Motorola and Sentivision to provide set-tops for major Japanese IPTV rollout


MUMBAI: Motorola, Inc. has announced that Sentivision, a provider of media technologies and products for digital entertainment, has selected the Motorola VIP series IPTV set-top platform for providing video service to Japanese subscribers.

Sentivision becomes the first service provider outside of North America to deploy the Motorola VIP set-top, further establishing Motorola as a leading global provider of Telco TV solutions.

As a standards-based, open-architecture platform, the Motorola VIP series set-tops can be integrated with middleware from any provider.

Motorola provides a robust IPTV platform that brings high-definition TV (HDTV), video-on-demand (VOD), digital video recording (DVR), multi-room streaming, and other connected home applications into subscribers' homes.

"Our middleware integration was made simple by using Motorola's leading digital IP video platform. The open nature of the platform and the expertise brought together by combining Sentivision and Motorola is sure to result in a robust video offering to customers," said Sentivision CEO Yochi Akase.

"Motorola IPTV solution combined with Sentivision middleware will bring some of the most advanced video services available into the homes of Japanese customers. We are proud to add Sentivision to our IPTV ecosystem. Together, we can create a unique video entertainment service delivered through one of the most advanced digital set-top platforms available," said Motorola corporate vice president and Connected Home Solutions general manager Doug Means.

The Motorola VIP1200 series of IP-based set-tops gives service providers an advanced and flexible platform for delivering next-generation video content and services. Designed to meet operators' evolving business needs and consumers' desire for television choice, these set-tops leverage Motorola's decades of experience in video delivery and the company's proven expertise in emerging standards and new network architectures. The Motorola VIP1200 series supports industry-leading video codecs, digital rights management (DRM) solutions, and software from multiple middleware vendors.

The VIP1200J series includes the following set-top models with connectors and options specifically for the Japanese market:

VIP1200Japan, Single TV High Definition IP set-top
VIP1216Japan, Single TV High Definition IP set-top with integrated hard disk drive (HDD) for digital video recording (DVR)
