MEDIA BROADCAST and TEVEO present “connected TV” services at the IBC in Amsterdam

(PresseBox) (Amsterdam, ) On the occasion of the IBC, the European meeting place for decision-makers from the European Media and Entertainment sector in Amsterdam, Media Broadcast and TEVEO are presenting new services for "connected TVs" . From 9 to 13 September 2011, both companies will be demonstrating in a showcase, how broadcasters and content providers can use the options provided by HbbTV to make available and invoice their internet-based media content via a central, device-independent TV portal. The TV portal can be received by all HbbTV compliant CE devices. Viewers are able to access it by activating a satellite or DVB-T barker channel which is provided by Media Broadcast. TV-ID, a service developed by TEVEO, is integrated as the central identification and payment service.

The showcase will be displayed at the Media Broadcast booth 1.B79. (http://www.ibc.org) This is where interested guests can watch a live demonstration of the TV portal.

Andreas Karanas, CEO of TEVEO interactive GmbH says: "Media Broadcast is able to look back on a long history in the media and broadcasting industry and has since this time been an important driving force with regard to technological innovations on this market. As this showcase demonstrates, content providers that would like to make use of TV-ID can, in future, extend their range to all HbbTV compliant CE-devices."

Henrik Rinnert, Head of the business unit TV at Media Broadcast comments: "Through the rapid expansion of HbbTV-compliant devices, a new and highly interesting distribution channel is developing for broadcasters and content providers, whereby "paid content" is playing an increasingly important role."
