TV technology company Motive Television has launched Video2Go, a new software offering that it says provides broadcasters and pay TV operators with a low-cost way of delivering services to iPads and other devices.
Video2Go delivers pre-prepared content to set-top boxes or other devices in the home, which can then be transferred, initially to iPads, via a ‘home cloud’ environment, with no need for transcoding within the set-top. Video2Go can be bought as a standalone product or as a complement to Motive’s existing TV Anytime technology, which enables broadcasters to deliver on-demand services via one-way networks.
Len Fertig, CEO of Motive, said that Video2Go would enable broadcasters and operators to stream or download recorded content to iPads via an app. Motive already provides TV Anywhere, a software platform that delivers content to other screens but which requires greater processing power in the set-top.
