Catch Mediaâ€™s patented registry, tracking, routing and clearinghouse technology, together with its post-acquisition license, provides retailers, carriers and consumer electronics vendors the ability to offer their customers legal and convenient access to their digital content from disparate devices - smartphones, tablets, set-tops, connected TVs and other connected devices inside and outside the home.
Catch Mediaâ€™s Play Anywhere system was rolled out with Best Buy Europe in Q4 2010 through a service called Music Anywhere offered by The Carphone Warehouse in the UK, and is expected to be rolled out in the US in early 2011 in cooperation with the music industry.
Catch Media will continue to work closely with the content industry to offer legal media cloud services that ensure rights holders are compensated as content is consumed across disparate devices.
Mony Hassid, managing director of Motorola Mobility Ventures, said: â€œInstant and easy access to music and video collections from any device, any place and at any time has become a necessity for consumers.
â€œCatch Mediaâ€™s innovative B2B platform gives consumers the ubiquitous access they crave while compensating the content owners, content distributors and every other party that contributes to the ecosystem.â€
Yaacov Ben-Yaacov, co-founder and CEO of Catch Media, said: â€œTeaming up with Motorola Mobility is very exciting for us and adds the support and expertise of a leading vendor for cellular carriers and Cable/Telco operators to the Play Anywhere ecosystem. Motorola Mobilityâ€™s support will enable our platform to be more tightly integrated across their devices.â€
