Orange tries video over radio technology at Strathclyde
Steve Bush
Orange and the University of Strathclyde are working on video-over-the-air technology, to be available within 12 to 15 months.
“The university has been working for some time on very low bit rate video,” said Dr Richard Fryer of the university’s computer science department.
Fryer’s compression technology is a variant of vector quantisation. “We have simulated to up to eight frames per second of a 64 by 64 pixel image using only 4kbit/s,” he said. A standard GSM mobile cellular channel has a 9.6kbit/s data capacity.
