Comigo Introduces the Smartest Smart TV Platform

Comigo to electrify the market with an innovative Smart TV platform offering multi-screen experience with revolutionary personalization and interactive socialization capabilities

Yarkona, Israel and London, UK - 19th March 2012: Comigo, an Israel-based company, today announced the introduction of a feature-rich Smart TV platform that will considerably enhance the TV experience by uniquely extending viewing across all types of handheld devices, opening up revolutionary personalization and interactive socialization capabilities. Comigo's advanced Smart TV platform includes applications for Smartphones and Tablets (Android and iOS based), an Android-based Smart Set-Top-Box (STB), web interface for operators and broadcasters, and back-end servers which enable and support the platform's features and capabilities.

Created with strong emphasis on exciting user experience, Comigo's multi-screen Smart TV platform ensures consistent viewing experience across devices and enables users to stream content flawlessly from one device to another. Moreover, users can enjoy complementary services with handheld devices, which allow for a remote control of Comigo's Smart Set-Top-Box, remote recording of shows, or private management of social interactions on a handled device while watching a show on the TV screen with others.

With an intuitive and straightforward user interface, the platform incorporates best in-class personalized Smart TV features. Users are able to access their own selected content, whether it is live TV (IPTV and DTT channels), web based content, VOD or local content. Users can create their own watch-lists, define favourites, share recommendations and interact with their social network of friends while watching TV.

Comigo's Smart TV solution offers revolutionary interactive social capabilities and new types of applications overlaid on top of the broadcasted stream. Viewers can check what friends are watching in real time and invite them to watch the same show, then enjoy communicating, interacting and playing together. Moreover, viewers can check-in to a show and meet new people.

Comigo's Smart TV platform enables operators, broadcasters and media companies to expand their business in the Smart TV arena by providing powerful user analytics, based on users' personal and social footprints and habits, enabling effective micro-targeted campaigns and viral promotions. Comigo's multi-screen solution allows content distribution to Smartphones and Tablets as well, and Comigo's innovative, interactive applications open up new revenue opportunities for operators.

"Watching television is rapidly evolving into a social experience with users in charge of the timing of the content they want to watch, accompanied by a desire to share the viewing experience with their friends", said Dov Moran, CEO of Comigo. "The technology is there, but so far the experience has been unwieldy and cumbersome and brings the social network, internet abilities and wide verity on Android-based applications to the TV viewers. Comigo's smart TV platform provides ground breaking user experience and brings social media, internet abilities, and our wide verity of Android based applications to the TV viewers.

"The converter we invented combines these abilities with streaming attributes to show all home multimedia files with linear channels to receive DVBT broadcasting, internet TV (IPTV), and advanced recording abilities."

Comigo will be presenting its smartest Smart TV platform to IPTV/OTT operators, broadcasters, CE hardware vendors and media companies at the IPTV World Forum in London on 20 - 22 March 2012, Booth G1.

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
