IBC 2009: IPTV Zone (stand IP126)
The increasing popularity of social media applications such as Twitter and Facebook, at least with journalists and PR folks, means the medium will have a guaranteed audience at IBC 2009.
Stockholm-based Accedo is one of a number of companies to have developed TV friendly versions of the most popular social media sites. Accedo has also developed a concept TV community service, ZapClub.
“Many consumers are interacting on a daily basis with a number of social media applications,” commented Michael Lantz, CEO, Accedo Broadband, “therefore it was a natural step to bring these services to the TV. We believe these will bring an enhanced TV experience to consumer if integrated in an attractive way.”
As a leading developer of causal gaming, Accedo will be launching a number of new games, bringing the total to over 130. A number of new game features will be premiered including Full HD gaming and 3D components using SVG technology.
