VisualOn livre la télévision mobile vers Android pour Swisscom

SANTA CLARA, Californie, 20 novembre 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- VisualOn, Inc., une société de logiciels multimédias qui permet la vidéo et l'audio de haute qualité à travers des périphériques connectés, a annoncé aujourd'hui qu'elle a remporté Swisscom en tant que client. VisualOn permet au fournisseur de télécommunications de fournir du contenu TV en direct et à la demande sur les périphériques Android en Suisse. Swisscom a intégré OnStream MediaPlayer+ de VisualOn, une solution qui permet une lecture de haute qualité à travers des périphériques, dans son application Swisscom TV Android, qui apporte le meilleur du divertissement à un éventail d'appareils connectés encore plus large.

La consommation mondiale de vidéos mobiles augmentera de 90 pour cent entre 2011 et 2016, selon Cisco. Pendant ce temps, les périphériques Android continuent de dominer la part de marché et la multitude de téléphones Android présente un défi unique pour les solutions de mise à l'échelle afin de fournir des contenus multimédias à travers tous les périphériques. La technologie économique de VisualOn permet à Swisscom d'offrir à ses clients une haute qualité audio et une lecture visuelle indépendamment des différents formats, protocoles de streaming ou capacités matérielles. Cette application permet à Swisscom d'élargir sa plateforme média robuste pour offrir à présent 80 canaux de programmation et plus de 3 000 événements sportifs par an aux utilisateurs Android suisses en déplacement.

« Le marché international continue de faire face au défi croissant de la fragmentation des périphériques tout en essayant de fournir des médias en déplacement : c'est là que nous nous démarquons », a déclaré Yang Cai, président-directeur général de VisualOn. « Nous réduisons efficacement la livraison de médias à travers des périphériques pour nos clients comme Swisscom, afin qu'ils puissent fournir une expérience de visualisation riche et transparente pour les utilisateurs du monde entier ».

« Nous avons sélectionné VisualOn en tant que partenaire sur la base du succès qu'il a démontré pour surmonter la fragmentation des plateformes », a déclaré Stefan Schmidlin, chef de produit chez Swisscom. « La performance de OnStream MediaPlayer nous permet d'offrir du streaming de télévision en direct de qualité à nos clients sur les périphériques Android de tous types et de toutes tailles ».

L'application gratuite Swisscom TV est maintenant disponible pour toutes les marques de smartphones Android, ainsi que pour les iPhone et iPad. Une application TV séparée est également disponible pour les périphériques mobiles Windows. Un abonnement payant Swisscom TV est nécessaire pour utiliser les fonctions de pause en direct et de transmission en différé.
