Products and services[edit]

VolleeX[edit]

Vollee's flagship technology, the VolleeX engine, acts as a bridge between a mobile phone and a Vollee server running a PC game or application. VolleeX converts video and audio output from the application into a proprietary streaming video format, using compression to minimize bandwidth requirements on 3G networks. At the same time, VolleeX takes user input from the mobile device (i.e. button presses), converts this to the appropriate form of input for the PC application (i.e. a mouse click), and streams it back to the server, allowing the user to interact with the application similarly to how one might do so on a PC. Vollee's streaming protocols attempt to minimize lag so as not to cause problems in fast-paced games.

The VolleeX engine also manipulates the game's 3D rendering in a hardware accelerated fashion and in accordance with game profiles created by Vollee's game designers to makes suitable to the target device.[2]

VolleeX's first public implementation was seen in May 2008 with a fully featured mobile client for Second Life, suitable for use on 3G networks.[3][4]

There is also a video of Vollee client playing World of Warcraft at this website http://kotaku.com/5228209/warcraft-on-an-iphone-but-is-it-coming-to-yours

Partnerships[edit]

Vollee has announced partnerships with video game publishers Activision Blizzard, Codemasters, and Encore Software. Their Second Life client was produced in partnership with Linden Lab.[5]
