Equidia selects Visiware to design Equidia Live + second screen app
February 14, 2014
Visiware, Digital Studio, the creator of first and second screen experiences (TV / Mobile / Tablet / PC), has developed the application Equidia Live + app, which provides users with a unique and exceptional way to keep track of races, in partnership with Equidia for Equidia Live, the French and international horse-racing channel.
This application for second screens (smartphones and tablets) offers a wealth of innovative features that are synchronized with the Equidia Live channel. TV viewers can access information connected to upcoming or ongoing races, horses, results and winnings for past races. They also receive immediate updates from the Equidia Live editorial team.
All of the information can also be accessed during races in real-time (starts, delays, disqualifications, falls, etc.) and shared with friends while the users watch the race on television with a reminder of the silks involved in the race so they can find their favourite.
The 2nd screen device, available on the App Store and Google Play, lets racing fans express their opinions, react, take part in live quizzes and win lots of prizes. The application offers another feature. It lets the TV audience and users of the 2nd screens watch videos and look at images of exclusive behind-the-scenes content during the Grand Prix races. All of the features were available to users for the Prix d’Amérique on January 26th.
