Fincons Group to present innovative platform to accelerate Next Gen TV roll-out at CES 2020

Fincons Group, a leading IT business consultancy, will be presenting its new Smart Digital Platform (SDP) designed to accelerate Next Gen TV roll-out for media and broadcast businesses at CES this January.

The SDP introduces a revolutionary publishing tool that redefines application development as it enables automatic generation of applications, thus accelerating Hybrid TV and OTT service delivery. The framework distributes functionalities in logical “SMART” modules that form the basis for Hybrid TV solutions. It enables Broadcaster Apps to have advanced monetization models through Addressable Advertising, provides contextual information through a Now/Next and Channel dashboard and encourages greater viewer engagement via an Electronic Program Guide (EPG), video on demand sections and catch-up content. Fincons’ SDP uniquely also features full automation of the Hybrid TV asset preparation chain. It is the first platform that is entirely compatible with both European HbbTV and new US ATSC 3.0 standards, a feature that derives from the company’s unique pioneering role in the development of both standards.

At CES broadcasters will be able to see the platform in action in deployed, live applications that leverage the TV personalization potential of AI.

Fincons Group joins Deutsche TV-Plattform

Fincons Group, a leading IT management consultancy for the Media & Broadcast sector, through its German subsidiary Fincons.DE GmbH, joins Deutsche TV-Plattform, the German non-profit association whose purpose, since its foundation in 1990, is to introduce, disseminate and further develop digital Television in Germany.

Fincons Group has played a pivotal role in the development of HbbTV technology in Europe – the standard aimed at harmonising the broadcast and broadband delivery of entertainment services to consumers through connected TVs, set-top boxes and multiscreen devices - and has contributed to define best-practice in the new US ATSC 3.0 standard. The company is thus well placed to make a significant contribution to Deutsche TV-Plattform, while continuing to scout for new broadcast technologies and to acquire new skills in the field by working with major players in Italy and Europe.

Andre Prahl, CEO of the Deutsche TV-Plattform: "We are very pleased to see Fincons Group joining Deutsche TV-Plattform. This underlines the relevance of the Smart Media topics and projects we are pushing forward - in particular the minimum requirements for HbbTV-2 devices, which pave the way for new HbbTV services from broadcasters, and our initiative to harmonise metadata requirements for the distribution of audiovisual content".
