Modern Cinema Group Inc. Announces Patent Application Filed for New Movie Distribution Model Over Mobile Networks(September 26, 2017)
Beverly Hills, California , Sept. 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Modern Cinema Group Inc. (OTCPK: MOCI) is proud to announce the filing of a novel patent application designed to solve problems related to the delivery of high-resolution movies, television and games over mobile networks. This patent application filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and also under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) provides the system design and architecture for the secure delivery of high-value media content over mobile networks in such a way as to exploit new opportunities in the international mobile media market.
As major studios and distribution partners are gearing-up to deliver high-resolution video content to all screens (Handsets, Tablets, PCs and TVs), the majority of mobile networks around the world are unprepared for the enormous increase in capacity which leads to congestion and service outages. Therefore, significant network upgrades must be made before video can be properly delivered and balanced according to the number of video users currently downloading streams. Even then, video streams may need to be delivered in a lower-resolution format in order to manage the demand.
The Modern Cinema Group approach provides for the delivery of high-resolution Multicast streams over cellular networks that are downloaded and stored on user’s mobile devices using bit rates as high as 6 megabits-per-second. Instead of using dedicated Unicast streams (that allocate one stream to each user), Multicast streams allow numerous users to receive and store a given stream (or popular media title), simultaneously. Users can then play these video titles in an “On Demand” fashion at a later time (referred to as pre-positioning). An additional benefit is the absence of any data charges (or limits) being assessed to the user.
The formal name for such a network is “LTE-Broadcasting” and the alternative name “Evolved Multimedia Broadcast Services” (eMBMS) is also familiar within the industry. Modern Cinema Group’s unique approach takes full advantage of LTE-Broadcasting capability, and then adds the necessary content security integrated with secure user applications (Apps) that are needed to ensure an excellent while secure user experience.
Ross Cooper, CEO of Modern Cinema Group says. “Although mobile networks deliver excellent video quality in first world countries, emerging market territories struggle with older mobile network technologies. In many cases, video quality is poor. In some cases, video is non-existent. People have learned video is available by way of Wifi, but not over the mobile network, which is used primarily for voice and text. The absence of high-resolution video in these territories is an enormous impediment to major studios and media companies looking to expand their reach to mobile handsets, tablets and new media devices of the future (such as VR headgear). This is why we at Modern Cinema Group are being pro-active in creating and implementing viable solutions for international mobile carriers.”
Although the deployment of 5G networks over the next few years will increase network capacity significantly, it is still unknown if these upgraded networks can handle video resolutions within the range of 4 to 6 megabits per second especially when millions of concurrent subscribers are watching high-resolution videos simultaneously. In addition, it’s also unknown what types of data charges and data limits will be assessed to 5G users. Using the LTE-Broadcast (or Multicast) approach will resolve the bulk of these problems, while significantly reducing spikes that often accompany high volumes of mobile video usage.
Note: YouTube videos are often in the range of 500k bit per second.
Modern Cinema Group took the unusual step of filing a PCT rather than a more traditional “Provisional” filing, as this will help speed the process of examination by the US Patent and Trademark Office.
Modern Cinema Group based in Beverly Hills, founded in San Diego has spent the last three years designing and patenting new business and technology models that allow both studios and distribution partners to integrate their systems to leverage each other’s natural advantages.
