Motorola Televation for Comcast AnyPlay

If you have to fight to watch your favorite program on the family television, we Motorolans feel your pain. And we have a solution: Motorola Televation.  

Globally, 69% of us are already watching TV on devices other than the television and (according to Kantar Worldpanel Comtech) more than 30 million Americans own a tablet. 

Our new Televation product lets you stream your full channel line-up to your tablet, live, over your home network so that you can watch it anywhere in your house. And, unlike other streaming devices, with Televation you don’t have to compete with the guys in the living room for what channel to play on your tablet. You’re not just watching what they’re watching on another screen; you are in control of your regular channels, whenever you want.

No wonder Televation was conferred Light Reading’s Leading Light Award and Communications Technology’s Platinum Award.

Comcast is beginning to roll out a new service based on Televation, called AnyPlay, in Denver and Nashville.

Find out more about the new Comcast AnyPlay service in the Comcast Voices blog post, “AnyPlay Brings Live TV to the Tablet.”  For more info on Televation, visit here.

Motorola Mobility Kicks-Off SCTE Cable-Tec Expo

Today, Motorola Mobility’s chairman and CEO Sanjay Jha took the stage with Cox Communication’s president Pat Esser to kick off SCTE’s annual conference, Cable-TEC Expo in Atlanta, Ga.

Sanjay’s opening remarks focused on the converged experience and how Motorola Mobility is not just a set-top box company, but one that provides a customized user experience via software and services. He goes on to say that converging wireless and home services are a “bucking bronco” and that it changes every three months, creating new opportunities for cable providers.

Sanjay also mentioned five times more people are watching content on mobile devices than a year ago. He continues stating that looking forward, personal devices will become increasingly important to consumers, and consumers will expect more computing power.

 According to SCTE president and CEO Mark Dzuban, overall registration for the show is higher than last year and operators are now sending more of their decision makers to attend.  More updates from the show to come soon!

Belgians Enjoy Greater Entertainment & Home Security Capabilities with IPv6

Motorola Mobility and Telenet, a leading provider of media and telecommunication services in Belgium, have combined forces to offer consumers greater entertainment and home security capabilities. 

With their advancement to IPv6 features using Motorola’s technology and Telenet’s network, operators can offer expanded IP services to a growing number of consumer devices including smartphones, tablets; Internet-enabled gaming consoles and TVs, and home security and monitoring applications.  Consumers can now lock their front door from a smartphone, or enjoy expanded entertainment options on a tablet.   As IPv4 addresses are quickly running out it is important for operators to be able to implement IPv6 to expand their IP services capabilities.

Specifically, Motorola and Telenet have successfully tested and evaluated the first phase of the IPv6 features of Motorola’s BSR 64000 Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS).  The tests demonstrated the IPv6 capabilities of the Motorola BSR 64000, which allows Telenet to deliver its residential broadband and video services across Belgium.  Check out some of the coverage from our announcement to learn more!
