LAS VEGAS and LOS GATOS, Calif., Jan. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Screaming Velocity, Inc., a Silicon Valley-based software company providing advanced TV programming recommendation technology, today unveiled its Velocity Recommendation Agent™ at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

The Velocity Recommendation Agent combines past and present consumer behavior, such as television viewing, Facebook user characteristics, Twitter followers, and other user specific social networking actions, to deliver custom tailored TV programming.  The Velocity Recommendation Agent enables digital TV and cable set-top manufacturers to embed advanced recommendation technology within their devices.  The licensable Velocity Agent is compatible with all of today's major television platforms, including Samsung Smart TV, Google TV-powered devices, LG Smart TV, and Apple TV.

"It's our belief that users want a unique and custom tailored TV viewing experience," said Wayne Yurtin, president and CEO of Screaming Velocity.  "If I'm a Derek Jeter baseball fan and he's being interviewed by Barbara Walters on ABC News tonight, I want to know about it.  Better yet, I just want my TV to record it and notify me.  Likewise, if someone loves Lady Gaga's music, they follow her on Twitter and 'Like' her songs on Facebook, why wasn't their television smart enough to record her Thanksgiving TV special with Katie Couric?  These are the types of real world problems our technology solves.  If there's something on TV that applies to you, your likes, and your interests or hobbies – we'll let you know, and automatically record it, so you don't miss out on the TV shows that you'd find interesting."

Screaming Velocity will be hosting demonstrations at their hospitality suite at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel.  To schedule a first-hand demonstration of these solutions during the 2012 International CES, please contact our conference coordinator at: CES@ScreamingVelocity.com
