LG Electronics successfully displayed the world’s first voice-to-video call switching over a LTE network at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012. The demonstration applied LG’s proprietary technology, it allows users to switch back and forth between high quality voice and high resolution video call modes during an ongoing conversation.
Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company said “LG will continue to lead in LTE by developing and introducing innovations that consumers can actually experience and benefit from, The LTE sector is advancing at light speed and our voice-to-video conversion technology is in the best position to be adopted industry-wide.”
LG successfully displayed Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and video calls at last year’s MWC. Without LTE technology, high definition video calls on smartphones were not possible, as 3G networks were unable to handle the volume of data at the speeds required for high quality video images.
