Motion Media videophone used in Scottish TM project

Motion Media Technology, a developer of videotelephony products, is one of four companies in a consortium delivering home telecare services to elderly residents in West Lothian, Scotland, as part of a US$1.5 million government-sponsored telemedicine project. The project, which is being managed by the West Lothian Council, is the largest of its kind in the U.K. Other participants include Turnstall Telecom, Possum Controls, and Technology in Healthcare.

In related news, Boston-based Motion Media is working with British Telecom to pilot its videophone technology for general home use by 120 families with young children. Each family is being lent up to three videophones to enable relatives living far away to visit regularly with the children.
