Move Networks Optimizes Media Player for Intel-Based MIDs

Internet television services provider Move Networks has optimized its media player for mobile internet devices based on Intel Atom processor Z5 series and Moblin-based software.

With this support, Move Networks partners will be better able to deliver engaging, high-quality internet television experiences to mobile internet devices users when and where they want.

John Edwards, CEO of Move Networks, said: "The lines between the TV, the computer and mobile devices are blurring, while user demand for high-quality internet television programming that they can view on all of these platforms is growing. The combination of Intel's mobile internet devices (MID) platform with Move Networks's advanced internet television streaming services should help media companies meet this growing demand and provide their audiences with engaging, high-quality mobile internet television programming."

Pankaj Kedia, director of Global Ecosystem Programs in ultra mobility group at Intel, said: "MID have the potential to bring a range of internet-based TV and video entertainment experiences to mobile users' on-the-go. Intel's high performance, low power Atom processors, along with Move Networks' internet television services, should enable mobile users to experience rich, compelling television programming on MIDs wherever they may go."
