Vizimo acquires

December 8, 2008

'Next generation guidance' company Vizimo has confirmed the acquisition of TIOTI (Tape It Off The Internet), the popular, interactive, TV social networking website. Vizimo plans to use TIOTI as a shop window in which to pioneer, demonstrate and test new functionality and tools that tie together TV, the web and, increasingly, mobile devices.

TIOTI launched in Spring 2007 to considerable media interest and has attracted a substantial, loyal user base since then. In the same period, Vizimo has been quietly developing 'next generation guidance' solutions: intelligent, interactive, guidance technology that enables viewers to find, discover, manage and watch TV or video programmes that they are interested in.
