Softel announced today that it will take part in the TV of Tomorrow (TVoT) show taking place in New York City on December 10th, 2012. Now in its sevenths year, TVoT is a dialog-driven event that aims to engage all the players of the rapidly changing world of TV interactivity. This year’s event will aim to deliver productive exchanges of ideas to identify current trends and explore the future of interactivity and will offer expert-led workshops to help attendees acquire practical skills for rapid implementation.
Softel has long standing expertise in interactivity with innovative solutions that allow viewers to interact via a set-top-box, tablet, mobile, or smart TV. Its versatile platform, MediaSphere™ Bridge, has recently been expanded to offer a broader range of content synchronization technologies. The system connects to broadcast automation from any major manufacturer and, thanks to Softel’s unique relationships with multiple Automatic Content Recognition (ACR) system providers, is now able to offer either in-broadcast triggers or ACR solutions to facilitate interactivity between the TV and smart TVs or second screens.
At TVoT NYC, Softel will be showcasing MediaSphere Bridge and demonstrating how the company’s extensive knowledge of broadcast TV automation systems has enabled the unique flexibility this platform offers.
