MediaNavi Multi-Screen Interface Integrates Into Android, iOS, WebOS & Windows Platforms
LAS VEGAS, Nevada – (Consumer Electronics Show 2011) – January 6, 2011 – Technicolor (Euronext Paris: TCH; NYSE: TCH) today announced the launch of its MediaNavi multi-screen content platform designed to make navigating the universe of content simple, seamless, and social for consumers everywhere. MediaNavi serves both cable, telco, and satellite providers as well as consumer electronics manufacturers striving to maximize the value of their connected devices.
Technicolor’s MediaNavi user experience is the first cross-platform/cross-operating system user experience geared towards network service providers and consumer electronics manufacturers, and will be demonstrated for the first time at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“MediaNavi was developed to bring the real service power of networks to devices such as tablets, set-top boxes, and mobile devices enabling consumers to discover new content, share their discovery with their social network and consume content in a rich and immersive manner,” said Frederic Rose, Chief Executive Officer of Technicolor.
MediaNavi stimulates consumers to discover and enjoy content in a more simple and seamless manner via advanced metadata techniques combined with MediaNavi’s new multi-screen, touch enabled interface. These techniques also enable a backstage view into the content details in a “TV first” friendly manner that keeps the detail on the MediaNavi device and the main programming on the consumer’s big screen TV.
Mr. Rose further commented, “With our near 100 year history of serving content creators and studios worldwide, always with an emphasis on image quality, the power of metadata is something Technicolor truly understands. Leveraging metadata to power the user experience in a new manner is a unique goal of MediaNavi. Another is to deliver MediaNavi as a cross platform, device agnostic solution that operators can deploy quickly, while utilizing many of their legacy set-top-box devices in the process.”
As more home and portable devices become Internet connected, cloud-based solutions such as MediaNavi help consumers enjoy a more robust yet simplified experience. MediaNavi is available for trial in the Spring of 2011.
