Fuugo TV And Video Application Wins TV Innovation Award

Mobile television and video technologies provider Axel Technologies has announced that the Fuugo TV and video application won the Mobile TV category at this year's TV Innovation Awards Ceremony, held in conjunction with the TV 3.0 Conference at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel Los Angeles.
Ian Weightman, President of IMS Research, said: "The goal of the TV Innovation Awards is to recognise the most forward thinking companies who are creating products and services that are driving the new TV paradigm. With more than 140 entries received for this year's awards, competition has been intense. Fuugo stood out in the Mobile TV category because of its commercial potential, level of innovation, and likelihood of consumer adoption as assessed by an independent awards panel."
Petri Kalske, CEO of Axel Technologies, said: "Fuugo is changing the face of modern TV and video viewing on tablets, smartphones and other rapidly-evolving portable devices. This is the TV-everywhere experience people have been waiting for, enhanced with compelling personalisation and smart content discovery.
"Winning the Mobile TV category at the TV Innovation Awards confirms our strategic decision to focus on usability and end user experience. Social media integration and best-in-class technical features are supporting these main targets. Fuugo already provides a great new way to watch TV and video, but this is just the beginning of our long-term product plans for this space."
