***NOT FOR PUBLICATION OR BROADCAST UNTIL 00:00 GMT HRS 20 July 2001***
3G LAB, the Cambridge (UK)-based multimedia software developer for next generation mobile communications, today unveiled its Mobile Multimedia Studio to accelerate development of content rich mobile devices.
The 3G application development service is an essential service for network operators, application developers, content providers and even handset manufacturers enabling them to develop next generation mobile applications in a prototype 3G environment. The Mobile Multimedia Studio provides content providers and owners for example, broadcasters and publishers the opportunity to explore highly interactive, content rich mobile services ultimately accelerating the deployment and adoption of 3G.
The Mobile Multimedia Studio comprises a software suite, which 3G LAB has enhanced and licensed to run on a handset designed to emulate the look and feel of next generation mobile services. 3G LAB's multi-disciplined team of technical architects, graphic designers and web developers will work with customers to design and develop a tailored concept application allowing organisations to realise the opportunity, design, develop market test and brand their mobile content and services. The Mobile Multimedia studio enables network operators, device manufacturers and content providers to test the functionality, capabilities and design of their target applications and content on next generation mobiles.
Mobile service providers will prosper with interactive multimedia services that consistently captivate and stimulate users,¨ says Bob Last, Sales and Marketing Director of 3G LAB. But the challenge is, in reality, one for all organisations with a stake in the mobile world. Services provided to a mobile must delight the users, who will expect much more from their multimedia devices than they do today. In addition, the ability to personalise and brand unique mobile services will be essential to sustain a prominent position in the wireless market. The Mobile Multimedia Studio from 3G LAB is a key step towards realising the potential of 3G mobile communications.¨
