Akoo International has been awarded new patents in global markets – including Canada, Australia, and Israel – for its interactive technology, which allows smartphones and tablets to search and select on-demand television content via mobile app or text messaging. Akoo already holds patents for the technology in the United States, China, Russia and Mexico.

Akoo’s technology currently powers the company’s out-of-home television network available throughout the United States in 161 "Akoo Pavilions" at premier shopping malls.

In addition to making on-demand content selections using their personal mobile devices, visitors to Akoo Pavilions can access free Wi-Fi services, connect with friends via Facebook and Twitter, and receive mobile coupons and exclusive special offers. Viewers spend an average of 20 minutes per visit seated in front of Akoo’s programming, Nielsen research certifies, with an on-demand transaction occurring every four seconds on the network.

Akoo’s technology supports plug-ins for on-demand and subscription billing services and includes advanced ad delivery capabilities that drive targeted advertising based on individual profiles, rather than geography, household, or demographic.
