At the CeBIT Fifth Media announces the availabilty of a service that lets users webcast video from the Axia smartphone. Axia licenses the ComVu PocketCaster, which leverages AXIA’s onboard 1.3 Megapixel CMOS camera, and Freescale i.MX21 processor, to transmit real-time MPEG 4 video to ComVu’s automated server network. With ComVu’s PocketCaster, the AXIA A108 is an active live streaming transmission device, rather than solely a passive receiver of video content.
I think this is pretty cool. Enabling anybody to transmit live video to a large audience from anywhere. Question remains how much the service will cost.
