Nov. 04, 2009
HORSHAM, Pa – November 04, 2009 –Motorola Inc.’s (NYSE:MOT) Home and Networks Mobility business today announced a recent milestone in its drive to accelerate the delivery of personalized media experiences – with the shipment of more than one million on-demand video streams worldwide. The company’s success is predicated on the broadest, most flexible lineup of solid-state on-demand servers in the industry.
Motorola has aggressively pursued the video-on-demand (VOD) market, introducing new products and technologies for evolving networks. Today Motorola offers the B-1 and B-3 video servers, as well as intelligent content management software to optimize on-demand resources. The Motorola B-1, the world’s most widely deployed solid-state video server, was introduced in 2004, while Motorola launched the B-3 earlier this year as a solid-state server that leverages standards-based hardware. All of Motorola’s solutions leverage the company’s innovative Adaptive Media Management (AMM) framework for dynamically allocating resources across technologies, servers and the entire on-demand network. The Motorola CPS1000 software uses AMM to distribute content, assign streaming resources and effectively share content libraries between video servers.
“Reaching one million on-demand streams is a significant achievement, demonstrating Motorola’s continued success in delivering advanced services and driving new revenues for service providers” said Sean Welch, director, On Demand Video, Motorola Home and Networks Mobility. “The on-demand market is growing increasingly complex, and we are working with our customers every day to optimize their networks for larger content libraries and more advanced video applications. We see a huge role for on-demand offerings moving forward, and we’re committed to making the technology a successful growth engine for service providers.”
