Lyfe Communications Files Patent for Adaptive Transportation of Multimedia

SipTrunkingReport Contributor

Lyfe Communications has filed a core technology patent for adaptive transport of multimedia. Lyfe Communications, Inc. is a technology icon in the development of next-generation media services that successfully integrate TV, high-speed Internet and enhanced voice services.

To deliver the signal, all television services today require a dedicated network. Operators need to invest in building and operating two separate networks and backends – one for television signals and one for all data applications.

With the help of technology for adaptive transport of multimedia, the operators can run all of their services over the data network and the need to operate dual network and the expenses involved in running it is eliminated.

The television thus becomes just another device, another application running over the data network.

Greg Smith, chief executive officer at Lyfe Communications, believes turning television into an application service is analogous to what happened in telephony with the advent of Voice Over IP. He also emphasized the fact that earlier on we used to have a telephone network for voice calls and a separate data network for Internet and e-mail access and that most telephone calls happened over that one data network, regardless of whether the operator is a telephone company or a cable company.

Smith went on to add that nowadays, we have the technology to bring new adaptive Multimedia Transport Technology, allowing operators to deliver Television over unmanaged IP networks.

Lyfe Communication’s patent-pending innovations traditional digital television delivery and convert traditional digital television delivery to a 100-percent IP-based network and service operation. The technology will herald first truly “viewer driven” service. The result is dramatically lower cost of operation that offers new interactive capabilities and access to television programming any time, on any device, in any location.

In areas where full high-definition TV (HDTV) with video on demand service is too expensive to build and operate, this technology can prove very useful. The technology can help lower operating expenses and capital on major networks.

Lyfe Communication’s integrated services are currently available in 11 communities across Utah’s Wasatch Front. The Company will be adding its next-generation television into the 16 states, where it currently offers voice and data access.

It is all set to provide latest technology driven innovative and compelling media and communications services to residential customers and businesses.
