DOCOMO Provides Digital Photo Frame Technology in Korea

NTT Docomo, one of the three biggest mobile operators in Japan, has announced today that it’s providing the technical means for a digital photo frame service, launched in late October in Korea by KT corporation and called Otayori Photo Service in Japan. This service allows users to e-mail photos from mobile phones, smartphones or PCs to a server, which then uploads the pictures to a chosen digital photo frame.

This service could also be launched in other countries eventually.

DOCOMO Provides Digital Photo Frame Technology to KT Corp. in Korea Partnerships

TOKYO, JAPAN, November 1, 2010 — NTT DOCOMO, INC. announced today that it is providing technology for a digital photo frame service, called Otayori Photo Service™ in Japan, which leading Korean telecom operator KT Corporation used to launch a similar service in the South Korean market on October 29.

The service enables users to e-mail photos from a mobile phone or PC to a server, which then transmits the photos to a recipient’s digital photo frame.

DOCOMO is licensing its server software and providing support for related technologies that KT used to localize the service for the Korean market.

DOCOMO also arranged a joint-procurement scheme under which KT purchases digital photo frames modified for the Korean market, from the same supplier used by DOCOMO. Joint purchasing is expected to increase the economies of scale, enabling both companies to lower procurement costs and KT to realize faster deliveries.

The collaboration between DOCOMO and KT is enabling them to share best practices and exchange information about consumer trends and preferences, which translates into more innovative product development and strengthened marketing for both companies. This is the latest in a series of new-business initiatives developed by DOCOMO and KT’s joint Business & Technology Cooperation Committee, which they formed in 2005.

DOCOMO also is exploring opportunities to launch its Otayori Photo Service in other overseas markets, aiming to create new revenue streams by stimulating the global demand for digital photo services.
