GCN tech brief
Reality Mobile LLC
of Herndon, Va., has released server software, called RealityVision
, for coordinating video and image streams from cellular phones. The software can organize streams and images from cellular phones and retransmit them to desktop computers or even other phones. It can also issue tasks to a phone, such as having that phone call another number.
If a connected phone can offer it GPS coordinates, the software can pinpoint the location of that phone on Google Earth. The current edition of the software works with the major commercial cellular carries and operates with the Palm operating system. A version for Microsoft Windows Mobile is expected soon, according to Dave Rensin, president and CEO of the company.
