Motive Television Announces Video to Go

LONDON--(Marketwire - Jul 20, 2011) -






              Motive Television Announces "Video to Go"

         Brings Television Anytime Anywhere- VOD for iPads


London 20 July, 2011 -- Motive Television plc announces today it has
developed a major advancement in its Television Anytime Anywhere
platform enabling the seamless loading of recorded movies and other
pre-recorded material to laptops, iPads and other tablet and mobile
devices.



The advancement allows viewers to transfer a recorded file from their
set-top box to a second screen, or mobile device, to watch anytime,
anywhere without the need for an internet signal. For example, viewers
can pre-load an iPad with content from a home set-top box for later
viewing on an airplane, viewing in the back of a car, or commuting on a
train.



This new technology brings together Motive's two patented capabilities,
Television Anytime and Television Anywhere (US patent pending), into
one product that allows viewers to simply sideload content to any
mobile device. It also provides opportunities for the hospitality
industry, airport lounges, and coffee houses to offer Video to Go to
their customers.



Motive will be launching this product this autumn, enabling operators
and broadcasters to provide:



 * The sideloading of VOD content for viewing anytime and anywhere on
   any iPad, tabletor mobile platform.

 * The provision of a branded device user interface with social
   networking interactivity.



Anthony Combe, CTO and VP Engineering of Motive said, "We are able to
combine and extend Motive's flexible, patented and proprietary
technology to help our clients create a wide range of consumer
services. Connecting the television with the second screen is an
exciting advance both for Motive and a number of different industries."



Leonard M. Fertig, CEO of Motive, added, "Motive's Television Anytime
Anywhere platform allows broadcasters, satellite television, and cable
operators to provide a wide range of new services to their viewers. We
are dedicated to bringing these innovations to consumers together with
our industry partners. Our new "Video to Go" service is another example
of Motive's leading edge capabilities."
