Motive Television’s patented* Television Anytime Anywhere™ platform of technology and services enables broadcasters and Pay TV operators to generate more revenue by better utilizing existing assets without having to invest in additional distribution infrastructure.
The Television Anytime Anywhere™ platform is composed by two main technologies – Television Anytime, which permits broadcasters to offer enhanced broadcasting services such as on-demand content without the need for the Internet, and Television Anywhere, that allows a viewer to interact, control and watch its Internet-connected home television from a computer, mobile phone, iPad or any other Internet connected device.
The Television Anytime technology platform enables delivery of non-linear Television services from the broadcasters’ premises along with normal linear programming. Viewers receive these non-linear TV services on their STBs (Set Top Boxes). The Television Anytime Datacast / PushVoD system allows a one-way transmission of content via DVB-T/S. By using the flexibility of available bandwidth, different transmission bit-rates may be used, during the day and night to store content on the STB hard disk.
The PushVoD functionality can also be delivered over the IP network to a hybrid STB. The platform allows recording of content on the STB hard disk from live TV – both scrambled and Free-To-Air (FTA) by sending start / stop recording commands without using expensive bandwidth to re-transmit live content. The Television Anytime platform is CA (Conditional Access) & DRM (Digital Rights Management) system agnostic and has been integrated with both card-less and card-based industry standard CA & DRM systems to ensure security & integrity of content.
The Television Anywhere technology provides a personal home cloud environment centralized at viewer’s living room, which provides a solution to TV Everywhere offers by cable, satellite and telco pay television providers. Television Anywhere technology puts the capability of accessing to any TV content on any screen in the hands of the consumer rather than having broadcasters or operators distributing additional feeds of channels and programs in multiple formats and technologies. The consumer is able to connect to his television source from authenticated registered screens and devices. Television Anywhere is focused on in-home use; however, the technology permits out-of-home usage when the broadcaster or operators has the appropriate content licensing rights. Additionally there is the ability to use the internet-connected portable device as a second screen to the main TV set as the device knows what is being watched at any time.
