VisualOn livre la télévision mobile vers Android pour Swisscom

SANTA CLARA, Californie, 20 novembre 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- VisualOn, Inc., une société de logiciels multimédias qui permet la vidéo et l'audio de haute qualité à travers des périphériques connectés, a annoncé aujourd'hui qu'elle a remporté Swisscom en tant que client. VisualOn permet au fournisseur de télécommunications de fournir du contenu TV en direct et à la demande sur les périphériques Android en Suisse. Swisscom a intégré OnStream MediaPlayer+ de VisualOn, une solution qui permet une lecture de haute qualité à travers des périphériques, dans son application Swisscom TV Android, qui apporte le meilleur du divertissement à un éventail d'appareils connectés encore plus large.

La consommation mondiale de vidéos mobiles augmentera de 90 pour cent entre 2011 et 2016, selon Cisco. Pendant ce temps, les périphériques Android continuent de dominer la part de marché et la multitude de téléphones Android présente un défi unique pour les solutions de mise à l'échelle afin de fournir des contenus multimédias à travers tous les périphériques. La technologie économique de VisualOn permet à Swisscom d'offrir à ses clients une haute qualité audio et une lecture visuelle indépendamment des différents formats, protocoles de streaming ou capacités matérielles. Cette application permet à Swisscom d'élargir sa plateforme média robuste pour offrir à présent 80 canaux de programmation et plus de 3 000 événements sportifs par an aux utilisateurs Android suisses en déplacement.

« Le marché international continue de faire face au défi croissant de la fragmentation des périphériques tout en essayant de fournir des médias en déplacement : c'est là que nous nous démarquons », a déclaré Yang Cai, président-directeur général de VisualOn. « Nous réduisons efficacement la livraison de médias à travers des périphériques pour nos clients comme Swisscom, afin qu'ils puissent fournir une expérience de visualisation riche et transparente pour les utilisateurs du monde entier ».

« Nous avons sélectionné VisualOn en tant que partenaire sur la base du succès qu'il a démontré pour surmonter la fragmentation des plateformes », a déclaré Stefan Schmidlin, chef de produit chez Swisscom. « La performance de OnStream MediaPlayer nous permet d'offrir du streaming de télévision en direct de qualité à nos clients sur les périphériques Android de tous types et de toutes tailles ».

L'application gratuite Swisscom TV est maintenant disponible pour toutes les marques de smartphones Android, ainsi que pour les iPhone et iPad. Une application TV séparée est également disponible pour les périphériques mobiles Windows. Un abonnement payant Swisscom TV est nécessaire pour utiliser les fonctions de pause en direct et de transmission en différé.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
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.
