Motorola Makes TV Shows Mobile – From DVR to Mobile Phone and Back Again
Expanding on the Follow Me TV experience of room-to-room media sharing, Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) will demonstrate a new technology that can move recorded shows from a Motorola digital video recorder (DVR) set-top directly to a Motorola mobile device like the next-generation RAZR V3x. This new ability to move content can expand Motorola’s existing whole-home video platform to meet the video needs of consumers anywhere and everywhere.
A live demonstration of this exciting new feature will be on display at both the CTIA Wireless 2006 (5-7 April, Las Vegas Convention Center, Stand # 2606) and the 2006 National Show (9-11 April, Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Stand #1537).
The explosion of digital video technologies in recent years is leading the demand for ever-greater control over TV at home and on the go. Starting with a Motorola set-top, consumers can now create a multimedia network that sends content not only to other rooms in the home, but to mobile devices with storage-card capacity. In addition, Motorola mobile devices can be used to program a Motorola DVR remotely. No more worries about forgetting to record your favorite show – control your television wherever you are!
“By combining the reliability and clarity of Motorola video products with the style of Motorola cell phones, we can deliver a truly personalized television experience,” said John Burke, corporate vice president and general manager of digital video solutions at Motorola. “Consumers get the chance to enjoy seamless, mobile entertainment, and service providers get the opportunity to extend their reach beyond the home.”
The full Follow Me TV experience is enabled by Motorola DVR set-tops and the company’s OCAP® software solution. This software solution includes powerful tools designed to offer home media networking using the Multimedia over Cable Alliance (MoCA) standard.
