Motorola announced Monday that its DreamGallery technology is now available on an expanded range of devices—thanks to new virtualization technology.
It now uses virtualized cloud-rendering to make TV experiences as rich and easy as surfing the Web—on a variety of devices, including low-cost, entry-level Motorola set-tops, says the company.
It traditionally requires set-tops capable of running an HTML5 browser, but this new virtual module renders HTML5 in the cloud, enabling service providers to offer advanced, dynamic and personalized entertainment experiences to more existing subscribers.
The new module is flexible, scalable and low-latency, providing a consistent and snappy user experience on existing Motorola set-tops that would not otherwise have the memory or processing power to deliver DreamGallery.
“DreamGallery is extending its multi-screen navigation and entertainment experience to millions of Motorola set-tops in subscriber homes today,” said John Burke, senior VP, Converged Solutions, Motorola Mobility, which is owned by Google.
Key advantages of the DreamGallery virtual module include:
DreamGallery technology for a dynamic, Internet-like TV experience on legacy devices
Consistent DreamGallery experience with all HTML5 browser-based devices (set-tops, tablets, smartphones and other connected devices)
Leverages the advanced HTML5 cloud rendering capabilities of ActiveVideo Networks’ CloudTV H5 platform for low-latency H.264 or MPEG2 delivery and seamless content navigation and consumption
DreamGallery is the user navigation component of Motorola’s Medios+ platform for multi-screen video distribution.
