AMSTERDAM, September 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
HDMI Dongle Offers Operators a New Means to Break Down Barriers to the Home
- IBC (Connected World Hall 14, Booth 160)
MobiTV, a global leader in enabling delivery of live and on-demand TV Everywhere, today announced new HDMI dongle capabilities that offer operators a cost-effective entry into the home. At IBC (Hall 14, Booth 160), the company is showcasing its Connected Media Platform with an HDMI dongle powering an in-home and True TV Everywhere experience.
The dongle's emergence in the ecosystem of devices creates an opportunity for wireless, IPTV and DSL broadband operators to enter the home and broaden their branded offering to include a True TV Everywhere solution that leverages their customer relationships. The device offers easy installation, without truck rolls, allowing the service to get off the ground and into homes quickly and easily. Additionally, operators can optimize the growing use of the second screen, as the tablet or smartphone becomes the remote control, thereby creating a better user experience in the living room.
"This device breaks down barriers to the home that used to exist, in order for providers to extend their brands and deliver a more engaging experience to their users," said Charlie Nooney, CEO and Chairman of MobiTV. "MobiTV's deep expertise across platforms, and especially with Android, allows us to be creative with our delivery by integrating social recommendations and advertising insertion, among other cutting-edge advances."
Like the tablet and the smartphone, the dongle has strong potential to make waves in the industry. It provides mobile operators with a way to bring viewing into the home, and an opportunity to leverage existing assets, including a large preexisting footprint of mobile devices which can be used as a second screen, wide subscriber base and multi-service product bundles. DSL broadband and IPTV providers can leverage this device as a low cost means to support multi-room deployments. Powered by MobiTV's Connected Media Platform, broadband operators can expand their presence to True TV Everywhere in and out of the home thus allowing them to compete more effectively using their own infrastructure.
