Motorola and KDDI's au BOX Service - Content Shifting from Set-top Box to Mobile Device

Motorola is giving KDDI one heck of a media server set-top box, according to a press release issued yesterday. The set-top will support KDDI's au BOX service. A big feature of the box is its ability to aggregate digital media (ripping music from CDs, ingesting video from personal video recorders, and accessing digital content from Web portals for purchase) and stream it to mobile phone handsets. The box is based on the KreaTV Application Platform, a software platform that Motorola acquired when it bought Kreatel in early 2006.
