The Ten Deadly Sins of Mobile Video Calling

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

Person to person mobile video has been the stuff of science fiction for decades, with many attempts and failures in the past. The last year has seen a bunch of real products emerge - from Apple's Facetime to Skype video calling and a host of startups in between, all improving the opportunities for genuine realtime video communications on the move. But what has taken so long? Why is mobile video calling so hard? In this presentation, Jonathan Rosenberg, Skype's Chief Technology Strategist, will touch on the ten deadly sins of mobile video calling, and discuss the technology trends which have (or have not) arrived to address them. He'll also touch on Skype's experiences in delivering video and mobile video.
