Accedo takes next multiscreen step with TV Everywhere product intro

Accedo, which has deployed numerous multiscreen applications for Tier 1 MVPDs, has taken the next logical step and introduced a TV Everywhere (TVE) solution that, a company press release said, "enables pay TV operators and media companies to launch new multiscreen services across a range of connected devices more quickly than ever before."

Accedo is unveiling the new product this week at CES in Las Vegas.

The TV Everywhere product integrates content distribution and management platforms with pay TV applications on any connected device, the company said.

"Over the past years, we have deployed numerous multiscreen applications with tier one operators and media companies. Customers and partners have repeatedly asked us for an attractive application-centric TVE solution with off-the-shelf high performance products," Accedo CEO Michael Lantz said in the news release.

The solution becomes application-specific when launched through Accedo's AppView application management product, the company said.

"We believe that this will complement current products on the market and will provide the most attractive combination of time to market and solution flexibility, while at the same time fulfilling customer requirements on functionality and performance," Lantz added.

Among its capabilities, the new product enables pre-integrated second screen experience with device-to-device communication and control and integrates with "major TV Everywhere ecosystem partners," the press release said. It also allows social networking integration and supports ad network management via Accedo's AdMediate ad network management product.
