June 14, 2010

Motorola may well target more acquisitions in the broadcast technology sector. The company's Motorola Home division –due to be split from the mobile business later this year – has already purchased a digital rights management developer and a content management systems firm. BitBand was bought in November 2009 with DRM specialist SecureMedia following soon after in January 2010.

“We are putting a great deal of emphasis on end-to-end delivery something that the acquisitions have helped a great deal,” said Steve McCaffery. VP and GM, Motorola Home EMEA. “I wouldn't say there was anything immediate coming up but it is certainly something we are not averse to looking at if the right opportunity comes along.”
