ACTON, Mass. -- SeaChange International (NASDAQ: SEAC), the leading global multi-screen video software company, introduced its Nitro™ multi-screen user interface software, enabling video operators to provide consumers with a consistent look and feel as they navigate and manage linear and on-demand content across mobile, PC, tablet and TV screens. A major multiple system operator (MSO) is the first Nitro customer with an initial deployment planned for later this year.

SeaChange Nitro is the consumer face of multi-screen video, leveraging HTML5 to give users intuitive features and functionality for controlling video content on any screen they choose. Key Nitro features include support for linear and on-demand video viewing, multi-room DVR, virtual channels, TV listings, bookmarking, search and recommendation, and handheld-as-a-remote capability, the latter transforming enabled mobile devices into in-home remote controls. The Nitro experience transcends devices, allowing operators to maintain a common look and feel across any screen their subscribers use.

Nitro continues to blur the line between television and social media with support for “virtual parties,” whereby users can enjoy a common VOD experience from different locations by communicating, sharing comments and inviting others to participate. Nielsen research indicates that “70 percent of tablet owners and 68 percent of smartphone owners said they use their devices while watching television.”
