Motorola Mobility Launches Device to Help Deliver HD Content

Motorola Mobility, Inc. announced the launch of the Motorola High Definition Digital Terminal Adapter (HD-DTA), a device to help service providers deliver HD content to their basic subscribers. The Motorola HD-DTA is a one-way device that converts an operator’s digital signal in the home so subscribers can view HD content without the need for a more traditional set-top.

“Service providers continue to look for options that deliver HD content to their customers while reducing their overall costs,” said Larry Robinson, vice president of Home Devices, Motorola Mobility. “The Motorola HD-DTA is an ideal solution for basic subscriber households.”

The Motorola HD-DTA is a small, set-top that can be mounted out of sight and delivers HD content to additional outlets in the house cost effectively. It includes a 1GHz, all-digital tuner, HDMI and RF outputs and a Radio Frequency for Consumer Electronics (RF4CE) remote-control interface. The RF4CE remote enables control of the HD-DTA from anywhere in the room without line of sight to the device.

The Motorola HD-DTA will be available later in 2011.
