Massive Interactive to Unveil End-to-End Multi-Screen Platform for TV Everywhere at CES 2014

Massive Interactive Inc. (OTCQB:HUGE), a leader in platform software and design for multiscreen entertainment, today announced the launch of Massivision™ Managed Video Platform (MVP), a new hosted multiscreen video delivery platform for ‘TV Everywhere’. MVP builds upon the current video content management and multi-screen user interface (UI) components of the Massivision™ technology suite already successfully deployed with leading Tier 1 video service providers such as BT Vision, Deutsche Telekom, Channel 5, Telstra and SKY NZ.

MVP provides a fully scalable end-to-end solution for content owners as well as all the necessary pre-integrated third party services required for operating an on demand video service, including encoding, cloud storage and Content Delivery Network (CDN) to digital rights management and billing, by effectively offering pre-integration services with partners such as Amazon, Widevine and eWay. MVP utilizes industry standards CableLabs, TV Anytime and VAST.

One of the key features of MVP is the successful Massivision™ MDK (Multi-device Development Kit), which delivers the “write once, deploy everywhere” promise for fast and cost-effective reach to multiple consumer devices, including all major smart TVs, game consoles, tablets and smartphones. For clients with lean design budgets, highly customizable device UI templates developed by Massive’s award-winning design team are also provided.

“TV Everywhere providers struggle to ensure brand and user experience consistency across a host of connected consumer devices,” said Ron Downey, the CEO of Massive Interactive. “Employing the multi-device development kit, MVP offers an intelligent and elegant solution for multi-screen UI portability and consistency across all commonly used manufacturer’s devices – from a single core application. This feature differentiates MVP from other products in the marketplace.”

MVP’s management and merchandizing system uses an adaptable orchestration architecture enhanced by an Enterprise Service Bus and Integrated Services Layer, enabling simplified workflow management and streamlined integrations with other third party and legacy system components.

“The complexity of multi-screen services, fragmentation of the connected device landscape and high development and maintenance costs are significant challenges for video service providers of all sizes,” said Mr. Downey. “New offerings are often out of date by the time they hit the market. With MVP, we are able to reduce platform development costs and forward operating expenses, as well as increase speed to market with a robust and scalable foundation that meets the current and future needs of our clients’ product roadmaps.”

The first company to utilize MPV will be Dendy Direct, Dendy Cinemas’ innovative new service offering movies to rent or purchase as well as TV content to rent or purchase, across multiple devices. Due to go live in April this year, Dendy Cinemas will also be the first independent cinema chain in Australia to offer a video-on-demand service.

Greg Hughes, CEO of Dendy Cinemas, noted, “Dendy has a growing loyal community and strong reputation for delivering film choice and quality content. Expanding our offering to a new video-on-demand service will allow us to meet more of our customer’s entertainment needs. We selected Massive to help us develop and deploy Dendy Direct based on their reputation for deploying large scale multi-screen entertainment as well as their significant expertise in creating innovative user experience design that will help promote our brand identity to our audience.”

As a fully managed SaaS offering, MVP provides an enterprise-grade solution and a rapid route to market for non-broadcast content owners and distributors that have little or no internal development resources. The platform enables branded multi-screen video entertainment services to be up and running within a few months.

Mr. Downey, CEO of Massive Interactive, continued, “Dendy Direct is an ideal example of a traditional cinema chain known for its premium brand and brilliantly curated film catalog adopting smart TV Everywhere technology in order to grow its business through a broader engagement with its customers in their homes, and on the go.”

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busine...

Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable? Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, will answer these questions and demonstrate techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances ...
The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated. But… securing CICD best practices is an emerging, essential, yet little understood practice for DevOps teams and their Cloud Service Providers. The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...

The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
Organizations do not need a Big Data strategy; they need a business strategy that incorporates Big Data. Most organizations lack a road map for using Big Data to optimize key business processes, deliver a differentiated customer experience, or uncover new business opportunities. They do not understand what’s possible with respect to integrating Big Data into the business model.
