Jan. 30, 2013
MOSCOW – 30th January 2013, at CSTB 2013 – Rostelecom subscribers who want to be able to watch TV from anywhere in the home can now install their own multi-room service without the need for an engineer to visit and without contending with complicated wires and cabling. цифрового ТВ customers can now order the Motorola VAP2400 wireless bridge via the Rostelecom call center and internet shop to make crystal-clear, cable-free video experiences a reality, anywhere in the house.
Russian consumers are avid TV watchers and, being familiar with traditional multi-room services, they have come to expect to be able to watch their favorite shows away from the main living room set. And it’s not just live TV they want to watch – they now expect to receive their full service from anywhere in the home, and that means VOD and DVR recorded content.
Motorola’s VAP2400 HD wireless video bridge has been designed to allow subscribers to do away with the untidy and unsightly wires that are commonplace in traditional multi-room settings and allows customers to install it themselves quickly and easily, without the need to wait in the house all day for an engineer. The ‘plug-and-play’ device works in conjunction with Motorola’s VIP1003 compact, superior, HDTV IP set-top box to stream high definition video over the Wi-Fi spectrum throughout the home to reach further and enable a better quality HD video viewing experience, even through thick walls.
Together, the VIP1003 and VAP2400 offer providers the opportunity to develop new, more advanced IP HDTV services as the set-top box supports a range of IPTV features such as VOD and the development of intuitive electronic program guides (“EPGs”). With the ability to provide next generation wireless video and the opportunity to develop compelling new services, providers can improve customer loyalty, reduce churn and increase revenues.
Sean Kitchingham, Senior Director Sales, Northern & Central Europe at Motorola’s Home Division, said: “Our customers are very discerning and have embraced the notion of being able to watch TV whenever and wherever they want to within the home but they don’t like the complexity associated with traditional multi-room systems. Installing the VAP2400 is quick, easy, gives our subscribers a superior HD viewing experience, everywhere in the home and is allowing us to develop new, more advanced services for our customers.”
We know that in order to keep customers coming back, services must be both easy to use and offer a great quality experience,” he continued, “This game-changing innovation manages to address both; allowing consumers to have a rewarding multi-room experiences without all the associated clutter and unnecessarily complicated installation.”
