FableFlow and Image Semantics have recently joined forces to offer the
market an innovative handset image manipulation application.
A camera phone user sends a picture to the service, and this is enhanced in
real time to reflect current events and feelings before being forwarded to
the recipient in a branded and personalized MMS with appropriate sound
added. Fun examples include:
•Devil’s horns superimposed on a headshot, with the caption “Horny Devil!”
•Valentines Day greeting where a heart-shaped frame is added around the
•Christmas card where a Father Christmas hat and beard is superimposed on
the person in the picture.
The service applies personalized templates based on service and
personalization criteria when formatting the receivers MMS. For instance,
the ‘Valentines service’ can add a ‘Happy Valentines’ slide with a happy
tune before the main slide with the heart shaped image around the picture
The service is simply to use for the end user. A processing request is
simply matched to the service code that was dialled ('1234' means for
example, ‘insert devil horns’). Alternatively, the processing can also be
specified by keywords in the message, such as ‘devil’.
The service is provided using the Image Semantics FunFaces image conversion
engine, and this is closely integrated with the FableFlow MMS receiving,
formatting and dispatching engine.
