Mobile Video Conference System

MVCS project intends to find a viable solution to multimedia convergence.

The activity presented in the project plan aims at introducing new multimedia services relevant in terms of technological innovation, both for companies and privates users.

The main objective of the initiative is to develop a mobile/fixed convergent solution which can connect in videoconference all types of mobile devices through a traditional internet-based video communication system.

Our innovative mobile solution allows the use of a PDA as a video-mobile phone, able to manage video-calls among PDAs, 3G terminals and fixed PCs. The research programme envisages the analysis of topics concerning the interoperability among different networks (CDMA and packet based) and transmission techniques of audio/video data flows among Wi-Fi and UMTS networks.

The advantages of using MVCS system:

  • Video-communication with anyone, anywhere, anytime. It is possible to organise on-line video-conferences with potential customers or business partners located all around the world, to manage instantaneously interactive multimedia meetings, to collaborate with partners sharing documents, applications, images and any other kind of multimedia files;
  • Knocking down of travel costs: MVCS is the fastest, cheapest and the most efficient method to build or to consolidate commercial relationships, to reduce costs and to avoid unforeseen inconveniences related to work transfers;
  • Social integration: MVCS allows the integration of disabled people into the work environment, offering them an efficient and dynamic tool useful for “distance working”. In this way, disabled people can efficiently collaborate and work from their own residences.

PMF Research is leader of the project and contributes to the technological activities development based on available transport networks to introduce new multimedia services useful either for corporations either for private users.
