Civolution, a provider of technology and solutions for identifying, managing and monetizing content, has announced that its Automatic Content Recognition (ACR) technology has been integrated with the Vienna State Opera’s multilingual 2nd screen app for live performances. The app enables OTT opera viewers to make the most of the experience with a multilingual 2nd screen app that is synchronised with the opera performance.
The Vienna State Opera is quickly embracing the adoption of 2nd screens companion devices and saw an opportunity to demystify the opera experience for potential new fans and provide a richer and deeper interaction for existing opera lovers.
“The opera is an experience people from all over the world would love to enjoy on a more regular basis’’, says Christopher Widauer, Vienna State Opera. “Through OTT delivery we are now able to provide access locally and reach a brand new and wider audience. By providing compelling 2nd screen experiences, we aim to create a stronger link with viewers globally and enable them to better follow and enjoy the Opera play, whatever their language or location. Bringing together various app developers and world leading ACR technology by Civolution ensures that we are delivering outstanding 2nd screen experiences, which really brings the opera alive on TV.”
