A quick note about the Motorola KreaTV software I referenced yesterday. I spoke recently to Motorola’s Doug Means, general manager for the IP Video Solutions business, and discovered that the KreaTV software has actually been deployed now in North America. Previously it had only been seen abroad, but Motorola announced availability here back in June. Now it turns out that deployments started last month.
Broadly speaking, the KreaTV software is only aimed at tier-2 telecom customers deploying IPTV. (Motorola partners with Microsoft for the big carriers including AT&T.) It’s an open platform, meaning applications can come from virtually anywhere.
