At the Mobile World Congress, LG demonstrated world’s first voice-to-video conversion over a LTE network, which allows users to switch between voice and video during an ongoing call.

At last year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC), LG successfully demonstrated Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and video calls. Prior to the introduction of LTE technology, high definition video calls on smartphones were not possible, as 3G networks were unable to handle the volume of data at the speeds required for high quality video images.
At MWC 2012, LG demonstrated the world’s first voice-to-video conversion over a LTE network. Based on LG’s proprietary technology, it allows users to switch between high quality voice and high resolution video call modes easily, during an ongoing telephone conversation. The LG’s LTE voice-to-video conversion process adheres to the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) Profile for Conversational Video Service, the industry standard established by the GSMA to govern the delivery of both video and voice data over LTE. The Korean electronics company said that it will launch LTE-capable smartphones compliant with Conversational Video Service later this year.
