LG demonstrates seamless voice-to-videocall switch and streaming over LTE, girlfriends rejoice
BARCELONA, Feb. 28, 2012 – LG Electronics (LG) successfully demonstrated
the world’s first voice-to-video conversion over a LTE network at the
Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012. The demonstration, which was based on
LG’s proprietary technology, enabled users to switch back and forth
between high quality voice and high resolution video call modes during
an ongoing telephone conversation. Also demonstrated was a video sharing
service, which enables real-time sharing of videos over a LTE network,
as they are being recorded.
LG’s LTE voice-to-video conversion process adheres to the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) Profile for Conversational Video Service, the industry standard established by the GSMA to govern the delivery of both video and voice data over LTE. LG will launch LTE-capable smartphones compliant with Conversational Video Service later this year.
“LG will continue to lead in LTE by developing and introducing innovations that con-sumers can actually experience and benefit from,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The LTE sector is advancing at light speed and our voice-to-video conversion technology is in the best position to be adopted industry-wide.”
At last year’s MWC, LG successfully demonstrated Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and video calls. Prior to the introduction of LTE technology, high definition video calls on smartphones were not possible, as 3G networks were unable to handle the volume of data at the speeds required for high quality video images.
