Motorola Mobility Acquires SunUp Digital Systems

Motorola Mobility has acquired SunUp Digital Systems, a software provider based in Santa Clara, California, for an undisclosed sum.

SunUp Digital Systems develops and markets high performance, operating software for IPTV, DTH, Digital Cable, and content distribution networks.

The SunUp software will enhance the Motorola Medios software platform, providing the ability, for example, to enforce content rights and to manage live content across multiple screens.

"Consumers are increasingly using companion devices to augment and personalize their entertainment experience, and with the acquisition of SunUp, Motorola Mobility strengthens its ability to enable service providers to rapidly create and manage advanced revenue-generating video services across multiple screens," said John Burke, senior vice president and general manager, Converged Experiences, Motorola Mobility.
