With the support of Fincons Group, Univision – a major American Spanish-language television network - has developed a new Broadcasting App to enable personalization of viewer experience over both broadband connected and linear TV.The app leverages ATSC 3.0 technology and innovative integrations to provide viewers with dynamic content both via Broadband (OTT) and Broadcast (OTA) connection.
The app enables entirely unprecedented functions for OTA TV, such as the delivery of additional information regarding news anchors in the “Meet the local news team” navigation node, access to QR coded additional content and dynamic local weather forecast. For OTT viewers, the app also provides access to on-demand local news clips.
From a technology perspective this app, which integrates the A3FA Consortium Framework, is one of the first to leverage the ATSC 3.0 standard to deliver enhanced viewing experiences to both connected and unconnected TVs.
