Real, Ericsson Team on Mobile Media: RealNetworks has struck a deal with wireless technology provider Ericsson to power the delivery of digital media onto mobile devices. Ericsson will combine RNWK’s Helix Universal Server with its new content delivery system, called the Ericsson Content Delivery Solution (ECDS), which will support the playback of multi-media files encoded in Real format, and in industry standards MPEG-4 and 3GPP (third-generation partnership project).

RealNetworks already has a partnership with No. 1 cell phone maker Nokia, which uses RealOne jukebox in its handsets and integrates Helix platform into technology it sells to other wireless carriers.

In related news, Real has appointed Ian Freed to VP of its Mobile Products and Services division. In this role, Ian will “direct business, marketing, and product development for RealNetworks’ mobile products and services”.
