11 April : PARTNERING WITH BBC FOR NEXT GENERATION OTT VIEWING WITH MEDIA SYNCHRONIZER AND COMPANION SCREEN
This year at TV Connect we unveiled a joint project we’ve been involved in with BBC R&D on latest HbbTV 2.0.1 features of Companion Screen and Media Synchronizercapabilities. Partnering with BBC, these new features make viewing OTT content easier than ever for consumers by allowing them to use a tablet or smartphone to play alternate audio soundtracks (in other languages or with audio description for the visually impaired), complementing the content they are viewing. Additionally, as you move around you can switch between screens to seamless transition content from your TV to another device without losing your place. The video below gives you a sneak peek at the live demo we gave on these fantastic new capabilities during the show.
