According to the company, the platform's RF-based adaptive streaming capability empowers carriers and content owners to easily reach Apple, Android, Symbian, RIM and Windows Mobile users, and enhances the end-user experience by providing on-the-fly access to the latest online content in high-quality formats.
Vidio supports all industry-standard video file formats.
