Intel CEO Demos Video Conferencing on a Smartphone

January 11, 2010 | Chris Payatagool


Intel CEO Paul Otellini previewed a forthcoming implementation of high-definition video conferencing running on a smartphone at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

During his keynote presentation focused on the future of computing, Otellini showed how advances in processor technologies would make it possible to run even the most demanding applications on smaller devices.

To achieve the demonstration, Intel partnered with Vidyo, a provider of high-definition video conferencing software that uses a multipoint architecture based on the scalable video coding extension to the H.264 standard running on the next generation Moorestown implementation of Intel's Atom processors. Moorestown is a system on a chip that incorporates a next-generation 45-nanometer Atom processor.

According to Vidyo CEO Ofer Shapiro, other vendors will embrace the new extension to the video conferencing standard. But unless they build a new architecture to take advantage of it, they won't be able to reduce the cost of legacy approaches to videoconferencing that require lots of processing at the server level and rich clients to compensate for the latency weaknesses of the Internet.
