Visiware drives World Cup 2nd screen TV-mobile viewing

June 12, 2014

Visiware, a provider of 2nd screen solutions for interactive TV experiences, today has that its Sync2TV platform is powering the companion mobile apps for 2nd screen experiences for World Cup 2014 with some of the leading global sports TV organisations, including Televisa (Mexico), L’Equipe (France), and a leading US sports network. Visiware’s Sync2TV will enable interactive engagement for all World Cup 2014 matches on iOS devices, Android devices, and on the web.

Using Visiware’s Sync2TV technology, World Cup 2014 viewers can make live predictions, rate player actions, compare their sports knowledge with other fans, share opinions on topics (“was the yellow card deserved?”), as well as share photos, videos, follow live Twitter feeds, etc.

Visiware’s Sync2TV is the most deployed 2nd screen solution with a total of 2500 shows/games in 26 countries.

“The value of sports content for real-time engagement is tremendous, and we have worked with some of the world’s leading sports organizations to create what we believe is an altogether new interface for live sports participation,” said Laurant Weill, founder and executive chairman of Visiware. “The L’Equipe audience is inherently passionate about World Cup matches, and the audience represented by Televisa overindexes heavily in mobile content consumption, and we have created an experience for both brands and fans that is dynamic and entertaining, as well as comprehensive in its curation of sports content. We believe that World Cup 2014 fans will find a new mobile home for 2nd screen engagement watching content that is powered by Visiware Sync2TV.”
