Fring outs Dynamic Video Quality feature
Fring, the company that brought video calling to iOS, Android and some Symbian S60 smartphones, this weekend announced it has launched Dynamic Video Quality (DVQ) technology. This will optimize video bit and frame rates based on the network's bandwidth during a call instead of dropping the call altogether. A DVQ indicator symbol will pop up when network strength isn't at its best and call quality needs to be downgraded.
The DVQ technology is compatible with all 3G, 4G, WiMAX and Wi-Fi networks. Users need to download the DVQ-enabled apps from the App Store and Android market, with the feature not yet available for Symbian S60 handsets.
