Cloud-based Over-The-Top Video Platform to Enable Rich Premium and Freemium Video Content for Consumer Electronics

TEL AVIV, Israel, May 16, 2011 - WebTView, a leader in over-the-top video content delivery to connected
devices, today announced its web crawler has discovered over 17,500 video
feeds published on the Internet by content providers such as HBO, ESPN, NBC
and many others. The WebTView Video Platform now offers over 550,000 videos
that are playable on digital media players, connected TVs, STBs, connected
Blu-ray players, gaming consoles and mobile devices. Developed by WebTView
for the last 3 years, the web crawler handles thousands of new videos that
are automatically updated in an on-going basis, creating the biggest updated
syndicated video catalog, which can be used on embedded devices, PCs and
mobile devices.

Unlike other video platforms that heavily rely on YouTube as their main
source of video content, WebTView had developed its own technology to

information from the web. Thanks to this deep analysis, connected devices can
display important video-related information for videos that can be played on
these specific connected devices. Cross content provider functionality such
as search, tag-based browsing, personalization, recommendation and statistics
are fully supported by the platform's robust and scalable REST API.

"Our substantial content offering enables our customers and partners to
provide a unique mix of free and paid video content to consumers that buy

co-founder. "We are very proud to be the over-the-top platform of choice for
many consumer electronics vendors in order to bridge the gap between content
providers and video-eager consumers."

discovery, analysis, ingestion, management, billing, accounting and much
more, in order to let consumer electronics vendors to leverage its
