Colombes, France – March 28th, 2017– SoftAtHome, a software provider of operator CPE devices enabling convergent services for the digital home, is proud to have been shortlisted twice for this year’s Connies Awards. SoftAtHome is shortlisted in the Contribution to user experience category in partnership with Orange for TVLights and in the Video technology Hero category for its Video 360 on TV solution.
With SoftAtHome’s Video 360 on TV, end-users can enjoy full 360° Video on a TV set with an intuitive user experience by simply using their remote control to navigate within the video. Based on SoftAtHome’s next-generation software SOP8, this TV-based 360° video experience is also enriched with unique light ambience technology as well as the latest audio object technologies to deliver the ultimate immersive experience. It has been successfully deployed in several trials with tier-one operators around the world since September 2016.
By associating the TV set with the latest technology for lights, one can now enjoy a breakthrough immersive experience in the living room. TVlights drives connected lights in real-time according to the content watched on TV, thanks to the algorithm developed and directly embedded into the set-top box. The algorithm computes in real-time all the colours displayed on every section of the TV screen. It then controls the lights according to their position in the room, to the rhythm, and the colour flow of the content watched on TV. It brings a new level of excitement and immersion, transforming the visual experience like 5.1 surround sound transformed the TV audio experience a few years back.
The Connies brings together the established UK Connected Consumer Awards from Mediatel and the internationally based Connected TV Awards from Videonet, now part of Mediatel Events. More than ever they recognise innovation and the emerging best practice from across all sectors of the media landscape, showcasing initiatives that meet the needs of leading media businesses and practitioners in delivering value to the connected consumer.
