Store tens of Bollywood movies on Mobile’s 2 GB SDcard

Always find your SD Card wanting for space?

If yes, then here’s the solution. MediaTek, a major supplier of chipsets for basic phones, has launched a new compression software which can compress a full length movie to approximately 150 MB without affecting video quality much. Yes 700 MBs compressed to just 150 MB, a whopping 80 percent compression.

It also offers a clear improvement on the image and sound quality of compressed files during playback

Technology involved:

The technology involved is the Mobile Theatre, available on MediaTek's MT6252c platform, which is already being employed by major Indian handset makers like Micromax, Lava, Intex and Spice. Very soon the software will be included in the handsets from these brands very soon.

The Mobile Theatre software will also be available on the MediaTek MT6255 and MT6256 platforms, and phones running on these platforms will hit the market soon; solving the problem of video or audio files taking up excessive memory space in handset devices.

The all new software runs both MPEG-4 and H.264, along with some other popular digital video/audio coding formats. It converts the video into 3GP format, which is supported by all major phones. Compressed videos can be shared and played on any mobile.

Mobile Theater software claims to optimize subtitle crispness and sound quality parameters to ensure that compressed video/audio files retain high quality. The software also supports 3D content, which can be viewed using blue-red 3D glasses that cost approximately Rs 15.

MediaTek has packaged Mobile Theater with advanced features that give feature phone users more added value at no added cost.
