LONDON -- nangu.TV, the pioneering media platform provider for IPTV and OTT services, is demonstrating a number of key features at TV Connect including its new recommendation engine. This is part of its remote control and multi-screen application for tablet, smartphones and set-top box devices. nangu.TV’s recommendation engine, which has been incorporated into the nangu.TV app available for download via the App Store or Google Play, will be launched at the show. Recommendation has become a powerful tool: more and more users rely on discussions with friends when selecting movies and TV programmes, and advertisers know that a personal recommendation exceeds any form of advertisement. While users are browsing content on the nangu.TV platform the recommendation engine feeds the most relevant content from the fewest selections in the search categories. Using the nangu.TV app it’s also now possible for consumers to control their TV using a tablet or Smartphone device. This remote application demonstrated on the nangu.TV stand enables simple browse capability with on/off, play, pause, start again and volume adjustment. Pop-up push notifications on the second screen alert the user that content is starting and a single click plays it on the TV. The search optimisation is highly advanced enabling filtering based on chosen criteria. Users can search, record, bookmark or play content on the TV freeing up the second device.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
