Hi again, As requested by Jay, just let me introduce myself and our company. I'm the manager of mobiZe, a french company ( http://www.mobize.com ) specialized in services and tools for i-mode. We have already published 'mapaJ' as the first i-mode 'photoBlog' in Europe (nov 2003 on Bouygues Telecom portal) and now the first i-mode 'videoBlog'. We are using the amazing new NEC n400i mobile phone with our mapaJ service, that allows real time video publishing... over a GPRS network, at about 20/30 Kb/s rate, audio quality is good and video is not so bad. Our first try ( http://laval.hommesetprocess.com/mapaj.html ) was a real success ( with no technical problems, ouf ;-) ). Attendees were really amazed to see themselves on the web site, no more than 5 minutes after the interview :-) Happy to find this group and to get the occasion to discuss videoblogging matters :-) For sure, video is THE next killer app of the mobile industry.

(NEC n400i) just in Europe? can they upload to any site...or just a specialized site? are things just in the beta stage or are they ready for prime time? can they edit or just straight capture? youve really sparked interest... -- Jay Dedman Manhattan Neighborhood Network 537 West 59th NY NY 10019 212 757 2670 ext.312 http://www.mnn.org [View]

I-mode isn't available in Denmark, and I doubt they'll ever be. For the simple reason that we now have the so-called 3rd generation mobile network (a UMTS network). From what I can understand it is much like i-mode, but with more bandwidth. Videophoning streaming, video news and so on included in the package. The cheap phones are also huge and I can't justify spending so much on one of the smaller models so I haven't tried it out myself. I've played with a couple of the phones though. No editing directly on the phone. I think that stuff requires a lot of computer power.. - Andreas -- http://www.solitude.dk/ [View]

I think that stuff requires a lot of computer power.. generally big and ugly :-) keep in mind too that it is expensive. as you upload video from your phone you pay *much much* more per byte than sticking it on your webserver via ftp etc. In australia i think it is around AUD1.50 per video (USD.75). Not a lot but 2 a day adds up! cheers Adrian Miles ................................................................. hypertext.rmit || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/adrian interactive networked video || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog research blog || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/ [View]
