dotMobi Builds on Breakthough DeviceAtlas Mobile Development Tool

Industry-leading resource now includes device-aware video content adaptation data from Mobizoft

dotMobi, the company behind .mobi - the only ICANN-approved Internet address designed specifically for helping consumers find mobile content - today announced the inclusion of Mobizoft video content adaptation data into the award-winning DeviceAtlas, the definitive source of mobile handset information for mobile content developers.

As forecast by analysts MulitMedia Intelligence, alterative broadcast channels like mobile TV will be worth US$41 billion worldwide by 2011. To help content providers take advantage of that, Mobizoft, a provider of mobile Internet-enabling products, now contributes its device-level data to help DeviceAtlas users create content for the burgeoning mobile broadcast market.

"Adapting video content for mobiles has traditionally been difficult due to wide variations in device capabilities," said Paul Nerger, Vice President of Advanced Services and Applications, dotMobi. "I'm thrilled to see Mobizoft join the growing number of companies providing bulk data to DeviceAtlas. Mobizoft brings unique capabilities in regards to media streaming, which is at the cutting edge of the mobile web. DeviceAtlas users will benefit tremendously from Mobizoft's innovation."

As part of this agreement, Mobizoft will gain licensed access to the DeviceAtlas database, which will also improve the breadth and width of their own device database and capabilities.
"We are constantly working to improve the experience of developing mobile Web video broadcasting and advertising, which is often made difficult by the variety and capabilities of devices," said Maria Christensen, CEO of Sweden-based Mobizoft. "In working with dotMobi, we are able to provide DeviceAtlas users with information for creating rich mobile content for nearly every video-capable device on the planet."

In addition to Mobizoft, many other mobile operators, handset manufacturers and developers from around the world — including Nokia, Vodafone, Telecom Italia Mobile, Argogroup, Volantis and Zandan — are working with dotMobi to collate and continually refine data on handset attributes so that developers can create "device aware" content with the most up-to-date information available.

More information on DeviceAtlas — including the free web-based version and free, fully licensed version for developers — is available at http://deviceatlas.com on PCs and http://deviceatlas.mobi on mobiles.
