Tvinci to demonstrate companion screen app

Tvinci will use IBC to demonstrate its ‘OTT 2.0’ platform, which will include a range of new features, including its Mobile 2.0 app for tablets and smartphones.

End users can use their mobile device for browsing and selecting a TV show through a social EPG that shows what their friends are watching, and then swipe it to preview on a TV set, powered by a set-top or Smart TV platform. The companion device can also become a remote control so that users can browse for the next show and socialise while they watch uninterrupted.

“Each member of a household has their own content preferences, social network and mobile devices, and now they’ll have their own TV,” said Ofer Shayo, CEO, Tvinci. “We designed a platform that fits the individual nature of household members and creates a tailor made watching experience for each of them. This approach facilitates the key elements which come together in the form of OTT 2.0: the online delivery of TV, facilitating end user participation and providing personalised recommendations integrated with the end users’ social networks, across the entire range of connected devices. At IBC, we’ll demonstrate improved architecture created for easier interaction, alongside new SDKs for multiple mobile applications, enhanced device management tools for users to effectively manage the applications, and multi-DRM support in order to protect the content on any device.”
