Canal Digital Kabel Selects Rovi Search and Recommendations Services

Rovi Corporation announced Canal Digital Kabel plans to standardize on Rovi Search and Recommendations Services for its "T-We" entertainment portal. Rovi's intuitive and predictive search and recommendations capabilities will play an important role in making it easy for subscribers to quickly discover entertainment they'll enjoy from Canal Digital Kabel's extensive video-on-demand (VOD) catalog. Rovi will be showcasing Search and Recommendations Services at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) at Hall 5, Stand A31. IBC takes place in Amsterdam, September 12-16.

Rovi Corporation Introduces Cloud-Based Multiscreen Entertainment Guide

Rovi Corporation unveiled its new HTML5-based, multiplatform Rovi Guide, designed to allow service providers and device manufacturers around the globe to rapidly create and deploy next-generation entertainment discovery and monetization solutions across multiple screens. Rovi's latest guide is expected to enable the integration of Rovi's suite of discovery services that feature advanced search and recommendations, natural-language interaction, extensive entertainment metadata, and more. These differentiated services are designed to help promote a more personalized entertainment experience that engages users and increases content consumption. In addition to innovative services, Rovi Guide is also expected to provide new insights to customers based on multiscreen consumption patterns and behaviors. It is anticipated that customers can use this viewing data and intelligence to help further refine services and inform content merchandising and promotions. In addition to being able to support services such as search and recommendations from Rovi, the flexible Rovi Guide framework, based on open-standards, is also designed to streamline the integration of third-party applications and services. This capability is expected to help service providers quickly on-board additional value-added offerings for subscribers such as home security or interest-specific apps for weather, streaming video or music. The new Rovi Guide is expected to be available for evaluation and testing by service providers and device manufacturers in Europe and the Americas in October and ready for integration in 2015.

Rovi Corporation Introduces Personalized Discovery Solution in Europe

Rovi Corporation announced the European rollout of Rovi Personalized Discovery Solution, a suite of services designed to increase content consumption and delight consumers with a dynamic discovery experience that may be tailored to the needs and tastes of the individual viewer. The new Personalized Discovery Solution includes a predictive search and recommendations engine, conversational interface technologies and Rovi's database of international entertainment information, editorial and images. Rovi Personalized Discovery Solution also includes Rovi Conversation Services that allow users to search and discover content using naturally spoken language. Built on knowledge graph-based semantic technologies, Rovi Conversation Services create intuitive ways for consumers to discover and access huge libraries of programming, bringing a next-generation user experience to television and video applications. Speech-driven interfaces typically use speech-to-text conversion, which maps to a menu or keywords for navigation. In contrast, conversational interfaces advance that experience by allowing consumers to ask questions and have a natural back-and-forth dialog in order to find the content that interests them in much the same way they would interact with another individual.
