Immersion Corporation Launches Solution for Adding Haptics to Video and Ad Content

Immersion Corporation announced that the company has launched TouchSense Engage, its groundbreaking software solution for enhancing mobile video with tactile effects. Creating a multi-sensory, immersive entertainment experience, TouchSense Engage enables video content creators and advertisers to add a limitless range of touch sensations, from the gentle rumbling of a car motor in a driving scene to the powerful swoosh of a helicopter propeller, to mobile entertainment and advertising content. The trend of second screen viewing is evolving, and mobile and tablet devices are becoming more of a primary source for enjoying video content. This unlocks the opportunity for content creators and advertisers to adopt emerging technology innovations from the mobile industry to create a new experience for consumers. User studies have established that consumers respond favorably to the tactile video experience - participants rate the quality of the experience higher and express a greater intent to share the content with friends and family. Additionally, users test well for brand recall and completed views of the ad or video trailer. As a part of this launch, Immersion has partnered with Slate magazine to enable ads 'Enhanced with Tactile Effects' to run on Slate Magazine's Android app. The TouchSense Engage solution offers software tools for video content producers, applications developers and advertisers to incorporate tactile technology into the mobile experience, including: Creation: Immersion provides authoring tools that are compatible with industry standard audio and video editing environments to allow for the design and creation of a haptic file for the piece of content. Distribution: The haptic file is packaged for distribution via existing terrestrial and cloud based video distribution models. Playback: The TouchSense Engage software development kit (SDK) is easily integrated into applications and content networks. The SDK enables the application to decode the haptic file and synchronize the tactile effects with the audio/visual content for playback. Tactile video and tactile ads created by TouchSense Engage are currently available only on Android-based devices.
