Real media services on Motorola phones

The mobile version of the RealOne Player, with support for 3GPP and 3GPP2 media formats, RealAudio® and RealVideo®, should be available in Motorola devices in the first half of 2004.

The companies will work with leading mobile operators to enable delivery of premium live and on-demand streaming audio and video services to mobile consumers throughout the globe. Also through HelloMoto (http://www.hellomoto.com/), Motorola will distribute RealNetworks’ award-winning RealOne Player for the desktop as well as the company’s leading content services, including: RealOne RHAPSODY, RealOne SuperPass and RealOne GamePass. HelloMoto allows consumers to download games, ringtones, applications and content to enhance their mobile experience.

“Motorola is committed to delivering the most innovative, feature-rich mobile experiences in the world and RealNetworks’ multimedia products and services are a great complement to allow us to deliver those experiences,” said Ruchi Mangalik, director of software portfolio, Motorola Personal Communications Sector. “Working with RealNetworks, mobile operators and other partners, we are enabling consumers to gain instant access to breaking news, the latest sports highlights, and their favorite music and entertainment, while on the go.”

“Motorola has long been a global leader in the mobile market by building high-quality products, an approach that fits perfectly with RealNetworks’ industry defining multimedia products and services,” said Ian Freed, vice president, Mobile Products and Services, RealNetworks, Inc. “This is an exciting time to be working with an innovative leader like Motorola, as we are seeing ever-increasing demand to put the power of digital multimedia into the hands of consumers.”

Motorola will leverage the flexibility of RealNetworks’ Helix client source code to quickly and efficiently bring RealOne Player-enabled mobile handsets to market via the Helix Community (http://www.helixcommunity.org/). The Helix Community is a collaborative effort among RealNetworks, independent developers, and leading companies to extend the Helix DNA
