ANT enters multiscreen market

Cambridge-based software and services provider ANT is launching Galio Move, extending the company into the multiscreen sphere.

Galio Move makes it possible for users to stream live and recorded content directly from the STB or TV via Wi-Fi to their companion device anywhere in the home.

Users can use the tablet to watch the same live programme as the main TV in a different room, watch a separate live programme using the second TV device tuner or view recorded content stored on the STB or TV hard drive.

“The popularity of companion devices such as tablet devices and smartphones just adds to a massive opportunity,” said Simon Woodward, CEO of ANT. “ANT Galio Move fundamentally changes the TV experience by delivering TV functionality direct to the companion device without disrupting the main TV.”

ANT Galio Move will be showcased for the first time at the IBC show in Amsterdam, 9 -13 September 2011.
