Motorola Televation Streams Live TV to Connected Devices
Motorola Mobility just announced a new broadband device designed to share live TV across other connected IP devices. Called Motorola Televation, it uses a 1GHZ digital QAM tuner and CableCard to pull broadcast television out of coax outlets and transmit it as DRM-protected MPEG-2 to MPEG-4. Resolution and bit-rate is changed on the fly, based on capabilities of the viewing device and promises to always give a great picture. The aim, according to Motorola, is to let users “spend more time with loved ones (and) watch different programs in the same room.” In other words, this is “a new way to use your Motorola XOOM.
There’s no word on pricing or availability yet, but Motorola will be at the 2011 Cable Show in Chicago, IL. this week. We’re guess we’ll get additional details once the annual conference gets underway. Hopefully this becomes available for consumers to buy outright and not as part of a package deal with specific cable providers.
