Motorola, Inc. will unveil its recent advances in delivering rich personal media experiences through live demonstrations at IBC 2008. The Motorola stand (D31, Hall 1) will offer visitors the opportunity to generate their own video content, and see it transformed and moved across various screens and devices.
"Video creation and consumption are booming. Consumers demand access to video on any device wherever they are as the boundaries between TV, PC and mobile blur," said Joe Cozzolino, corporate vice president and general manager, Motorola Home & Networks Mobility EMEA. "The 'always on' culture is redefining traditional programming and consumers want personalized schedules to fit their lifestyles. As a global leader in digital set tops, and with a rich history in video encoding and delivery of content on the move, Motorola is dedicated to enabling revenue generation applications and services that offer a rich personal media experience. We're excited to show this in action at IBC this year."
