Variety is the leading publication for business entertainment news, recognized and respected throughout the world of show business. Yesterday, Variety hosted the first annual Entertainment App Conference & Awards to recognize the best apps in the entertainment industry and the companies that built them.
An esteemed panel of judges selected the winners based on the innovation, design, usability and overall experience of the app. We are thrilled to announce we won two awards last night – Mobile Innovation Award for Social TV App and Entertainment App Developer of the Year.
Discovery Channel HD took the top spot for the Mobile Innovation Award for a Social TV App, which recognized the app that expanded the overall Social TV experience for content owners, consumers and advertisers. Using Automatic Content Recognition (ACR) technology, the Discovery Channel HD app enables your device to identify the exact point in the episode you are watching and push relevant content to you – including what is trending on Twitter. This technology works whether you are watching live or catching up on recorded episodes.
We are also proud winners of the much-coveted Entertainment App Developer of the Year award. This award recognizes the company that displays overall excellence in development, including cross-platform delivery, UX, social media, payments and technology.
We could not have won this award without our dedicated employees and remarkable clients. We look forward to what the future holds in 2013.
Thank you for you support along the way!
