Choosing the flexible option can often be shorthand for choosing the most expensive option. But that’s about to change, with a new set top box from Motorola that lets consumers add video recording capability and capacity by simply installing a DVR module.
The Motorola VIP1853 allows subscribers to upgrade their set top box to an 8GB DVR that supports trick play/pause functionality. Serious media addicts can increase their memory capacity to 160, 320 or 500GB for full featured DVR functionality.
A new era of video and content delivery means that operators are having to adapt to new business models and viewing habits in order to survive. Differentiation in the marketplace is key, as is the ability to cost effectively introduce new services to strengthen relations between service providers and their subscriber. The VIP1853 answers both those needs by reducing set top box deployment costs for operators without compromising on performance.
