GEO ports video streaming technology to Intel chips

Video and audio streaming company GEO Interactive has formed an agreement with Intel to port its A2 MPEG 4 video decoder technology onto the chip giant's StrongARM processor, which is used in mobile devices.
The deal emphasises the growing demand for Internet streaming products,and gives Israel-based GEO's Emblaze technology a significant boost in the streaming technology market.

Naftali Shani, chairman of GEO, said in a statement: "Intel's StrongARM products are one of the major platforms for mobile devices in the world. Porting to the StrongARM platform will give the Emblaze technology access to a very large portion of the mobile device market."

Dale Vile, senior analyst at Bloor Research, said this could put GEO in the running to become the de facto video standard for mobile devices.
StrongARM SA 1110 is already used in a wide range of mobile devices including Orange's video smart phone, Psion's Series 7 and Net Book, Compaq's iPaq pocket PC and Samsung's Any Web Phone.

The Japanese electronics giant will be the first company to install Geo's Emblaze A3 chip technology into its mobile handsets, which will enable two way video communication.

Any more candidates for a list of providers of software for streaming mobile 2-way video? (A discontinuous innovation, surely?)
