Motorola has passed another milestone: one million video-on-demand streams shipped globally. By my count, there are only two or three other companies who can claim that volume, which makes Motorola one of the top VOD server providers on the planet. The company’s customer list also seems to bear that out, with big-name MSOs on board including Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Charter, UPC, and Jiangsu in China.
Although Motorola’s on-demand portfolio is sometimes overshadowed by a focus on set-tops and modems, the VOD business has not only grown in volume, it’s also continued to evolve. In the last fourteen months, Motorola has introduced new hardware (the B-3 server) and a new Adaptive Media Management platform for optimizing storage and streaming resources within an on-demand network.
