Wiztivi’s solution selected by Benshi for Samsung and Android TV apps

Paris, France. 15th December 2020 - Benshi, a French SVOD platform for children aged 3 to 11, and Wiztivi, leader in the development and design of user interfaces, are teaming up to deploy Benshi's service on Samsung Smart TVs and Android TVs.

Paris(15 Dec 2020)

Recently selected as best national digital solution by the World Summit Awards, TimelessUI universe is Wiztivi’s fully-featured off-the-shelf, cross-platform User Interface product. The UI has been fully customized for deployment on Benshi's new Samsung Smart TV and Android TV apps, thus meeting the specific needs of the content provider and perfectly translating the brand's universe onto these devices.

As the service is intended for young children, the features have been adapted to their use with a graphic design creating a reassuring environment for the youngest. Simplified thematic search allows, from any chosen category, all corresponding content to be found on a single page.

To adapt to the customs of families, we felt it was essential to distribute our service on television,” said Adrien Desanges, President and founder of Benshi. “We are very happy with the Smart TV application we developed with WIZTIVI. Intuitive, simple and powerful, it will enable all our users to enjoy great cinematic moments with their families. Our presence on Smart TVs marks a new stage in our development and confirms our desire to expand our service on TVs. We look forward to working with Wiztivi again in the future.”

From the Benshi application on Samsung Smart TVs, subscribers will have access to a catalog of more than 200 films carefully selected by children's cinema professionals, and enjoy unique guidance, precise and well-argued age recommendation for each film, detailed opinions on the film and good reasons to watch it.

Ari Bensimon, CEO at Wiztivi, added: “We are very happy to have been able to collaborate with Benshi in this exciting project of extension to new markets. Thanks to TimelessUI Universe, we were able to provide them with our expertise on Samsung and Android TV. In return, Benshi, thanks to its long-standing experience, has enabled us to enrich our services to the youngest. We would like to thank Benshi for the quality of this ambitious partnership and we have no doubt that they will meet the success they deserve in their new projects.”
