quality parameters to ensure that compressed video/audio files retain high fidelity. With “Mobile Theater”, not only has the problem of video or audio files taking up excessive memory space in handset devices been solved, it also offers a clear improvement on the image and sound quality of compressed files during playback.


MediaTek’s full range of handset solutions, including the MT6252, all run “Mobile Theater”, which means even more handset users can now enjoy high quality movies on the go.


According to the Indian research company Tavess’ Report, the mobile entertainment industry in India is witnessing growth and will reach $4.9 billion by 2015. Mobile entertainment has a huge potential in India and the current localisation of mobile entertainment content is driving the industry in the right direction, bringing in greater usability of content.


Mobile music will continue to dominate the mobile entertainment services landscape with significant growth
potential presented by mobile video and TV. With regard to mobile handset manufacturers, MediaTek’s “Mobile Theater” audio-video compression software can help them further enhance the competitiveness of their products in the Indian market, which is currently seeing the rapid growth of video and audio consumption on mobile handset devices.


MediaTek president Hsieh Ching-Jiang said, “As we work to enrich the mobile life worldwide, MediaTek continues to leverage our own innovative technology and long experience in the mobile handset market to create uniquely differentiated mobile platform solutions, giving users the ability to enjoy the advantages and excitement of cutting edge communications technology. As the world’s leading handset IC solutions provider, MediaTek has packaged “Mobile Theater” with advanced features that give feature phone users more added value, at no added cost.”


MediaTek Mobile Theater runs both MPEG-4 and H.264, among other popular digital coding formats; therefore, files compressed by “Mobile Theater” will play on almost any brand of feature phone. Mobile Theater also ensures that compressed files retain the high fidelity of the original, uncompressed file. During file compression, standard audio and video parameters have been optimised, giving users both AAC sound quality and crisp and clear subtitles, while also keeping file distortion to a minimum. In addition, Mobile Theater software also supports 2D/3D content switching.


The company said Indian handset manufacturers like Micromax, Spice and Karbonn, have embraced this technological innovation.
