Motorola Mobility has launched a high definition digital terminal adapter (HD-DTA), a one-way device that converts an operator’s digital signal in the home so subscribers can view HD content without the need for a more expensive, traditional set-top.

The Motorola HD-DTA is a small set-top that can be mounted out of sight and delivers HD content to additional outlets in the house. It includes a 1GHz, all-digital tuner, HDMI and RF outputs and a Radio Frequency for Consumer Electronics (RF4CE) remote-control interface. The RF4CE remote enables control of the HD-DTA from anywhere in the room without line of sight to the device.

The Motorola HD-DTA will be available later in 2011.

In other news, Motorola Mobility announced its intention to work with Honeywell Security Group to develop an end-to-end security solution for cable and telecom service providers, offering subscribers a connected home security service that enables remote management of alarm panels and associated security devices using multiple control interfaces, including TV, smartphone, PC and tablet.
