On-the-go access to music, video, photos and documents from users smartphones, tablets, PCs and web-portals
Motorola Mobility, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Motorola, has acquired Zecter, a provider of synchronisation and streaming technologies for on-demand digital media consumption.
Zecter’s offerings connect users to their content seamlessly and instantaneously, giving them simple, on-the-go access to music, video, photos and documents from their smartphones, tablets, PCs and web-portals.
Dell said that Zecter currently has two commercially available products: ZumoDrive for cloud-based content sync, access and sharing; and ZumoCast for personal media streaming to any device.
Through this acquisition, Motorola Mobility will enhance its mobile content experience and MOTOBLUR service offering by enabling consumers to enjoy their digital content across their mobile devices, wherever they are.
In addition, it will also integrate Zecter’s wireless syncing, desktop integration, video transcoding and thin-file retrieval technologies across its device and MOTOBLUR offerings to provide consumers with real-time access to their content.
Motorola Mobility corporate vice president of software and services Christy Wyatt said consumers want seamless access to their content and media from wherever they are, while content providers want to ensure that content remains protected and secure.
"We believe that Zecter enables that seamless experience with the necessary security measures, and we are delighted to be able to work with this team," Wyatt said.
