When paired with 24i's technology, metadata is automatically created by the Indexer and imported as tags into 24i's SmartOTT. For broadcasters for example, this can help create more impactful promotion clips and drive viewers to their content.
“Be it live or on-demand, video is a great way for media companies to engage with viewers whose consumption habits have evolved beyond the linear experience,” said Sudheer Sirivara, General Manager, Azure Media, Microsoft Corp. “We’re excited to partner with 24i Media to deliver a personalized viewing experience to audiences, anytime, anywhere, on any device."

Eduardo Mandía del Castillo, Sales & Programming Director of Nuevo Siglo, comments: “To serve our customers with the most complete offering, it was vital for us to extend the reach of NS Now to include Smart TVs and game consoles.
