Access to Make a Mobile Application Framework Open Source

Access Co. plans to release to the open source community an application framework it developed as part of its upcoming mobile operating system, the Access Linux Platform (ALP). This has been designed specifically to meet the requirements of mobile phones and devices.

In addition to providing a set of services to install and manage applications, this application framework will be able to integrate communication between applications, enabling a seamless user experience for music, messaging and other advanced features. It is also designed to enhance application security to prevent unauthorized use of phone services or tampering with critical system data.

The application framework will be posted by Access before the end of this year on its web site.

Military-grade Video Enhancement for Mobile Phones

MotionDSP, an emerging leader in digital video enhancement, today announced the company’s first product, and specific details on its patented,  military-grade video enhancement technology which attempts to correct and enhance the poor quality of user-generated content caused by the limited optics and capabilities of mass-market devices such as mobile phones and digital cameras. Simply put, MotionDSP’s software is able to take the low quality images that many mobile phones, smartphones and PDAs take with their on-board cameras, and then make something much better out of the images.

MotionDSP’s technology recovers information from multiple frames to reconstruct a high-resolution video from the low-resolution source. The company’s first product, the Ikena System, allows Internet video sites and mobile carriers to enhance thousands of videos per day and aims to set a new standard of video quality for user-generated content.
