3 Screen Solutions (3SS), a provider of customised software solutions and services to the multiscreen digital entertainment industry, has joined Metrological’s preferred content partnership programme to develop new applications and services for pay-TV operators. The partnership will help content providers to design, develop and deliver new and engaging apps that enrich the pay-TV viewing experience for consumers.
The 3SS-developed apps will be published in the Metrological App Library, giving operators the ability to pick and choose app line-ups that are best suited for their customer base. By using the Metrological Application Platform and open source SDK, apps only need to be developed once to run on all set-top boxes across more than 20 million homes. The Metrological Application Platform also includes business intelligence solutions and monetisation tools that help content owners to further leverage their brand and increase revenue.
“We welcome 3 Screen Solutions as a preferred application development partner company that will have access to all our tools and solutions to create new personalised TV app experiences,” said Jeroen Ghijsen, CEO of Metrological. “We are excited to have 3SS develop new inventive applications for pay-TV operators and look forward to helping more content providers benefit from our open SDK as well as the reach of our 20+ million cross operator network.”
