This showcase app has been presented at the Anga event 2014. Together with our partner Divitel we made this app, that includes several live video streams (HLS), between which the user can switch. The app gives the experience of a “live TV channel” app.

ART TV Special Project

ART TV

 

People’s Playground

With ArtTV we change the big screen into a painting. In this way we bring the art experience from the museum into the living room. The ArtTV app is connected with databases of huge popular musea, like The Dutch Rijksmuseum.

WHY A TV APPBOX?

The existing Smart TV App market is fragmented into a half dozen immature platforms. Most of these platforms do not allow for convenient development of TV apps. We expect a further wave of technology developments, mostly driven by the companies that started the mobile app revolution. It is increasingly challenging to keep up with all these developments.

WHAT’S THE TV APPBOX?

In the past few years, we gained extensive experience in developing Smart TV apps, bundling these in the framework we refer to as the TV AppBox. The TV AppBox enables us to accelerate development and lower cost of maintenance. Providing full service TV apps that fulfill the multi-platform requirements, including HBB TV.

WE ARE CONNECTING BRANDS WITH CONSUMERS

by building the TV home app experience for Smart TV, mobile and beyond
