Molden Media, Ventuz and Opta launch Second Screen Application, M2Score

New Ventuz solution partner Molden Media uses Opta’s database to develop M2Score for sports fans.
Germany(4/10/2012) -

Tablet computers have become the new must-have consumer device with revenues far beyond all expectations. Naturally, broadcasters are trying to find the best way to implement this technology into the viewing experience. Added value is key. But, how do you add significant value to the program without drawing the attention away from the TV screen onto the tablet?
One answer will be launched at NAB2012 by Molden Media, a German service provider in the graphics and TV equipment industry. Molden Media has recently signed as a solution partner of software developer Ventuz Technology. “Ventuz is incredibly flexible”, says Thomas Molden, CEO of Molden Media. “We know almost every product on the market, and have chosen Ventuz 3D realtime graphics for our connected TV application for sports.” The live data partner is Opta, who specialize in collecting, packaging and distributing data for over 30 sports, normally for professional TV commentator and coaching use, and now also available for consumers.
The application is called M2Score. It enables the audience to receive additional live data on the game they are watching on the television. A variety of information widgets are available on the tablet, which can be swiped onto the television screen with a simple flick of the wrist and displayed either as a layer on top of the game or in split screen mode. Thus, viewers do not have to take their eyes off the screen, never miss a single shot, pitch or throw and simultaneously receive live updated game data. Widgets include heatmaps, player and team stats, completed and failed passes, shots on goal and many other details. Additionally, viewers can watch their own highlights clips, on demand.
“This application personalizes an entire game and will give each viewer exactly what they want to see”, says Joachim Sturmes, CEO of Ventuz. “Our tool has always been geared to create stunning interactive experiences. Now it enables you to interact with your television. This is exciting.”
The application will be launched by Molden Media at NAB 2012, on the Ventuz booth #SL7628.
