What’s the first thing you think of when you hear 4G LTE? Speed. It’s lightning fast, meaning downloads of songs take seconds and downloads of movies take minutes. However, 4G LTE is so much more than just speed.
The real story is how this technology is driving innovation and already changing how people interact with information and each other. In May, Verizon Wireless introduced two 4G LTE-centric applications that have been called “game changers” by industry watchers. It should come as no surprise that both harness the power of the Verizon 4G LTE network to improve a customer’s mobile video viewing experience.
In 2011, the number of people who accessed mobile video grew significantly. 4G LTE with its fast speeds and low latency – also known as “buffering” -- is driving video consumption higher. This increasing demand for video created a need for a simple way to search for content across the web and bring it to the forefront of 4G LTE devices.
Viewdini, an innovative mobile video portal that lets customers discover and view video content on their device was developed for this very purpose. Wireless customers already love to watch video on their devices; viewdini raises the whole experience to the next level.
Another example is the Color app. Mobile users have been able to use a version of Color to stream live video to friends since late last year. But it wasn’t until Color was optimized for Verizon Wireless 4G LTE devices and network in May that both audio AND video could be recorded and streamed live. This audio recording feature is available only to Verizon Wireless customers.
That’s just two small but relevant examples of how 4G LTE is changing how people communicate and consume information. We’re just scratching the service of possibilities. Can’t wait to see what’s next.
