New Amino and PerceptionTV white paper highlight challenges facing operators in delivering successful OTT multiscreen experiences
(London, UK: 16 December 2014) Amino, leader in IPTV, and PerceptionTV, the IPTV multiscreen platform provider, today publish a new white paper addressing the challenge facing operators seeking to deliver a consistent off net multiscreen TV experience.
With consumers increasingly turning to a TV everywhere experience – with viewing on tablets and smartphones rising by almost 400% in the last two years* - operators must now rapidly create and deploy new ways of delivering “anytime, anyplace anywhere” content.
The white paper maps out the key challenges operators face as consumer demand changes rapidly and how Amino and PerceptionTV have jointly created a solution to meet this urgent market need.
The white paper - “Meeting the operator challenge: Delivering a consistent off net multiscreen TV experience” – highlights the key market requirements, including:
- A consistent user experience so that navigation, catch-up, VoD and recording are all accessible in the same user friendly way wherever the customer might be and what ever device is being used
- A service that always works – with HTML5 as the industry standard key enabler for the multiscreen experience, delivering this expectation
- The importance of main TV as the family focal point in the home, with future proof confidence as the 4K UHD “big TV” experience arrives
- Confidence that the technology is ahead of the market and its support organisations are able to deliver a continued roadmap of new services and features in line with customer requirements
Amino CEO Donald McGarva says: “Our customers are now engaging with us on how best to respond to the seismic shift in consumer viewing habits. While the family TV remains at the core of the viewing experience, it’s critical that operators respond to the TV anywhere experience – whilst retaining the consistent branded user experience their customers enjoy and trust. Working with PerceptionTV we’ve been able to demonstrate how this is now a reality and we look forward to showcasing to a wider community in the months ahead.”
John Mills, CEO, PerceptionTV adds: “Operators are facing huge challenges to successfully seize the opportunity TV anywhere presents. Our collaboration with Amino means we can provide the technology and insight into this fast moving landscape so operators can become confident and agile enough to deliver a successful user experience and a multiscreen TV service that is also fully futureproof.”
