Feb 14, 20061 min

On2 Technologies, the company that makes the compression algorithms for Flash Video 8, is at the 3GSM World Congress show this week demonstrating its latest codecs for mobile video. The VP7 video compression technology (known as On2 TrueMobile Video) is being shown in Symbian’s booth. Targeted applications include videoconferencing, mobile TV and video ringtones (that’s right, not just plain 2004 audio ringtones, but VIDEO ringtones). On2 says the technology is already being used by Skype and in AOL’s newest IM client, Triton.
