SANTA CLARA, Kalifornien, 20. November 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- VisualOn, Inc., ein Multimedia-Softwareunternehmen, das hochqualitatives Video und Audio über verbundene Geräte ermöglicht, gab heute bekannt, man habe Swisscom als Kunden gewonnen.

Mit dieser Anwendung kann Swisscom seine solide Medienplattform ausbauen und den Schweizer Android-Nutzern jetzt 80 Kanäle mit Programmen und über 3.000 Sportveranstaltungen pro Jahr unterwegs anbieten.

„Der internationale Markt ist weiterhin mit den zunehmenden Herausforderungen der Gerätefragmentierung und der Bereitstellung von Medien unterwegs konfrontiert - dies ist genau der Bereich, in dem wir wachsen", sagt Yang Cai, CEO von VisualOn. „Wir skalieren für unsere Kunden, wie z. B. Swisscom, die Medienbereitstellung effizient über alle Geräte hinweg, damit sie ihren Nutzern in der ganzen Welt ein umfasendes und nahtloses Seherlebnis bieten können."

„Wir haben VisualOn als Partner aufgrund des nachgewiesenen Erfolgs bei der Überwindung der Plattformfragmentation ausgewählt", erklärt Stefan Schmidlin, Produktmanager von Swisscom. „Die Leistung des OnStream MediaPlayer+ erlaubt es uns, unseren Kunden qualitativ hochwertiges Live-TV-Streaming für Android-Geräte aller Art und Größe bereitzustellen."

Die kostenlose App von Swisscom TV ist jetzt für alle Marken von Android-Smartphones sowie für iPhones und iPads verfügbar. Für Mobilgeräte mit Windows steht eine gesonderte TV-App zur Verfügung. Für die Verwendung der Replay- und Live Pause-Funktion ist ein Swisscom TV air Abonnement erforderlich.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
