Comigo Launches New Games Center

News Image
Comigo will demonstrate new services for the pay-TV market, designed to increase viewer engagement and boost operators' revenue streams, at TV Connect 2015.

During the show, Comigo will launch its Games Center, an interactive gaming offering designed for the TV screen. It will also show further expansion of its WatchApps family of interactive applications, allowing pay-TV operators to deliver an immersive experience to viewers, based on the content they are watching.

"The theme at this year's TV Connect is monetising TV Everywhere, and that is exactly what we intend to demonstrate," said Motty Lentzitzky, CEO, Comigo. "Comigo offers a multiscreen platform which enables pay-TV operators to differentiate their services and excite their subscribers, and as a result enjoy new revenue streams. We welcome operators who are looking to set up a new TV service, or upgrade their existing one, to get a sneak peek of our cutting-edge Games Center and WatchApps, which bring new levels of interactivity and engagement to the TV experience."

The Games Center is part of Comigo's home entertainment solution delivered via its HEVC/4K Android-based STB. Through the Games Center, operators can deliver a variety of interactive games to their subscribers, such as action, adventure, racing, strategy, and arcade, as well as multiplayer games, enabling viewers to socialise with friends. The games can be played either by using Comigo's Game Pad or the TV remote control.

In addition, Comigo will demonstrate an upgraded version of its WatchApps, an advanced content-related engagement solution. Comigo's WatchApps are now delivered via an updated user interface, improving user navigation and engagement. WatchApps include movie reviews, access to shows' Facebook and Twitter profiles, "What to Watch": Comigo's personal and social recommendation, "Who is Watching What?": allowing viewers to check what their friends are watching, e-commerce, song detection, sports stats and most popular channels.

The Engagement solution enables pay-TV operators to quickly develop, control, and roll out interactive applications ('WatchApps'), based on the content the viewer is watching, whether live TV, VOD, or internet-based content, in a simple and non-intrusive way, to every screen. The Engagement solution is based on:
• An open SDK, designed to simplify the WatchApps development
• An admin tool that allows the operator to fully control and manage the WatchApps
• A presentation layer, which allows the viewer to access the relevant WatchApps and engage with content while watching it.

Comigo will be at stand 19 at TV Connect 2015.
