Coincident Unlocks the Power of Interactive Video with Coincident Create
LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)--
- the San Francisco-based technology company behind ScreenSync TV -
today announced Coincident Create, a new interactive video
authoring tool that enables content owners and distributors, as well as
their partners and vendors, to easily create interactive video
experiences without depending on Flash or professional programmers. In
addition, Coincident Create can be used to build second-screen companion
apps to run on iPads, Android (News - Alert) Tablets, iPhones and Android phones, as it
fully integrates with Coincident's ScreenSync TV, a new two-screen
solution that allows for close synchronization of tablet content to
cable broadcast or on-demand linear television content.
An important addition to Coincident's interactive video platform,
Coincident Create is an easy-to-use tool, featuring a drag-and-drop
interface that requires no special programming or coding expertise. The
tool presents authors with a wide range of new, creative opportunities
to enhance the online video playback experience including the ability to:
Place annotations or buttons in the video player that allow viewers to
jump to another point in the video or change to another video
Create overlay or adjacent buttons that allow a viewer to display web
content in the same webpae without interrupting the video playback
Script the video playback experience, attaching events and actions to
key points during video playback - including the ability to skip a
section, loop, jump ahead or back, or jump to a point in another video
"With Coincident Create, we now offer companies the ability to
capitalize on the growing popularity of the second-screen by allowing
them to create their own interactive video experiences and compatible
apps," said David Kaiser (News - Alert), Coincident founder and CEO. "The technology
provides users with the opportunity to develop an app for a new show in
a matter of days, rather than needing a professional design and
development team and several months as in the past."
Coincident's recently announced ScreenSync TV technology was chosen as
the "Best New Idea Most Likely to Succeed" in the cable market as part
of an informal polling conducted at CableLabs (News - Alert) Winter Conference in
March. Additionally, ScreenSync TV was selected as the best of the
two-screen class at CES according to ABI Research analyst Sam Rosen:
"Coincident stole the show here; they showed the best, most developed,
and most proven second-screen solution, featuring launched TV
experiences (Glee Superfan) with synchronized interactivity and easy
authoring of rich experiences using templates."
During the NAB Show® in a private suite at the Wynn, Coincident will be
showing the second-screen app experience via ScreenSync TV, and then
demonstrating how it was made using Coincident Create. Coincident will
also be showing off its technology at the Startup Debut media showcase
at NAB on Monday, April 16 from 7-10pm.
Coincident Create "Beta-1" is now available for free download at www.coincident.tv/create.
A version that allows for the creation of second-screen apps will be
released in the coming months.
Coincident powers the video web with technology that enables content
creators and distributors to easily design, manage and measure
interactive video experiences across all digital platforms and on
devices including TVs, tablets, phones, consoles and set-top boxes.
Nominated for an Emmy in 2010 for the Glee Superfan experience, the
company was founded by an accomplished team of software executives,
engineers and content producers. Coincident is based in San Francisco
with regional offices in Los Angeles and New York. For additional
