[photopress:it_china_mobile_video.jpg,full,alignright]Stanton Technologies, a Malay company which is about to be listed on the Dubai Financial Exchange, has signed an agreement with two China state-owned agencies, China Potevio and China.com.cn, giving its IPTV solutions and content access to more than half a billion mobile users.
So what is an IPTV solution and why are we expected to instantly understand what it means?
Basically it means you can watch video clips on the right model of mobile phone which is important now but will be mega-important during the Beijing Olympics. (A thought might be given to the potential of traffic accidents as drivers keep one eye on the action and one on the road. You will notice in our illustration our model is NOT driving. She is merely leering at an advertisement of David Beckham in his briefs.)
Mervin Nevis, CEO of Stanton, said, ‘This is a landmark deal and the first of its kind where we are now working with two big partners to deliver digital video and audio content and other mobile content services to Chinese consumers.’
China.com.cn and China Teleformation Culture Media Co Ltd (CNTI) are units of China International Publishing Group and China Internet Information Centre.
Two weeks ago, Stanton signed an agreement with Time Broadband for Hollywood and Bollywood content which will see its entry into the content market as part of its expansion.
In a few weeks, Penang-based Stanton will have Dubai Investment Group (DIG) as its shareholder with about 20% equity. DIG also has a 40% stake in Time Broadband.
