Phunware Demonstrates Fully Synchronized Companion Viewing at CES

Phunware has announced that the company will demonstrate a unique multi-screen television and tablet experience that leverages Qualcomm’s (News - Alert) AllJoyn.

Far beyond the use of a simple companion application, these live demonstrations will highlight how a person with a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth enabled television and tablet or smartphone can dramatically enhance their viewing experience.

Phunware's application and content, coupled with AllJoyn, create an immersive, interactive and synchronized viewing experience that allows a consumer to connect and engage with a television broadcast through their personal tablet in order to consume related value-add content; it also allows them to sing along with their favorite musical artists; and even play a trivia game, apart from the ability to select and view ad-insertions.

“Phunware was excited to have the opportunity to work with QuIC on this innovative demonstration,” said Alan S. Knitowski, chairman and CEO of Phunware, Inc. “We are constantly looking for creative, innovative and entertaining ways to push the device capability and mobile user experience envelope, and we found a powerful way to bring some of our more advanced entertainment ideas to life with AllJoyn.”

AllJoyn allows the fixed television widget and the mobile tablet application to seamlessly and wirelessly communicate with one another so that each device is aware of the other and all content and devices remain completely in synch with no latency.

Along with Phunware's Hip Hop Official original programming content and brandME branded mobile experience framework, AllJoyn is a peer-to-peer, proximity-based, device-to-device, communications technology running on a Snapdragon-powered smart TV platform, the company stated in a press release.

Recently, the company announced the Phunware Private Beta Program for carriers, enterprises and application developers worldwide. PRAISE by Phunware currently powers tens of millions of mobile application downloads consuming billions of minutes of usage globally for the anytime, anywhere audiences of many of the largest and most recognizable brands in the world.

PRAISE mobile infrastructure solutions and tools help carriers, enterprises and application developers manage and monetize their content, digital assets, audiences and communities worldwide.
