Motorola is hoping to get its DreamGallery TV technology in front of more eyeballs. The company just announced plans to expand the reach of the platform.
If you aren’t familiar with the DreamGallery experience, it’s the user navigation component of Motorola’s Medios+ platform for multi-screen video distribution. It’s also designed to make TV more like surfing the web. It boasts easy, personalized searches, as well as customized media and smart recommendations—on more devices.
The tech used to need HTML5 to make the magic happen. However, Motorola just announced plans to put DreamGallery in an expanded range of devices, via new virtualized cloud-rendering technology. The upgrade has a virtual module that renders HTML5 in the cloud, so it’s not needed at the box.
“DreamGallery is extending its award-winning multi-screen navigation and entertainment experience to millions of Motorola set-tops in subscriber homes today,” said John Burke, senior VP and GM of Motorola Mobility’s converged solutions. “Consumers want to find content faster and enjoy it on any device. Our service provider customers are eager to address this demand with rich DreamGallery experiences, but are constrained by the cost and complexity of upgrading their set-top boxes. Now, this cloud-based virtual module lets them deliver this next-generation experience to more subscribers.”
DreamGallery has been widely deployed in Europe, but the movement is growing in North America. Verizon recently announced plans to add the DreamGallery experience to FiOS Home in the United States.
