As IPTV Adoption Explodes Worldwide, Motorola Showcases IPTV Technologies and Solutions at TelcoTV 2007


TELCOTV – ATLANTA .– As IPTV demand continues to grow, Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT) will demonstrate its innovative IP video solutions portfolio, which includes MPEG-4 encoding equipment, optical access and connected home devices, such as advanced IP set tops and residential gateways, at this week’s TelcoTV show in Atlanta.

A leader in the IPTV (Internet Protocol television) industry, Motorola enables telecommunications companies around the world to deliver quality voice, ultra-broadband data and next generation video solutions to their consumers. In September, the company announced it had shipped 2 million IP set top boxes around the world.

“Through innovative technology development and a number of strategic acquisitions, we have strengthened our position as a leader in the IP video markets around the globe,” said Doug Means, Motorola corporate vice president and general manager, Home and Networks Mobility. “For the service provider wanting to deliver a range of video content and services into the home, Motorola offers a comprehensive spectrum of IPTV technologies and applications.”

Means will present the keynote address at TelcoTV 2007 on Thursday, Oct. 25 where he will discuss “Invisible Networks” and the movement of personalized content between devices. Craig Pasek, Senior Product Manager, Access Networks, Motorola, will participate on a Wednesday, Oct. 24 panel titled “Options and Opportunities for Video Delivery.” Additionally, Motorola will host a workshop prior to the opening of TelcoTV on Tuesday, Oct. 23, about the “Basics of IPTV and Beyond,” discussing video trends and technology like on-demand solutions, IP set tops, ultra-broadband, MPEG-4 encoding, content distribution and digital rights management.

Motorola (booth #701) will demonstrate the newly announced Motorola DSR-6000 series receivers, the first of a new generation of receiver-transcoders that allow networks to use both MPEG-4 AVC and MPEG-2 compression technologies. Building on the success of Motorola’s award-winning secure content delivery systems, the DSR-6000 series enhances network efficiency for both programmers and operators by reducing bandwidth requirements by up to 75 percent from traditional MPEG-2 delivery.

Tying the headend to the home is Motorola’s Gigabit Passive Optical Networking (GPON) solution. As high-definition and on-demand service channels and usage rates increase, Service Providers will need next generation access solutions that can deliver tens and hundreds of megabytes of ultra-broadband throughput to every subscriber.

Motorola will showcase its popular IPTV set tops, including the VIP 1216 and the VIP 1920 (Motorola’s KreaTV-enabled software – Motorola’s flexible Linux-based set top platform which enables the rapid development of rich, interactive user experiences in a range of set top implementations devices) and the VIP1216 (Microsoft-enabled software).

Motorola will present its CherryPicker ™solutions for MPEG-4 and MPEG2 AVC video processing software applications such as seamless splicing and graphical overlays. The CherryPicker solution delivers a comprehensive suite of digital video processing applications to optimize bandwidth and for targeted advertising and content.

Also being demonstrated at the event will be the recently announced Netopia® 2210 ADSL2/2+ Gateway. Designed to deliver cost-effective and reliable high-speed Internet access to single-PC residential subscribers, its competitive price, low weight, small size and ease of use contribute to a low cost of deployment, enabling carriers to expand into new low-end markets and helping to increase margins in existing market segments.

Motorola is the acknowledged leader in video network solutions, having deployed more than 2,500 digital headends in both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4. This leadership extends to IPTV headends and cable video networks. As a result, more programmers in North America deploy Motorola satellite video delivery network solutions than any other solution. Motorola is also a world leader in digital set tops, having shipped more than 60 million cable set tops and more than two million IPTV set tops.
