TVplus App Reveals Content Click-Through Rates North Of 10% Across Sync-Enabled Programming(November 16, 2011)
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 16, 2011
In a recent data sample taken from the TVplus user base, the Los Angeles based technology company recorded engagement numbers showing an 11% CTR on content spots while consumers watch television with the application. The term spots refers to unique pieces of related content delivered synchronously on a second screen while users watch a broadcast.
The TVplus App for iPad, which was released in late July and is currently enabled for several programs in Primetime, features a core audio synchronization technology that connects a viewers second screen device to their favorite programs on television. The technology has been designed to not only identify a given program, but further maintains a continuous sync to the show, allowing a viewers iPad to know the exact position within a program on television. TVplus will soon be enabled across multiple platforms, including PC/Mac, iPhone and Android devices.
Once connected, TVplus content production toolset, known as the Parallel Editing Tool (PET), delivers a rich, contextual content and media experience for every scene of the show. Viewers can engage with such assets as actor and cast facts, photo galleries, song lyrics, videos, behind the scenes news, trivia and polls, along with a curated Twitter stream that features the best tweets time-stamped to the moment in the show. TVplus is the only service that allows a viewer to watch the original Tweet-stream replayed with a show, even if a viewer has time-shifted the program through DVR. The company has plans to introduce a variety of additional social connection features in upcoming product releases.
Ajay Shah, CEO and co-founder of TVplus stated, Audio Synchronization is an important element for second screen applications, but only so far as you can produce a truly engaging content experience that complements the program. Our click-through rate data is a strong indicator that we are, in fact, driving deeper viewer engagement through our content.
TVplus believes these positive data trends are a result of publishing content spots at the moment theyre most relevant and interesting in the program, thereby providing a direct and immediate outlet for viewers to access additional content related to what was seen on television.
The TVplus technology suite provides the unique capability for LIVE content production around a program, and since its release over the summer, TVplus has engaged with activations for such high-profile events as the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards.
Additionally, TVplus currently powers THE XTRA FACTOR App sponsored by Verizon for both Android tablets and the iPad. In its inaugural season in the U.S., The X Factor, which airs Wednesday and Thursday nights on FOX (8:00pm EST), is produced LIVE.
TVplus is an interactive technology company based in Orange, CA. Co-founded by Ajay Shah and Randy Shiozaki, the TVplus platform uses a proprietary audio technology to identify and sync a viewers Second Screen device to the exact moment within the show. TVplus then delivers relevant contextual and social content related to each scene of the program through our content management product.
TVplus offers the ability to capitalize on the viewer need for more content by integrating relevance, choice, and social connectivity to a television viewing experience. The platform has been created to transform television into a relevant social engagement and companion experience, providing a valuable viewer connection opportunity for both content providers and brand advertisers.
