"MRecord for FOMA" changes the image of FOMA into the streaming file for PCs.


Line Media Research Co., Ltd (Development of software and hardware/Hamamatsu, Shizuoka/Ishiduki president) exhibited “MRecord for FOMA™” service which records the image taken by 3rd next-generation PDA “FOMA™”. This service changes into the image file which PC users can see, and performs streaming distribution.

FOMA™ can perform photography of an image simply by PDA and does not need a difficult setup. However, the taken image cannot perform preservation to external media, such as PC, and the data capacity that can be saved on a PDA body has restriction. In "MRecord for FOMA™" service, the original FOMA™ image record technology of our company is used. By converting the image of FOMA™ to a streaming file for PC users, the image of FOMA™ can be saved to external media. Furthermore, distribution is possible via a network towards PC user because a visitor prepares an image distribution server.
In the image streaming service "V live" which NTTDoCoMo Co., Ltd. offers, the distribution place is restricted with FOMA™, PDA, and PHS. However, it is also one of the charms that PC is in a distribution place with "MRecord for FOMA™" service. A possibility of a FOMA™ image that the use was restricted by this service spreads greatly and contents distribution beyond the conventional frames, such as animation distribution asked for immediacy, is realized. Our company is wishing that this service employs the possibility of the 3rd next generation PDA FOMA™ efficiently, and this is help to the FOMA™spread of future.
