Motama's software technology will be used in future digital home entertainment products from Bang & Olufsen

Bang & Olufsen and Motama announce long-term cooperation

(PresseBox) (Saarbrücken, ) Bang & Olufsen is known as one of the word leaders in high-end
products, such as music systems, loudspeakers, televisions, home
theater solutions, and telephones. In particular, the Danish company
has a long tradition of providing one of the finest and most complete
home entertainment experiences for users, combined with new and
innovative features.

After an extensive review of the market, Bang & Olufsen has now chosen
Motama as its competence partner to provide key software technology
for its future products for digital home networks. With its
Network-Integrated Multimedia Middleware (NMM), Motama offers a unique
and powerful approach to digital media networking that provides the
innovative features and high quality required for Bang & Olufsen's
distinctive high-end consumer products.

The NMM technology enables full control and seamless networking across
any number of media devices distributed within the home network and
beyond. With NMM, existing devices can be combined to form new
'virtual' devices, where media streams received by one device can be
presented simultaneously and fully synchronized on any other device or
group of devices within the network.
