Motorola Mobility will utilize FourthWall Media’s EBIF Platform for Motorola set-tops and FourthWall’s AirCommand solution, both for Motorola Medios, a multi-screen service management software suite for the cable industry.

AirCommand is a set of cloud-based services connecting mobile devices, such as smart phones and tablets, to EBIF-enabled set-tops. Motorola will package FourthWall’s platform and AirCommand solution into Motorola Medios to further expand its multi-screen managed services offering.

AirCommand connects the TV footprint to the ever-expanding world of mobile devices opening the door to entirely new media consumption experiences. The application possibilities include remote programming of DVRs; the ability to view and play on-demand titles; social media and messaging applications between mobile devices and set-tops; and cross-platform widgets, merchandising and commerce.

AirCommand provides a scalable gateway for cross-platform applications powered by EBIF technology, leveraging the EBIF common language to provide cable operators packaged solutions that connect all of the consumer’s digital devices with a single solution. This fosters the creation of new applications while shielding developers from the intricacies of on-boarding individual television applications.

"Working with Motorola, we are connecting this broad EBIF-enabled footprint to their Android-powered devices through AirCommand," said Tim Peters, FourthWall CEO, in a statement. "We look forward to a productive relationship with Motorola and collaborating on our cross-platform products that expand the Motorola Medios service.”
