TMS startet OnConnect Managed Services

-- Neue APIs für die Datenlieferung und den Bilderdienst wird Innovationen bei Entwickler anregen, die moderne Unterhaltungsschnittstellen schaffen

CHICAGO, 29. November 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TMS, der führende Anbieter von Entertainmentmetadaten hat kürzlich OnConnect Managed Services gestartet, eine neue DaaS-Plattform (Data as a Service), die einen leistungsfähigen Satz an Programmierschnittstellen (APIs) und einen Bilderdienst bietet.

Mit einem einfachen Zugriff auf dutzende Datenlieferungs-API-Methoden bietet OnConnect Anwendungsentwicklern eine zuverlässige, flexible und skalierbare Lieferung der branchenführenden Metadaten vom unternehmenseigenen On® TV Entertainment. Der Partner von TMS, Digitalsmiths, leitete die Entwicklung und wird viele dieser APIs zur Datenlieferung über eine leistungsfähige, skalierbare Seamless Discovery-Plattform verwalten.

Zusätzlich zu APIs zur Datenlieferung beinhaltet OnConnect ImageCloud, einen Bilderdienst, der On-Demand-Zugriff auf Fernseh- und Filmbilder sowie auf Bilder von Berühmtheiten, die ausschließlich über TMS verfügbar sind. Alle Bilder entsprechen dem Bildstandard von TMS und alle Metadaten sind vollständig mit der einzigartigen TMS-ID synchronisiert.

OnConnect wird TMS-Kunden bei neuen Innovationen unterstützen, indem Forschungs- und Entwicklungszeitleisten verkürzt sowie die Markteinführung für fortschrittliche, visuell aufwendige Entertainmentanwendungen beschleunigt werden. Mit seinem Fokus auf gehostete Bilddateien und effiziente Datenanfragen wurde OnConnect speziell für die Nutzung mit Tablets und mobilen Anwendungen gestaltet. Entwickler, die Interesse am Produkt haben, können unter http://developer.tmsapi.com auf eine interaktive Dokumentation zugreifen und können einen Schlüssel für Entwickler anfragen.

Zu den über OnConnect verfügbaren Entertainmentmetadaten gehören Kinospielzeiten sowie umfangreiche lineare Programmpläne, Online-Videodaten und Beschreibungen zum TV-Programm, zu Filmen, zu Sport und zu Berühmtheiten. Die APIs für die Datenlieferung können kombiniert werden, um eine große Auswahl an Nutzungsszenarien abzudecken. Image Cloud ermöglicht es den Kunden auf einfache Weise aufwendige Bilder in ihre Unterhaltungsschnittstellen einzubetten, ohne das für den Endkunden hohe indirekte Kosten für die Aufnahme, die Speicherung und die Betreuung dieser Bilder anfallen.

„Die Branche entwickelt sich ganz klar in Richtung eines größeren Angebots an Verbraucherführern, Anwendungen und Benutzerschnittstellen", erklärte John Kelleher, TMS Präsident und Chief Operating Officer. „OnConnect unterstützt Entwickler bei schnellen Innovationen, da die Qualität und die Konnektivität von On-Entertainment-Daten genutzt werden, während gleichzeitig die Loyalität und die Nutzung ihrer Angebote wachsen."

„Digitalsmiths ist stolz bei der Bereitstellung von nahtlosen APIs zur Datenlieferung für Entwickler mit unserem Partner TMS zusammenzuarbeiten", erklärte Ben Weinberger, Digitalsmiths CEO. „Indem On Entertainment-Metadaten zugänglicher gemacht werden, beschleunigen Digitalsmiths und TMS Videoinnovationen und -erfahrungen für die Kunden von heute."

TMS Metadaten versorgen die weltweit aufregendsten Unterhaltungsführer, die über Kunden wie Microsoft, Google, TiVo, Comcast, IMDb, Virgin Media UK, DIRECTV Latin America, SKY Brasil und Cablevision Mexico hunderte Millionen Kunden in 40 Ländern erreichen.

The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Technology is enabling a new approach to collecting and using data. This approach, commonly referred to as the "Internet of Things" (IoT), enables businesses to use real-time data from all sorts of things including machines, devices and sensors to make better decisions, improve customer service, and lower the risk in the creation of new revenue opportunities. In his General Session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Dave Wagstaff, Vice President and Chief Architect at BSQUARE Corporation, discuss the real benefits to focus on, how to understand the requirements of a successful solution, the flow of ...

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
