The platform, which was introduced at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show, leverages the flexibility of HTML5 to enable rapid development and delivery of unsurpassed user experiences to any set-top box or connected device. Using the platform, multichannel providers can offer rich, animated "iVOD" experiences that enhance VOD with intelligent search, discovery, and personalization, creating engagement and driving revenues in a multi-screen environment.
The scalable and battle-tested CloudTV H5™ platform utilizes highly-optimized HTML5 browser technology running in remote servers to execute and render complete user experiences in the cloud. The fully-formed user experience is then streamed to the user’s device in a bandwidth-efficient adaptive bit rate video stream. Subscribers control the experience by using their remote controls to send key presses to the remote browser, controlling the application in the same way as they would if it were running locally. Surprisingly, the latency between a customer key press and the UI response is minimal.
This innovative, patented technology makes it possible to create and deliver pixel-accurate applications and user experiences across any digital set top box or connected device. In-home device capabilities are irrelevant to the application designer because the application is fully executed and rendered on the cloud-based server, making it possible to create complex animations and functionality without worrying about device capability. CloudTV H5 can render and stream to thousands of users from a single cloud-based server.
