Emeryville, Calif. -
, which supplies TV streaming services over cellular, is gearing up to deliver video content in Dolby Digital Plus surround sound over cellular and Wi-Fi.
The company said it will integrate Dolby Digital Plus into its existing DRM-protected content-delivery platform to spur the delivery of live and on-demand TV programs and other video content in surround sound across multiple consumer platforms, including cellphones and tablets as well as PCs and Internet-connected consumer electronics devices such as TVs.
MobiTV is the
of cellular-delivered mobile-TV services for the AT&T U-verse Live TV, NFL Mobile on Verizon, Sprint TV, T-Mobile TV, Telus Mobile TV and US Cellular Mobile TV services, among others.
For years, the company has enabled cellular carriers to offer live-TV and on-demand video services over cellular, but late last year, MobiTV announced an end-to-end TV Everywhere solution that enables cable, satellite and IPTV service providers to offer live and on-demand programming to mobile devices for viewing inside and outside of the house.
Key features of MobiTV's TV Everywhere solution include the ability to pause, resume and transfer live programming between devices, allowing for place-shifting as well as time shifting. Users can record on any platform and view the recorded content on any platform, the company explained.
