To enable video operators to provide a consistent look and feel as consumers navigate and manage linear and on-demand content across mobile, PC, tablet and TV screens, SeaChange has introduced its Nitro multi-screen user interface software. SeaChange says a major multiple system operator (MSO) is the first Nitro customer with an initial deployment planned for later this year.

SeaChange Nitro is the consumer face of multi-screen video, leveraging HTML5 to give users intuitive features and functionality for controlling video content on any screen they choose. Key Nitro features include support for linear and on-demand video viewing, multi-room DVR, virtual channels, TV listings, bookmarking, search and recommendation, and handheld-as-a-remote capability, the latter transforming enabled mobile devices into in-home remote controls. The Nitro experience transcends devices, allowing operators to maintain a common look and feel across any screen their subscribers use.

Nitro blurs the line between television and social media with support for “virtual parties,” whereby users can enjoy a common VOD experience from different locations by communicating, sharing comments and inviting others to participate.

SeaChange will demonstrate Nitro at The Cable Show, June 14-16 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
