TEL-AVIV, Israel, February 23, 2011 - OverCast - Innovative Mobile Application - Transforms TV Navigation
into a Personal and Engaging Experience
WebTView, a leader in over-the-top video content delivery to connected
devices, today announced its new mobile-based disruptive innovation called
OverCast, an extension to the WebTView Video Platform.
Today, viewers' content navigation on TV is limited, complex and not
personal. According to WebTView, OverCast is the breakthrough in user
experience that all of us have been waiting for. OverCast splits user
experience into two screens - personalized video content search and sharing
done on a smartphone or a tablet, selecting a TV show or a movie and
instantly watching it on widescreen TV. OverCast supports paid content as
well as ad-based content.
OverCast enables CE vendors, content providers and service providers to
seamlessly distribute video content to connected devices such as connected
TVs, connected Blu-ray/DVD players, digital media players, STBs and gaming
OverCast is integrated with WebTView Video Platform, which organizes
video content and distributes it to connected devices through its open API.
- User behavior-based personalized content recommendation and promotion - Support for video on-demand, catch-up TV, linear TV, Internet video and local content - Intuitive text and program guide search and filtering of video content - Social interaction with other users - sharing, recommendation, commenting, rating, etc. - Targeted advertising - Pay content from mobile device - PPV, subscription, etc. - TV playback control from mobile device
"OverCast will change the way that people interact with their TV", said
Gilad Brand, WebTView's VP of Marketing. "Content discovery and sharing is
made simple with OverCast on personal mobile devices, while maintaining a
lean back TV experience".
Through OverCast, content providers and service providers will be able to
extend their reach to new audience without the high cost of integration with
numerous connected devices.
CE vendors will be able to offer OverCast as a smart remote control
bundled with their products, thus, enable more content on their product with
no integration cost.
WebTView will demonstrate OverCast live at:
OTTCONF West 2011 in San-Jose, CA during March 1st and 2nd
IPTV World Forum 2011 in London during March 23rd and 24th - requires
coordination in advance (www.iptv-forum.com/).
