LAS VEGAS, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Screaming Velocity, Inc. (SVI), a Silicon Valley software technology company providing advanced recommendation technologies for the online, VOD, and Linear TV markets, is demonstrating version 2.0 of their machine learning-based recommendation engine today at the TelcoTV 2012 show at the Las Vegas Hotel.
The advanced recommendation system from Screaming Velocity allows third party set-top and online VOD companies to easily integrate via a simple, yet powerful, REST-based API solution. The recommendation technology was designed to allow licensees to quickly and easily add sophisticated recommendation capabilities to their existing linear TV, VOD and OTT offerings.
SVI's Social TV component analyzes and deciphers a user's social graph, thus allowing for immediate user recommendations - even when no historical usage data exists for that individual. Additionally, SVI's backend processes have been harvesting, analyzing, and summarizing historical TV and movie data for over a year, from various Internet sources.
"End users want a customized and personalized TV experience. I don't want to be presented with the same programs as my parents. And my kids don't want to be presented with my recommendations. It's astonishing, yet frustrating, just how much linear TV and VOD content exists in the world today. And finding those 'content gems' that apply to me, and my personal likes, is what our technology is all about. We're thrilled to be demonstrating our new version 2.0 technology here at Telco TV 2012," said Wayne Yurtin, president and CEO of Screaming Velocity, Inc.
