Rovi Introduces HTML 5 Cloud Powered EPG


Rovi is showcasing at CEATEC 2013 its next-generation G-Guide - an HTML5-based electronic programming guide (EPG) designed to make it easier for service providers and consumer electronics manufacturers to bring new features to market, such as intelligent search and recommendations.

"Japan's broadcasting system is migrating to a new service called 'Hybridcast' that is closely tied to browser technology and enables the integration of Internet-based content with traditional broadcast TV," said Michael Buchheim, SVP of Product Management at Rovi. "We believe Rovi's G-Guide HTML provides a cost-effective solution to address this market convergence by making it easier to update and customize programming guides; and deploy new services and features over the Web to applications and devices. We are pleased to deliver a solution that can help our customers take their offerings to the next stage of the digital entertainment experience."

Rovi G-Guide HTML harnesses Rovi's metadata and works with the Rovi Cloud, a web-based platform that makes it easier to deliver recommendations to consumers and personalize the service they receive through their guide. G-Guide HTML features a TV listing grid designed to showcase detailed local listings and view listings in single, one-month or day jump formats. In addition, the guide includes search capabilities that allow the viewer to discover programs by searching by free word, title, category, genre, or cast and crew.

In addition, the guide's Chumoku and Tokushu functions that provide detailed programming information, recommendations, and features Rovi's "six degrees" discovery experience, which makes it easier for viewers to discover new content from across services without scrolling through thousands of programs. Viewers also have the ability to engage in interactive advertising by engaging with in-guide ads powered by Rovi's Advertising Service.

Rovi is showcasing HTML G-Guide this week at CEATEC at the Rovi private exhibition at the Hotel New Otani Makuhari.
