NEW YORK, August 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Jinni, a leader in semantic video discovery and targeted advertising solutions for entertainment brands, is pleased to announce Telefonica Spain's launching of Jinni powered discovery across both its OTT & STB platforms in a move geared at expanding on Yomvee's success with Jinni to Moviestar+.

Telefonica places a high value on their recommendations and it's become clear that using semantic discovery for content recommendations is essential for the company in order to generate more business and to keep their subscribers engaged by consuming more content that they will enjoy. Only semantic technology can understand what a title is truly about and how to create recommendations that users can rely on to reflect that.

Through a deep semantic understanding of the content utilizing Jinni's Entertainment Genome, operators can provide meaningful content recommendations to their users, thereby increasing the level of satisfaction and overall consumption of content by their subscribers.

"What sets entertainment recommendations apart from other products and services is that when it comes to Movies & TV consumers are connecting with something in each title they enjoy. Jinni's patented technology, with its semantic algorithms can understand and isolate these subtle elements. Jinni is proud to be setting the direction in the industry and we are pleased to support Telefonica Spain with the best semantic technology available on the market," said Yosi Glick, Jinni Co-Founder & CEO.
