ACCESS will demonstrate its ACCESS Twine multiscreen management platform, which has been extended to offer global search and remote access functionality. The solution helps operators enable consumers to find content across multiple sources via a single user interface, allowing them to access the operator content as well as their personal media library on every device.
“The multiscreen era has brought a wide range of devices into the TV mix, and consumers expect to be able to access the content they love on any screen, wherever it is stored,” commented Dr Neale Foster, COO and Global VP sales TV, ACCESS Europe. “ACCESS Twine has been extended to ensure that operators can allow subscribers to access all of their content seamlessly via a secure TV Everywhere virtual library, which provides an overview of the content saved on the consumer gateway and storage devices. This brings a whole new level of personalisation to multiscreen while offering studio confident delivery as ACCESS Twine complies with the content industry’s stringent security requirements.”
The CES demonstration, hosted at a demo suite in the Bellagio Hotel, Las Vegas, will show how ACCESS Twine facilitates video content discovery and playback on mobiles, tablets and operator branded devices such as STBs. The extended solution can be easily integrated with external metadata sources, allowing consumers to find all their content in one place by collating all locally stored libraries on a single platform. The new global search functionality enables operators deploying ACCESS Twine to offer services encompassing traditional broadcast services, IP delivered content and access to personal content, whether recorded on one or more in-home Personal Video Recorders (PVRs), in the cloud via a nPVR, stored on personal Network Attached Storage (NAS) or on tablets and smartphones.
