NVIDIA Brings New Mobile Media And Gaming Experiences To Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE Network

LAS VEGAS and BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Jan. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NVIDIA and Verizon Wireless today announced that they will demonstrate at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) how mobile devices equipped with the NVIDIA® Tegra™ 2 mobile superchip can provide consumers with a wide range of new media and gaming capabilities when utilizing Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network.  

The companies will show how mobile devices can offer home-quality media and gaming content using the high-bandwidth, low-latency 4G LTE network.  Consumers will now be able to experience multiplayer gaming across different types of devices, ranging from Tegra 2-powered tablets to desktop PCs.

Tegra 2-powered tablets will also allow consumers to stream 1080p videos; view content, such as magazines; and discover and download applications through an advanced 3D user interface using 4G LTE's high-bandwidth streaming and real-time latency and the Tegra 2 processor.  Tegra 2 features a dual-core CPU, ultra low-power (ULP) NVIDIA GeForce® GPU and 1080p HD video processor.

These new capabilities build on the technology collaboration that NVIDIA and Verizon Wireless have developed over the past year.  The companies had previously demonstrated a full 1080p HD Internet experience on tablets over a pre-commercial LTE network.

"Last year, we showed the first 1080p video stream over LTE with NVIDIA," said Brian Higgins, executive director of LTE ecosystem development at Verizon Wireless.  "That was just the start.  Tegra is bringing never-before-seen experiences to mobile devices, and we're confident developers and ultimately consumers will see the benefits of our 4G LTE network."  

"Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE network provides the bandwidth to drive a rich trove of content to your mobile device," said Michael Rayfield, general manager of the mobile business at NVIDIA.  "Teaming this network with Tegra delivers the freedom to watch and play what you want, when you want."

The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network, launched in December 2010, is the fastest, most advanced 4G network in the United States, providing speeds up to 10 times faster than Verizon Wireless' 3G network.  Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network reaches one-third of all Americans, with plans to expand the network to the company's entire 3G coverage area over the next three years.

This content demonstration is a result of collaboration fostered at Verizon Wireless' LTE Innovation Center.  The LTE Innovation Center, established in 2008, provides an environment for diverse companies to work together to develop innovative products that leverage 4G LTE technology.
