LG Electronics has developed the push-to-view mobile phone, which enables multi-user video conferencing, the company said. Push-to-view, or PTV, is a development of the concept of push-to-talk phones that use walkie-talkie technology.
While current video conferencing technology only enables one-to-one image transmission, PTV takes video telephones one step further, allowing a user to send real-time moving images to more than one person at the same time. Recipients of the video can also join the video conferences.
LG said that it is getting ready to commercialize PTV services for top global mobile carriers that offer wideband code division multiple access, or WCDMA, service.
Marketing of the third-generation video conferencing phones will begin as early as July 2005. (JoongAng Daily)
