Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 4, 2008
tvCompass, a provider of digital media remote products, today announced click365(sm), a new content platform for WiFi enabled second screen devices, targeting the broadband "connected home" user. As a content aggregator and distributor of mobile phone type content, tvCompass supports applications and services such as an electronic program guide (EPG) for TV listings, email and text messaging, mobile Internet and search content, casual games, shopping, advertising and interactive TV.
tvCompass has created click365 as a cross-platform content; services and applications solution to enable partnering companies to utilize existing content standards and application formats to quickly move content onto the network. Examples of popular industry formats supported may include Microsoft Compact Framework, WAP mobile (Wireless Application Protocol), RSS, Java, Flash and web services interfaces. click365 supports both free and premium payment models for user content using a micropayment transaction solution.
"The click365 content platform is essentially an eco-system for the delivery and monetization of partner content, and enables digital media and Internet companies to expand their reach into the broadband home. Our unique solution provides a simple billing model to create a revenue generating opportunity for all partners in the value chain," stated Edward J. Zylka, CEO of tvCompass Inc.
Traditional WiFi enabled, IP connected devices are constrained by a mobile phone LCD screen and keyboard entry system. tvCompass is launching its new service for a category of flexible wireless "smart" advanced home theater remotes, with future opportunities to target other WiFi product categories including dual mode mobile phones, music players and even networked TVs.
"We're thrilled to bring Veveo into the heart of the living room with tvCompass," said Mike Koenig, VP Sales, Veveo. "By partnering with tvCompass, we can now give consumers a cool and easy way to connect with the web to find, browse, share and view the content they love -- like Wikipedia's 9 million articles – right from the comfort of their sofa. This is an important step as we fulfill our mission of bringing Veveo to consumers whenever and wherever they want it."
Various partners in the entertainment, media, and content distribution markets such as PayPal, Yellowbrix and Amazon, are also supported with the click365 service.
"The click365 service is an outstanding example of how to create a targeted mobile service offering exactly what people need," said Mikael Krogius, CEO, Winwap Technologies. "click365 offers information that people want to access when they are not in front of their PC but have a mobile device, like a SmartRemote with WiFi connectivity and WinWAP browser, in their hands."
