Consumer demand for continuous access to various types of content will continue to explode, which presents a considerable opportunity for service providers to enhance and brand content beyond the traditional TV set. Service providers need to develop multi-screen offerings quicker, and brand the experience.
To help them with these tasks, Motorola will showcase its futuristic connected home products at The Cable Show 2012. Showing how the company is enabling service providers to provide on the promise of the IP Connected Home of the Future, Motorola (News - Alert) will showcase a mix of smart software, network and in-home technologies in a Living Room setting (Booth #733).
“You can’t talk about the future of TV or the connected home without talking about Motorola. We invented digital TV, launched the world’s first wireless cable modem, and powered the first mass commercial launch of home automation in North America,” said Dan Moloney, president, Motorola Mobility. “Today, Motorola is once again at the forefront of the next big media revolution, creating the enabling technologies for tomorrow’s digital lifestyle.”
For providers looking to explore the True TV Everywhere, personalization, and connected home experiences, Motorola’s Home and Network Cloud technology is a huge help. Displaying a unique new video compression technology that facilitates realistic images across multiple screens, Motorola will also be hosting one of the first HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) demonstrations in North America, the company stated in a press release.
Recently, the company announced that it will display the entertainment discovery experience that will be debuting in North American homes later this year. DreamGallery allows customers to browse through hundreds of channels in seconds. No more searching, and searching ... and searching.
