Alcatel-Lucent and Penn State to Develop Video Social Networking App

Alcatel-Lucent and Penn State University have agreed to jointly develop a mobile video social networking application. The joint work will focus on the development of a mobile phone interface that provides users with the ability to view their video files as a collage or multiple simultaneous video feeds similar to a wall of monitors seen in a TV studio, situation or control room.

Penn State will be the newest member of the Alcatel-Lucent University Innovations Program, which supports development of high-bandwidth applications for wireless (4G) and wireline broadband networks. Through this program, Alcatel-Lucent will support the development of new communications services that bring value to society: consumers, educational and non-profit institutions, and business. These applications and services will be based on creating innovations utilizing key emerging technologies and trends such as convergence, mobility, broadband and ultra-high bandwidth applications.http://www.alcatel-lucent.com
