Smith Micro Drives Innovation in Mobile Video Delivery, Receives Patents for 
Its VIDIO Platform 
Company Also Named by Aragon Research as "Hot Vendor in Mobile" 
ALISO VIEJO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/13 --   Smith Micro
Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a leading provider of wireless and
mobility solutions, today announced two of its patent applications
for video transcoding have been approved by the United States Patent
and Trademark Office. The patented technology, used in the company's
VIDIO(TM) platform, provides a highly efficient transcoding engine
that dramatically speeds up the process of converting one video
format to another. This allows for broad support of the wide variety
of mobile and stationary video players in use worldwide. VIDIO was
also featured recently as a "cutting-edge product" by Aragon
Research. 
"The ability to securely and reliably stream video to virtually any
mobile device provides new opportunities to monetize video content
for industries like hospitality, but it also offers usability
advantages to many other industries," said Doug Louie, senior
director of product marketing for Smith Micro. "Our VIDIO platform
can help field technicians diagnose and repair equipment failures
remotely, or give first responders a critical view of emergency
conditions before they arrive on the scene. Efficient mobile video
delivery benefits the entire mobile ecosystem, from network operators
to content providers to end users, and as our patents demonstrate,
Smith Micro provides unique, innovative technology in this area." 
About VIDIO
 VIDIO (US Patent No. 8,295,345 and US Patent No.
8,345,746) is the most comprehensive video delivery platform for
broadcasting both live and on-demand content to the Web or any
Web-enabled device, as well as set-top boxes. With VIDIO, rights-free
content can be streamed to more than 15,000 device models with no
client software required. For rights-managed content, VIDIO offers
integrated Digital Rights Management capabilities.  
Aragon Research recently named Smith Micro a 'Hot Vendor in Mobile
2013' for its VIDIO platform, highlighting the intelligent
transcoding features that can stream video to a wide range of devices
without the need for a device client. The report also described the
value of adaptive streaming in vertical industries like healthcare,
education and public safety applications. 
Industry-specific VIDIO use cases: 


 
--  Hospitality: According to a recent survey conducted by Smith Micro, 55
    percent of consumers are very likely to book a hotel due to
    availability of mobile content and services, up 12 percent from a 2012
    survey. The full results of Smith Micro's latest survey are available
    here: 2013 survey. The VIDIO platform allows hotel guests to enjoy a
    high-quality video experience anywhere on a hotel property, and
    creates new opportunities for the hospitality industry to monetize
    mobile content.
    
    
--  Public Safety: With limited network coverage and a fragmented mobile
    market, making closed-circuit video streams accessible to emergency
    first responders on mobile devices is challenging. The VIDIO delivery
    platform addresses these challenges, providing secure, live video
    streams from multiple sources to a wide range of devices, improving
    situational awareness for first responders prior to arriving on the
    scene of an emergency.
    
    
--  Utility/Field Service: Field service technicians often encounter
    situations where they need immediate technical insight from an expert,
    or just "another set of eyes" on a job or situation. The VIDIO
    platform enables field technicians to stream live video in real-time
    back to their colleagues to help troubleshoot and fix equipment
    remotely, saving valuable time and reducing costs associated with
    deploying additional resources onsite.
