COINCIDENT ANNOUNCES SCREENSYNC TV TECHNOLOGY
New Solution Allows Companies To Create Interactive Experiences For Viewers That Synchronize Their Tablets With Shows They Are Watching On Their Televisions LAS VEGAS, 2012 International CES – January 9, 2012 – Coincident - the San Francisco-based technology company that powers the video web - today announced ScreenSync TV, a proprietary new technology that enables video providers such as cable companies, broadcast networks, content partners and technology companies to engage television viewers in an experience on a tablet that is complimentary to, and synchronized with, a television show they are watching. The ScreenSync TV technology makes it possible for companies to build deeply interactive viewing experiences such as offering bonus videos and photo galleries, serving-up relevant games and quizzes and sparking comments and conversation via popular social networks. Additionally, businesses can generate revenues by delivering more engaging advertisements or offering viewers the ability to shop for things they see on the show. ScreenSync TV is unique in that it offers direct, synchronized control between a tablet and television set, allowing users to avoid the often problematic automatic content recognition feature embedded within competitive products in the marketplace. The solution provides enormous advantages to content owners, increasing viewer engagement, time spent viewing and transactions. For TV viewers, ScreenSync TV offers unprecedented access to contextual information as well as the ability to navigate through video experiences and always return to where they left off in their television show. “ScreenSync TV is the future for video infrastructure providers, both with the companion app capability and with supplying the cloud-based systems that deliver the ancillary content,” said David Kaiser, Coincident founder and CEO. “We are currently engaging in talks with potential partners and expect full solutions for consumers powered by ScreenSync TV later this year.” Coincident is offering demos of ScreenSync TV in a private suite at the Aria during the 2012 International CES.
