Qualcomm and Microsoft have announced a license agreement that will allow Qualcomm to use Windows Media technology in Qualcomm’s Qtv video decoder for mobile phones.
Using the technology, consumers will be able to play back and stream Windows Media Audio (WMA) and Windows Media Video (WMV) content on wireless devices integrated with the Qtv solution. Support for this capability in the Qtv solution will be available in the first quarter of calendar 2005, beginning with Qualcomm's MSM6250, MSM6500 and MSM6550 mobile station modem (MSM) wideband CDMA (WCDMA) and CDMA2000 1x EV-DO chipsets.
Qtv is a software video decoder that enables mobile devices to stream, download and play back multimedia content. The Qtv solution is part of the Launchpad suite of multimedia, connectivity, position location, user interface and removable storage functionality.
