At this year's Consumer Electronics Show, Motorola
Mobility is making the Smart Home simple - with the
introduction of the Connected Home Gateway.
Connected Home Gateway
Motorola's new Connected Home Gateway handles the
complexity of today's home networks as well as the
traditional obstacles of service installation and
maintenance. According to Motorola, with just the push
of a button, the devices in the home can be paired
wirelessly and connected to the cloud for remote
management on a host of devices. And connected home
services can be added, managed and troubleshot on the
This is achieved with a 1.2 GHz processor running
Motorola's open 4Home software platform, which supports
and abstracts a host of standards and protocols, hiding
the complexity of multiple disparate devices on the
home network. It also allows consumers to access their
homes remotely, from a smartphone, tablet or PC. And a
back-end architecture combined with Motorola's on-board
EDGE Service Assurance software lets service providers
deliver support and service activation in real-time.
The Evolution of Television
At CES 2012, Motorola will be also showcasing new
solutions that bring TV up to Internet speed: giving
you a streamlined way to enjoy a personalized TV
experience and relevant social features from your
smartphone, PC or tablet.
Motorola's Televation lets consumers watch live TV on
their tablets, anywhere in the home. Motorola claims
that Televation is the only solution that delivers a
full cable subscription onto the tablet, wirelessly.
And it's the only one that lets you watch whatever show
you want ? vs. simply streaming what's playing in the

Motorola's DCX3600 IP Video Gateway enables a connected
home environment by merging traditional broadcast TV
with new IP-based content and capabilities for
whole-home media distribution across multiple screens.
Users can view, record or play video on any networked
device, in any room.
At CES 2012, Motorola will be demonstrating the IP
Connected Home experience with the DCX3600

including an IP set-top, DROID RAZR by Motorola
smartphone, DROID XYBOARD by Motorola tablet and PS3
Motorola's DreamGallery makes the experience of finding
shows, movies and sports on TV as easy as on the
Internet. DreamGallery is cloud-based and designed in
HTML5, so service providers can deliver new, customized
and branded experiences nearly instantaneously - like
updating a Web page.
DreamGallery also will enable TV providers to deliver a
consistent on-screen experience across multiple
Service providers face a matrix of different adaptive
streaming formats, security technologies, and video
playback applications to reach a range of consumer
devices. Motorola's SecureMedia Encryptonite ONE HLS+
streamlines the entire content processing and delivery
process for multi-screen applications - while ensuring
the protection of digital rights and the security of
the content streams. This system complies with the
latest Hollywood studio secure-delivery specifications
for multi-screen applications.
SecureMedia's content protection works across
platforms, including IPTV, to secure content in all its
Social and Interactive TV
Motorola's SocialTV Companion Service puts a dashboard
of social applications at subscribers' fingertips, on
their smartphone or tablet, with content that's
customized to the programs they're watching. TV viewing
is augmented through interactive games, applications,
live chat, and social networking feeds presented on
these companion screens.
