Media Distillery has won the Gold Award in the “Contribution to User Experience-TV & Video” category at the 2018 Connies Awards with the “Next Generation TV and Replay Experience”, consisting of EPG Correction, Binge Markers and Episodic Images.
The professional jury especially valued the practicality of the product: “It addresses practical problems, like identifying the actual start and end times of programmes or extracting representative images from different episodes. This can really improve the user experience,” said William Cooper, founder and Chief Executive at Informitv.
Next Generation TV and Replay Experience seeks to solve the most pressing consumer frustrations in relation to watching television programs in a replay environment and enables television operators to optimise these replay environments for a better consumer experience.
The Connies Awards champions innovation across the television and media ecosystem, bringing together the Connected Consumer Awards from Mediatel and the Videonet Connected TV Awards.
