Emeryville, Calif. — MobiTV announced its strategic collaboration with Amlogic to provide the chipset for MobiTV’s streaming stick solution.
The Amlogic chipset will be the foundation of the white-labeled multiscreen service that brings a fully integrated experience to users, MobiTV said.
Secure delivery of high-value content is essential to services powered by MobiTV’s Connected Media Platform, and this integration with Amlogic's AML8726-MX system on chip (SoC) chipset solidifies a secure, multiscreen experience for viewers, MobiTV said. The AML8726-MX includes 1080p FullHD video capabilities, meant to enable operators to bring next-generation TV Everywhere offerings to the connected home at a cost-effective price point.
“A significant point of differentiation for the MobiTV Connect streaming stick is that it is distributed to consumers under our operator customer brands, and is integrated with their billing and current product offerings,” said Charlie Nooney, CEO at MobiTV. “Our partnership with Amlogic encourages a more powerful, full-service offering to wireless operators that is both low-cost and able to reach customers on a variety of screens, including FullHD content to the big screen in the home.”
The white-label streaming stick will offer numerous benefits to help wireless, IPTV, OTT and SDL broadband operators remain competitive in a crowded and growing industry. The device will allow customers to leverage existing networks and multi-service product bundles for immediate in-home deployment — without significant asset or operational investment. At the same time, Amlogic’s powerful chipset provides a hardware backbone for compelling operator services in the home, MobiTV said.
