Motorolo (via its wholly-owned Motorola Mobility) is extending the so-called “year of acquisitions” in the mobile space to the very end of 2010.
Late last week, Motorolo announced its purchase of on-demand digital media synchronization and streaming technologies provider Zecter.
The acquisition will give Motorola Mobility access to many of Zecter established and burgeoning services and technologies.
According to a joint press release announcing the acquisition, Zecter’s solutions connect users to their content “seamlessly and instantaneously,” giving them simple, on-the-go access to music, video, photos and documents from their smartphones, tablets, PCs and web-portals.
Zecter currently has two products commercially available: ZumoDrive, for cloud-based content sync, access and sharing; and ZumoCast, for personal media streaming to any device. Both products use virtual file system technologies to make any personal content instantly available even if it is not stored locally.
Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed, but what Motoroloa has to gain from having Zecter in the fold is powerfully transparent.
Christy Wyatt, corporate vice president of software and services at Motorola Mobility says “Zecter’s robust team brings multi-platform expertise along with compelling solutions for continuous digital media access across multiple platforms. Zecter is an exciting addition to our MOTOBLUR service platform and we welcome their highly skilled personnel to the Motorola Mobility team.”
