Austrian IPTV service provider Ocilion has teamed up with Austrian content discovery specialist XroadMedia to integrate the Ncanto content discovery and recommendation solution into Oocilion’s IPTV platform for service providers.
Customers receive personalised recommendations from the linear-TV line-up, replay services and video-on-demand libraries. Different algorithms and engines from XroadMedia recommend content to individual users based on their viewing behaviour and ratings made for different titles.
In addition, users receive suggestions for content that was viewed by other customers of the respective service provider in the ‘Most Viewed’ category, as well as for titles that were positively rated by their entire audience.
As the first customer, Salzburg AG has already launched the solution for its customers; other service providers are to follow in the coming months. Available immediately are content recommendations for the Ocilion on-premise solution. This will be followed by the implementation of Ncanto into the Ocilion cloud service.
