Monsoon HAVA Mobile Player for S60
Wanna go roaming with your favorite TV shows? Monsoon Multimedia, a digital video solutions provider, promises help. Today, it announced HAVA Mobile Player for S60, a TV place-shifting video-streaming solution for S60 3rd edition on Symbian OS. The HAVA Mobile Player gives HAVA owners the ability to watch and control all of their home television channels and services from anywhere in the world on a mobile device.
What will it deliver to the mobile TV consumers? The HAVA Mobile Player for S60 was designed for seamless integration with Nokia’s unique two-way slider multimedia devices allowing viewers to toggle between portrait and full-screen landscape mode. Control of the TV viewing experience comes from both channel entries and volume control via the device’s physical keys and all other set-top box functions with the application’s onscreen interface. This way, users can watch live TV, pause, rewind, skip, schedule at-home DVR recordings, and control their home TV watching from a world away, just as if they were in front of their TV in their living room.
The HAVA Mobile Player for S60 leverages high-speed 3G and HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) cellular networks. It’s a Symbian S60 optimized version of the HAVA Player software that Monsoon also provides for PCs and other mobile devices. It enables users to view their home TV simultaneously on multiple PCs in the home network and on network-connected mobile devices, including S60 smartphones and Nokia Internet tablets, at home or anywhere in the world.
The HAVA Mobile Player for S60 beta will be available by the end of June 2008 and will come as a free download for HAVA owners in Q3 2008.
