Stoneroos, specialized in making interactive television accessible, and XroadMedia, provider of content discovery and personalisation services, have today announced their partnership.
Through this partnership, XroadMedia’s cloud-based Ncanto back-end solution is now fully integrated into Stoneroos’ OTT NOW! solutions, where it complements Stoneroos’ advanced user experiences and data services for content and service providers with AI-driven personalisation and recommendations.
The OTT NOW! multi-platform solution from Stoneroos will benefit from this partnership by providing customers with recommendations based on their viewing behaviour and interests across multiple profiles and platforms.
The EPGdata metadata and services from Stoneroos can now also be extended with personalisation and recommendations delivered from Ncanto.
“We are very happy to offer XroadMedia’s content discovery and recommendations solution with our white-label OTT NOW! product to deliver a next generation TV experience which our customers can offer their subscribers. In addition, we have also integrated XroadMedia’s solution into our rich metadata service EPGdata, which now also offers, next to our best-in-class pictures and data, a better user experience with personalised recommendations,” says Annelies Kaptein, CEO and Founder of Stoneroos.
“We are excited to work with Stoneroos and to extend their innovative offering with our powerful personalisation and recommendation services. With the first customer launching in the next couple of months, customers of our combined solution will be able to deliver highly advanced and personalised experiences to their users, increasing customer satisfaction rates and reducing churn.”, says Adolf Proidl, Co-Founder and CEO of XroadMedia.
