Optical Solutions and Motorola develop home entertainment solution
Network service providers with fiber-to-the-home networks can now offer customers an advanced set-top system for enjoying a wide range of consumer broadband multimedia services such as digital-quality broadcast TV, high-speed Web access, 2-D and 3-D games, video and music-on-demand and online shopping. Optical Solutions and Motorola have collaborated on a broadband home entertainment solution with the Motorola Streamaster multimedia set-top system and Optical Solutions 400 fiber-to-the-home system.
Streamaster targets telecommunications carriers and other DSL network service providers wishing to enhance revenues and fend off competition by delivering convergent voice, video and data services to consumers. Streamaster, which was developed within Motorola's Semiconductor Products Sector, gains its intelligence through technology.
