New mobile Apps with redesigned UI

When people interact with mobile screens, they do it in a completely different way than when with big TV screens. Along with the rising trend for consuming TV on the go we felt it is imperative to improve viewers` experience by refreshing mobile user interface. Our latest Beenius mobile application is now more intuitive and flexible.

Network PVR

Network PVR

Beenius TV platform support different recording features so that subscribers can watch preferred shows from the past whenever they want. They can watch recordings within the Catch-up TV time span or record them on the network PVR (NPVR). Today operators can create with Beenius Interactive TV platform multiple packages with different NPVR quotas. With the improvement on the latest version, operators can deliver each recording on NPVR separately and for each subscriber individually. This way Beenius has fulfilled the demands from different market requirements.

Local PVR

Local PVR

Local PVR enables recordings on viewers STBs equipped with local storage. The operator always defines the channels that are available for local recordings. With current Beenius version all LPVR recordings that were made by one viewer profile are now available to other profiles as well on the same LPVR-enabled STB. Local PVR enables:

  • Recording of two or more consecutive shows,
  • Within instant recording, the recording can be stopped on the same channel the recording has been started
  • Playout of an unfinished recording
  • Bookmark persistence
  • Parental restrictions of an instant recording
  • Disk full handling: pop-ups for low disk space; recordings not possible when space is too low
  • New 10 statistic events (recording scheduled, watched, deleted, etc.)
  • Both LPVR and NPVR types of STBs can use Catch-up TV and Start-over TV (from NPVR)

Subscription Visibility

Subscription Visibility

Beenius introduces subscription visibility for operators, a Private and a Public one. The main goal of Public subscription visibility is to enable operators the promotion of the content outside of the viewer’s subscription package. In this case the subscription visibility is set as Public and the content metadata is shown to all the subscribers but the content itself is available only to subscribers of that package. When operator due to content, regional or technical regulations, doesn’t want to promote specific content to all subscribers but just to those who subscribed to the subscription package, then subscription visibility is set as Private.

Movie Variants

Movie Variants

Today the operator can offer to his subscriber’s purchasable content as an individual movie or as package of movies. Each movie can be offered in different variants, in different quality or audio language, and for different prices. The benefit of multiple movie variants is that the operator is able to set different prices for the various variants (e.g. SD/HD). Variants of the same movie are represented with one poster, description, and all relevant information to the viewer.

Multilanguage support

Multilanguage support

With the latest version of Beenius Interactive TV Platform operator is capable to translate not only the user interface but also the EPG, VOD categories and VOD movies metadata (such as movie title, description, name of director, actors, producers, etc.) into any language he prefers. Beenius also enables the translations of all live TV channel names and channel categories, so the viewer can enjoy best experience.
