IBC 2016: powering the multiscreen world

IBC 2016: powering the multiscreen world

This year, IBC will demonstrate the latest innovations in technology that facilitate the next generation of multiscreen services. As ACCESS returns to IBC, we expect the discussions on the show floor to focus on the continuing evolution of multiscreen. In response, we will be demonstrating how operators can maximise the value of their relationships with consumers to monetise their multiscreen services further.

From providing granular data about the consumer’s habits through to delivering a seamless experience across a growing number of devices, operators already have a lot of challenges to tackle. On top of it, they now need to compete for subscriber attention as consumers move between platforms and content sources – from their personal media library to external services and premium content. To avoid losing subscribers to new players, operators need to ensure that consumers remain in their branded environment, which can be achieved by deploying the right technology.

Visitors to our stand at IBC will see our solutions portfolio in action and how it empowers operators to solve these three challenges at once to maximise the potential of their services.

Our product portfolio at IBC will include:

  • ACCESS Twine™, our multiscreen management platform that enables data aggregation and facilitates the deployment of highly targeted content catalogues and personalised search and discovery options.
  • The NetFront™ Browser family, enabling a seamless HTML5 powered experience across all screens – from smartphones and tablets through to the next generation TV screens. ACCESS’ solutions include WebKit-based NetFront™ Browser NX and Chromium-based NetFront™ Browser BE, both available as HbbTV editions.

Alongside product demonstrations, there will also be the opportunity to attend our session in the Content Everywhere Hub (Hall 14 on Friday, September 9th at 12:00 – 12:20), where visitors will be able to learn how to utilise data and browser-based user interfaces to offer services that adapt to consumers’ evolving habits.

We are also delighted to be working with a number of partners this year, who will also demonstrating their multiscreen services. Our partners include AirTies Wireless Networks (#5.C70), EKT (#5.B30), Innopia Technologies (5.B08), Opentech (#5.B11), Pixsan, Verimatrix (#5.A59), Vestel (#14.A20) and Zenterio (suite at Okura Hotel).
