IBC 2010 – Hall 1, Stand A81a. Aprico Solutions is responding to the increased enthusiasm for three-screen services with the launch of new products suitable for running on the TV, PC, mobile or iPad.
Supported by the leading German publisher Axel Springer, Aprico offers personal TV channels, which brings together broadcast TV, VOD services and over-the-top internet content.
For PC, the commercially available watchmi plug-in for Windows Media Center is a prime example of the application possibilities of the APRICO technology on show at IBC.
The Philips subsidiary will for the first time exhibit the Aprico solution pre-integrated into DTV solutions and STBs platforms from leading technology providers. It means the technology will be readily available to platform operators, substantially reducing the time to market.
Alongside Aprico is Philips uWand remote control technology that uses touch technology with direct pointing and gesture control.
Integration into TV hardware has now been improved with a new ‘single beacon’ to receive signal from the remote.
