Discover on Mobile, Play on TV with Ooyala XTV Connect
Informa Telecoms and Media reported that there will be 1.8 billion connected TV devices globally by 2016. Ooyala XTV Connect presents an easy way for publishers to take advantage of that fast-growing footprint and deliver a lean-back TV experience with video discovered on a mobile phone or tablet. With XTV Connect, viewers can send content from their iOS or Android phone or tablet directly to tens of millions of connected TVs and companion devices like Apple TVs, with the touch of a finger. By discovering content on their tablets or phones and watching it on the TV, users free up their mobile device for second-screen activity.
XTV Connect leverages DLNA technology, which comes preinstalled on most connected TVs, and AirPlay for Apple TV. XTV Connect dramatically simplifies the process for delivering content to connected TVs, giving media companies more advertising inventory in the living room. It is an integrated part of the Ooyala technology stack, so publishers can deploy XTV Connect rapidly to begin seeing the benefits of mobile-to-TV delivery.
Delivering Premium, Protected Content to All Screens
Today the company also introduced Ooyala Rights Locker, a highly scalable entitlement system that extends Ooyala's monetization capabilities for customers that need to manage granular permissions and advanced usage rules for linear and VOD content on a per-user basis. Rights Locker integrates with a publisher's subscriber management system to grant rights to either an individual asset, such as a live event or movie, or a bundle of assets such as a TV series or linear channel. Ooyala's authorization system integrates Rights Locker to enable customers to manage consumers' access to any encrypted, multi-DRM protected, or simply authorized streams.
For media companies and broadcasters requiring secure multi-screen delivery of fully protected content, Ooyala offers robust content protection to support all primary business and transaction models such as authenticated ad-supported content, subscription, rental, purchase and pay-per-view. Ooyala's multi-DRM support meets the strict needs of major studios and enables premium content providers to deploy their complete range of service offerings across all consumer devices including PCs, mobile and tablet devices, connected TVs, set-top boxes, gaming consoles and companion streaming products.
