Is This the Second-Screen TV App That Finally Goes Mainstream?

Is This the Second-Screen TV App That Finally Goes Mainstream? | second screen | Scoop.it

The second screen doesn’t yet have its Facebook. Zeebox could be it. Debuting today in the U.S., the app has already found a sizeable audience in the U.K. at 1.5 million users since first launching in November. The app’s done well in large part due to its partnerships with broadcasters, who can both push their own content to the app and get real-time audience metrics from it. For the U.S. launch, both Comcast’s NBC Universal and HBO are on board.

BlackArrow Extends Linear TV Ad Systems To Multiple Screens

BlackArrow Extends Linear TV Ad Systems To Multiple Screens | second screen | Scoop.it

Vendor Showed ‘Linear Extensions’ Technology at CableLabs Interop Event Last Month.


Dynamic ad-management vendor BlackArrow is touting a suite of services designed to let pay-TV operators use traditional linear TV advertising systems to deliver the same broadcast ad load -- or swap them out to play targeted ads -- to tablets and other IP video devices.

 

The new services include: Linear Replication, which uses linear schedule ingest and dynamic ad insertion to replicate the original linear TV ads on tablets and IP devices; and Linear Addressability, which can swap out linear ads and replace them in real time with household-addressable spots. BlackArrow’s Linear Extensions use CableLabs’s new Event Signaling and Messaging (ESAM) specification as well as SCTE 130 standards for dynamic ad insertion.

BBC : Building Connected TV Apps

BBC : Building Connected TV Apps | second screen | Scoop.it

Today the BBC iPlayer, News and Sport apps are available on an astonishing 650 connected TV devices, from internet-enabled or Smart TVs and set-top-boxes to media players and games consoles, delivering more than 45 million videos to 2 million users every month. Most recently, the BBC Sport app has been used by more than 200,000 users a day to watch the phenomenal London 2012 Olympic Games coverage on connected TVs alone, having only launched a few short weeks before.

 

While this is a remarkable achievement in itself, it certainly wasn't easy or straightforward, and I would like to share with you what challenges we have encountered, what we have learnt in the process of solving them and what we believe is important to consider for anyone looking at building applications for connected TVs.

France Telecom’s Viaccess hooks up second screen

France Telecom’s Viaccess-Orca launched a service package for second screen integration and engagement with a focus on enhanced metadata at IBC2012.

Called DEEP (Data Enrichment and Engagement Platform), the package enables pay TV operators to link PCs, tablets, smart phones, games consoles and other IP devices in the home more tightly to the service, and stimulate further activity around the content.

DEEP builds on existing standards such as DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) and UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) that facilitate automatic device discovery, and also on browser technology, adding new metadata creation methods developed by Viaccess-Orca itself, along with key contributions from two partners, TVersity and Audible Magic. TVersity provides the media server technology on top of DLNA, UPnP or the browser to enable devices to exchange content, supporting games consoles, most set top boxes, Blu-ray players, smart TVs, phones, PCs, and tablets. This comes as software loaded onto a PC, which can then discover devices automatically if they are DLNA or UPnP client. If not then the device can join in by pointing its browser to the PC.
