Motorola Mobility Helps Altibox Extend Video Services to any Room in the Home
HD video bridge from Motorola Mobility allows Altibox to roll out new video services to attract and retain customers
Oct. 31, 2011
STAVANGER, Norway – Oct, 31 2011 – Altibox customers will soon enjoy an enhanced viewing experience with the introduction of Motorola Mobility's VAP2400 wireless video bridge. Using the VAP2400, Altibox customers will be able to wirelessly share a full range of video services; taking interactive TV and video on demand to TVs and other IP-enabled devices across the home.
To date, the installation of multi-room video services has relied on unsightly wires running through the home, while wireless solutions have proved unreliable and expensive. Motorola’s VAP2400 streams high definition video over the Wi-Fi® spectrum throughout the home to reach further and enable a high quality video viewing experience, even through thick walls. Furthermore, the easy installation and set-up means Altibox customers can benefit from wireless video out of the box without having to wait for an installation engineer.
“At Altibox, we are focused on providing an extensive portfolio of easy to install video services that deliver an enhanced subscriber experience,” said Per-Andre Rykhus, vice president, marketing, sales & products, Altibox. “The Motorola VAP2400 will help us to deliver new services and enhancements, including wireless HD interactive TV and Video on Demand, to any room in the home.”
“The Motorola VAP2400 video bridge is the most innovative solution of its kind, and today’s announcement with Altibox demonstrates our focus on helping service providers differentiate their services and minimize subscriber churn,” said Steve McCaffery, vice president and general manager, Home business EMEA, Motorola Mobility. “We’re committed to delivering advanced, game-changing technology that changes the way video services are deployed in the home whilst allowing service providers like Altibox to differentiate themselves in an increasingly competitive market.”
The Motorola VAP2400 will be available to Altibox subscribers from Q4 2011.
