  • ACCESS to demonstrate “smarter TV” experiences with TV-centric browser and graphics/UI engine, media sharing, OTT and cloud-based solutions
  • Providing monetization opportunities for the multiscreen market
  • Making multiscreen delivery and the connected home a reality

Oberhausen, Germany, − August 14, 2012 − ACCESS CO., LTD, today announces that it will be returning to IBC this September to showcase its award-winning portfolio of multiscreen solutions. Visitors to the ACCESS IBC stand will see that it has a water-based theme, showing how ACCESS is making it easier than ever for consumers to dive in to the immersive new services launched by operators. On-stand demonstrations include TV-centric browsers, connected TV products, DLNA media sharing, HbbTV technologies, solutions which leverage the cloud and a social network integrated OTT platform. Visitors to the ACCESS stand (14.103) will be able to view solutions which function across a wealth of connected devices while giving operators the opportunity to increase revenues and enrich the consumer experience.

“We will be using IBC as a platform to showcase how we are offering operators and service providers the opportunity to deliver better, bolder and more exciting experiences to viewers across a whole range of devices,” said Dr. Neale Foster, VP of Global Sales IA, ACCESS.

“Through our flexible solutions we are breaking down the barriers that multiple devices can raise by taking an ‘access all areas’ approach – this means that operators, device manufacturers and broadcasters can concentrate on providing consumers with an outstanding end-experience rather than spending too much time or resource solving compatibility or connectivity issues. Visitors to IBC will be able to see how our TV browser, HTML5 solution, home networking products and OTT solutions work together or separately to provide a powerful, simple route to deploying profitable multiscreen strategies.”

On-stand demonstrations will include:

  • NetFront™ Living Connect 3.0 – enables seamless ‘studio-confident’ sharing and playback of pictures, music and video on connected devices.
