LAS VEGAS, NV, January 07, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Bimand, Inc., a pioneer in emerging smart TV technology, will demonstrate its OnScreen Cloud Technology at the International CES in Las Vegas, January 7-10, 2014. Bimand's OnScreen technology is a cloud-based TV information system that delivers contextual information about what the viewer is watching and will allow the viewer to interact with it through the TV screen. The system offers rich interactive capabilities such as information on demand, shopping, voting, and social networking, all in one place, to enhance cable and internet TV for the ultimate TV experience.
OnScreen technology allows both television program producers and advertisers a unique opportunity to completely engage with their audiences without the need for a second screen device. Viewers will be able to obtain information on-demand such as program history, celebrity biographies, and game and player statistics. The technology also extends the viewers' participation with the program to allow interactive voting and social networking. Its shopping capabilities will let advertisers directly engage with their audiences and will provide viewers both additional information on-demand as well as the ability to purchase the product on the spot or add to a wish list or shopping cart to purchase later. In addition, the solution will deliver valuable viewer insights, preferences, and buying behavior data to broadcasters and advertisers.
OnScreen technology works with Philips' uWand remote control technology for high precision interaction with the smart TV. "uWand's direct pointing technology is designed specifically for use with smart TVs. It delivers the same kind of interaction and intuitive operation of a touch screen device in the convenience of a remote control," said Navin Natoewal, General Manager Media Interaction from Philips. "We are pleased to partner with Bimand to provide precision remote control technology to enhance their OnScreen Cloud offering."
"Today's Smart TVs are not delivering on their full potential due to their lack of content- and context-awareness. OnScreen technology fills that gap to allow for a fully immersive, simple, and intuitive TV viewing experience," said Fadi Albatal, CEO of Bimand. "We are excited about the opportunity to demonstrate our OnScreen technology with Philips. The uWand remote control technology gives us the high precision gesture control capability to complement our OnScreen Cloud offering and deliver on our promise of simplicity."
Demonstrations will take place in the Philips uWand CES Venetian Pallazzo Hospitality Suite. For a demonstration, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
