San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 20, 2014 — Cognitive Networks, a leading provider of real-time services that power Enhanced TV on Smart TVs, today announced a partnership with metacontent and metadata provider Lingospot. Through its various partnerships with interactive content creation and distribution platforms, app developers, advertisers, TV manufacturers, and content providers, Cognitive Networks has built out a first-of-its-kind Smart TV ecosystem for Enhanced TV. Lingospot is a contextually-aware content recommendation and discovery platform that automatically identifies what’s occurring inside each scene of a TV broadcast and enhances the experience for TV viewers by delivering compelling companion content. The Lingospot partnership will drive deeper engagement, increase programming ratings, add to advertising effectiveness, and provide new ad opportunities on Smart TVs.
Lingospot uses patented natural language processing, semantic search, image analysis and machine learning technologies to analyze multiple modalities of a TV station’s broadcast in order to automatically extract metadata. It then enhances TV viewing by providing additional relevant metacontent — such as articles, photos and celebrity profiles — to second screen and Smart TV applications. Lingospot’s scene-level metacontent leverages the company’s extensive network of relationships and integrations with thousands of content sources from across the web.
“The ability to enhance the TV viewing experience with relevant, related content helps expand the value proposition of Smart TVs to viewers,” said Michael Collette, CEO of Cognitive Networks. “We’re excited to enable Lingospot to help TV networks augment their content in creative new ways.”
