Motorola today introduced the Motorola B-3 Video Server designed to address small- to medium-sized streaming sites. The B-3 complements the Motorola B-1 solid-state on demand server.

The B-3 scales from several hundred to more than 3,000 streams and can be configured as a standalone server with integrated content library or as an edge server deployed alongside a B-1.

The B-3, which will be available in second quarter of 2009, delivers support for video on demand (VOD), time-shifted TV, on demand ad insertion and network DVR. The B-3 server expands Motorola’s on demand hardware and software portfolio organized around the Adaptive Media Management (AMM) framework. AMM algorithms were developed by analyzing data from 160 B-1 deployments encompassing 900,000 streams worldwide. AMM enables the B-1 and B-3 servers to select the optimal storage and streaming technologies.
