First commercial deployment of new VIP1002E/F Series set-top and latest version of Motorola’s KreaTV™ application platform will bring enhanced video services to Turkish subscribers

ISTANBUL — Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced the first commercial deployment of its VIP1002E/F Series IPTV set-top with TTNET in Turkey. As one of the first set-tops to support the launch of TTNET’s IPTV service, the cost-effective VIP1002E/F will offer TTNET’s customers next-generation services such as pausing live TV, a feature normally found on higher specification digital video recorder (DVR) set-tops.

“Our customers are used to cutting edge Internet and communications services, so naturally the launch of our IPTV service will reflect the values of performance and quality of service at the same level,” says Timur Ceylan, TTNET’s vice president of operations. “With our solution partnership with Motorola we will offer a high-quality service at a competitive price as a part of our usual policy.”

Running the latest version of Motorola’s KreaTV™ application platform, the Motorola VIP1002 Series redefines the IP video experience. It allows operators to quickly generate new revenue while providing viewers with a high quality viewing experience across a broad range of IPTV services.

Using an internal flash memory drive, progressive download and extensive buffering, the VIP1002E/F can provide a ‘Pause Live TV’ function. This capability is ideal for operators who wish to offer over-the-top (OTT) video as it eliminates latency issues and offers a guaranteed quality of service (QoS).

“Motorola’s VIP1002E/F set-tops will enhance the great IPTV experience that TTNET will offer and also provide the opportunity to roll out new services as the market demands,” explains Steve McCaffery, vice president and general manager, Home business EMEA, Motorola Mobility. “The ability to offer DVR-like capabilities without the expense of a full-feature set-top makes it attractive for operators who want to lower their capital spending while differentiating themselves in the market.”

The VIP1002 IPTV Series set-tops are environmentally friendly and compliant with both US and EU initiatives(1) for low-power consumption in the home, featuring next-generation power management capabilities for lower energy consumption.
