Motorola Mobility is demonstrating how its cloud, network and home solutions are contributing to the evolution of TV, at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo. These technologies are part of Motorola's end-to-end platform for the connected home, covering how content is delivered, managed, secured and experienced across the entire range of consumer devices.
"Motorola is evolving the TV experience by innovating and integrating our technology from end to end," said Marwan Fawaz, executive vice president at Motorola Mobility. "At SCTE, we're showcasing solutions that address the key hurdles to widespread multi-screen adoption. We're delivering these solutions to service providers, which stand in the best position to make the multi-screen, connected lifestyle a reality...today."
Ever-evolving high-bandwidth activities – such as streaming HD, DVR and on-demand video on multiple devices – are creating a host of bandwidth management challenges. At this year's SCTE, Motorola is demonstrating its portfolio of ABR transcoding, bandwidth optimization and service technologies aimed at service providers' need to deliver the highest-quality video to consumers, quickly and cost-effectively.
As previously reported, Motorola is introducing the world's first multi-gigapixel (3Gp) transcoder, and also the first successful deployment of DOCSIS Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access (SCDMA) technology, with Cablevision Mexico.
Motorola also is demonstrating how new high-efficiency encoding (HEVC) maintains video quality while reducing bandwidth by 50%. Motorola also is demonstrating the potential of the new 4K ultra-high-definition HEVC encoding format.
Meanwhile, Motorola's network DVR (nDVR) technology offers true entertainment everywhere—by migrating DVR functionality into the network cloud to deliver content to consumers anytime, anyplace and on any screen.
Motorola is also announcing that it has successfully completed a number of deployments and field trials of its high-density, CCAP-compatible Universal Edge QAM (UEQAM), the APEX3000, which bridges the gap for the migration to IP video.
And finally, Motorola is announcing the T-Metro 8000 high-density and MPLS service aggregation platform in partnership with Telco Systems. The T-Metro 8000 addresses customer cloud connectivity challenges through a highly resilient, high-density cloud gateway and aggregator platform. Its modular design optimizes carrier resources and enables carriers to offer more competitive cloud-based services, business Ethernet and mobile backhaul to the edge, Motorola said.
