24i to launch TV Everywhere Solution ‘Smart Operator’ at IBC2014
TV app developer 24i introduces its product ‘Smart Operator’ at the annual trade show IBC in Amsterdam. The Smart Operator enables TV operators to reach out with their TV channels and VoD content to any consumer screen worldwide, from TV to mobile phone.
The Smart Operator is an IPTV and OTT TV Everywhere front-end solution that enables operators to bring an interactive TV experience to any screen. It offers a uniform interface and interoperability across all connected devices, ranging from Smart TVs, game consoles and set-top boxes to tablets and smartphones. The product enriches the traditional TV experience of live TV and Video-on-Demand with a multi-screen approach and innovative features like SocialTV, Pause & Restart TV, Cloud PVR and User Profiling & Recommendations.
Martijn van Horssen, CEO of 24i, comments: “With the Smart Operator, offering a modern, multi-screen TV experience is now within reach for any operator, on a pay-per-user basis. Their consumers enjoy a personalized TV offering on all of their devices, wherever they are. Imagine watching live TV on your tablet in the train and switching to your Smart TV when you get home. A uniform TV experience, platform agnostic: that’s our innovative and strategic offering to operators and broadcasters.”
The multi-platform IPTV and OTT TV app can be deployed on top of any existing or newly chosen back-end system. A separate set-top box is an option, not a necessity. 24i demonstrates the Smart Operator and other TV app solutions at the IBC trade fair in Amsterdam in hall 14, booth L05 until September 16th.
