Today, XM had a patent application published for a "System and method for sending and receiving images via wireless audio channels". The application applies not only to satellite radio but to all digital radio including HD Radio and Digital AM. It is not related to real time video. It appears that still images are captured from digital cameras or video recorders or other sources and encoded into the audio stream as 120 X 120 to 176 X 220 pixel images. The images are synchronized to the relevant audio to create a picture show.
The only question is, "What took you so long?" It seems like an obvious application and we thought it would have been done on the latest generation of the Stilleto.
