HELSINKI -- Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. Ltd. (Panasonic) and Nokia today announced their agreement of cooperation for exchanging data and content between mobile terminals and home electronics devices. The collaboration intends to bridge various technologies and provide interconnectivity that will enable new services. These services will include, for example, remote viewing via a mobile terminal, connecting AV (Audio Visual) equipment with mobile phones and the use of a mobile device for remote control of home electronics devices. The companies will focus on a number of key technologies and specifications designed to enhance interconnection of devices, transfer of content and application interoperability. The collaboration covers technical areas such as MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service), which enables the exchange and viewing of images, audio, video and text in mobile terminals and in future home electronics devices. In order to facilitate seamless application interoperability between the home and mobile domains, the companies will also work together to create common APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) of the Java(TM) technology for mobile terminals and consumer electronics devices. Device connection interface technologies for direct data exchange among mobile terminals and consumer electronics devices are also in the agenda of the cooperation. "Working together with Nokia gives us a great opportunity to leverage our long expertise in creating consumer electronic goods. Consumers will be able to enjoy new kinds of content and services by utilizing mobile phones together with, for example, Video/DVD recorders, TV's and other AV equipment, as well as network cameras etc. We believe that interoperable devices will be greatly appreciated by consumers," says Yoshiaki Kushiki, Managing Director in charge of multimedia and software technologies, Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. Matsushita Communication Industrial Co. Ltd. Nokia Corp.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
