ACCESS Twine Platform Launched to Enable Operators to Conquer Multiscreen Fragmentation
SUNNYVALE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
CO., LTD., a global provider of advanced software technologies to the
mobile, beyond-PC and digital TV markets, today announced the launch of
ACCESS Twine. The new software solution enables multiscreen operators to
bridge the growing gap between technology fragmentation and consumer
demand for simplicity and universal content access on all devices.
"Fragmentation is the largest technological hurdle operators face when
looking to deploy the multiscreen services that are now a consumer must
have," said Dr. Neale Foster, COO and VP, Global Sales TV, ACCESS Europe.
"ACCESS Twine has been developed to provide a single management platform
that helps operators address fragmentation issues in terms of device
type, browser and OS, interaction method, screen size, secure content
delivery and rights issues. ACCESS Twine provides the simplest route for
operators to launch true TV Everywhere while enabling consumers to
access the existing operator portfolio and their personal content such
as recordings on their PVR devices even when they are outside of the
home. This helps operators to focus on providing the best possible
services to attract and retain customers as well as maximize ARPUs,"
concluded Dr. Foster.
ACCESS Twine in a nutshell:
Conquers fragmentation issues: the greatest technological
issues faced by operators in deploying true multiscreen services.
Operators can leverage their own "content transcryption" method via
the gateway device.
Support for CA and DRM systems: Pre-integration of CA and DRM
systems, including Microsoft (News - Alert) PlayReady, facilitating the control and
in-home distribution of video content from PVRs and other devices
Accessibility on all platforms: Faciliating video content
discovery and playback on mobiles, tablets and operator branded
devices such as STBs
Domain and device management: Enabling operators to manage
device authorizations, concurrent devices and remote access as well as
create managed domains regardless of device and content security
Tracking: Real-time data collection enabling efficient tracking
and logging of device usage and media consumption
Personalized advertising models: Data analytics allow for
targeted advertisement insertion, e.g. before and after PVR content
and within user interfaces, enabling operators to monetize multiscreen.
ACCESS Twine combines cloud-based device and domain control with
ACCESS' award winning DLNA certified technology component NetFrontTM
Living Connect, which has been extended with new modules to control and
monitor video distribution. The integration of the award winning NetFrontTM
Browser NX as an optimized HTML5 User interface engine ensures that
ACCESS Twine is ready to meet today's requirements for fast service
deployment and easy integration of online services. By using HTML5 and
responsive design functionality, operators can develop flexible user
interfaces (UIs) that enhance the user experience (UX) across different
operating systems, screen sizes and interaction methods. Support for the
new Encrypted Media Extensions and Media Source (News - Alert) Extensions also enables
the solution to comply with the content industry's security
requirements. ACCESS Twine also features support for open standards such
as the new DLNA Commercial Video Profile-2 (CVP-2) guidelines, DLNA,
