ActiveVideo Unveils 'CloudTV Access' Developer Program to Optimize Next-Gen TV User Experiences

CloudTV Cloud-Rendering Platform Delivers the Same Advanced User Experience to Any Screen

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ActiveVideo Networks™ today announced the launch of its "CloudTV Access™" developer program, an initiative designed to accelerate the design and deployment of advanced HTML5 user experiences for millions of users on CloudTV™-enabled Smart TVs, set-top boxes and other CE devices.

The CloudTV Access program leverages the "write-once, deploy-everywhere" content creation environment of ActiveVideo's CloudTV™ platform to cut app time-to-market by as much as 80% for connected device manufacturers and virtual service providers, as well as cable and IPTV operators. Developing on the CloudTV platform is easy, but the program is designed to help developers who are experienced with HTML5 development on the Web make the transition to television while providing them with the CloudTV tools and resources needed to quickly create cross-platform HTML5 user experiences that can be scalably streamed to any device.

CloudTV is the best-performing, lowest-cost platform for the multiscreen delivery of advanced user interfaces.  The latest version, CloudTV H5™, leverages HTML5 browsers in remote servers to render the most advanced user experiences in the cloud and stream them uniformly to connected TVs, Blu-ray players, tablets and smartphones, as well as set-top boxes ranging from the oldest QAM- to the newest IP-based devices.

ActiveVideo Networks will highlight the features of CloudTV H5 and the CloudTV Access program during a special presentation as part of the Developer University at the 2013 CES.  The ActiveVideo presentation will be conducted from 11:30 – Noon on Thursday, January 10 in Room S228 of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

"Our ability to create the ideal mix of device and cloud resources has resulted in a platform that completely changes the economics of television content creation," said David McElhatten, senior vice president, studio and services for ActiveVideo Networks.  "CloudTV H5 ensures that developers have the fastest-possible development environment for rich, low-bandwidth user experiences on any Smart TV, connected device or STB." 

A two-stage program, the CloudTV Access program begins with consultation sessions between the developer and the ActiveVideo development team and access to development tools and services, APIs and JavaScript libraries, as well as assistance in creating an initial application as specified by the developer.  Partners who continue with the program receive priority access to new releases and tools, preferred roles at ActiveVideo developer gatherings, access to the CloudTV Premium Development Kit, and the opportunity for their apps to be showcased at trade shows and other public ActiveVideo events. More information and registration materials for the CloudTV Access program are available at Developer.ActiveVideo.com

CloudTV is available on more than 10 million devices in the United States and abroad with Cablevision Systems, Ziggo, Oceanic Time Warner Cable and other operators, as well as on Philips-brand NetTVs, and is powering advanced user experiences for Net2TV, a virtual service provider. ActiveVideo also has announced that Comcast is using CloudTV in an enhanced video-on-demand (VOD) user experience trial.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the data to create additional revenue streams, such as improved warranties or premium features. Or slash...
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
