SANTA CLARA, Kalifornien, 20. November 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- VisualOn, Inc., ein Multimedia-Softwareunternehmen, das hochqualitatives Video und Audio über verbundene Geräte ermöglicht, gab heute bekannt, man habe Swisscom als Kunden gewonnen. VisualOn ermöglicht es dem Telecom-Anbieter, Live- und On-Demand-TV-Inhalt auf Android-Geräten in der Schweiz bereitzustellen.

Der Verbrauch von mobilem Video wird gemäß Cisco weltweit zwischen 2011 und 2016 um 90 Prozent zunehmen.

Mit dieser Anwendung kann Swisscom seine solide Medienplattform ausbauen und den Schweizer Android-Nutzern jetzt 80 Kanäle mit Programmen und über 3.000 Sportveranstaltungen pro Jahr unterwegs anbieten.

„Der internationale Markt ist weiterhin mit den zunehmenden Herausforderungen der Gerätefragmentierung und der Bereitstellung von Medien unterwegs konfrontiert - dies ist genau der Bereich, in dem wir wachsen", sagt Yang Cai, CEO von VisualOn. „Wir skalieren für unsere Kunden, wie z. B. Swisscom, die Medienbereitstellung effizient über alle Geräte hinweg, damit sie ihren Nutzern in der ganzen Welt ein umfasendes und nahtloses Seherlebnis bieten können."

„Wir haben VisualOn als Partner aufgrund des nachgewiesenen Erfolgs bei der Überwindung der Plattformfragmentation ausgewählt", erklärt Stefan Schmidlin, Produktmanager von Swisscom. „Die Leistung des OnStream MediaPlayer+ erlaubt es uns, unseren Kunden qualitativ hochwertiges Live-TV-Streaming für Android-Geräte aller Art und Größe bereitzustellen."

Die kostenlose App von Swisscom TV ist jetzt für alle Marken von Android-Smartphones sowie für iPhones und iPads verfügbar. Für Mobilgeräte mit Windows steht eine gesonderte TV-App zur Verfügung. Für die Verwendung der Replay- und Live Pause-Funktion ist ein Swisscom TV air Abonnement erforderlich.

There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
