The Boxfish Live iPad app searches every word spoken and trending on television

The Boxfish Live iPad app searches every word spoken and trending on television | mlearn | Scoop.it

Today Boxfish is officially throwing its hat into the ring after a soft launch earlier this year. At the time, Boxfish fully revealed its plans: Capture every word being spoken on television, load them into its database, make it searchable via its app. But this first iteration was more or less a Web test drive, where we could search and discover television content, but the operation stopped there. Now, the Palo Alto-based startup is lifting the curtain off its official product, an iPad app that allows you to search for TV content in real-time and then acts as a remote, changing the channel to the results as you want to view.

The Evolution of Connected TVs Leading to Second Screen Applications

The Evolution of Connected TVs Leading to Second Screen Applications | mlearn | Scoop.it

Connected TVs are one step closer to receiving second screen support so TV viewers can have an interactive experience.

 

Content identification company Vobile today launched its TVSync Connected TV API platform, designed to enhance connected TVs and second screen applications for consumers.

 

Vobile is utilizing a more open developer platform so the connected TV is brought to smartphone, tablet, PC and SmarTV viewers. It’s “available to broadcasters, cable companies, publishers, content providers and others, TVSync’s open API leverages the best video and audio ACR (Automatic Content Recognition) technology of the industry leader Vobile, named VDNA®, to facilitate exciting new applications that synchronize, in real time, to the content a user is consuming.”

Miso Sync: A Second Screen Experiment Using Android & Boxee

Miso Sync: A Second Screen Experiment Using Android & Boxee | mlearn | Scoop.it

Mobile devices and tablets offer TV networks new opportunities to create interactive programming that extends to second screens.But, do users, in fact, want to watch TV and engage with related content simultaneously? Entertainment checkin application Miso presumed the answer might be yes, but it wanted to test the hypothesis to learn more.

So Miso created Miso Sync, a private beta application for Android.

 

Built by Miso’s in-house innovation team Miso Labs, Miso Sync works only with Boxee. On launch, the application can determine whether there’s a Boxee device in the room, connect to the device and automatically identify what the user is watching and how far along he is in the show.

 

Miso Sync then displays character or show information on the mobile screen in real-time, timed and synced with the show’s content — much like what VH1 did with Pop-Up Video, but on the second screen.
