OTT: Videos' augmented quality, content search & personalised recommendations vital, says Corpus COO


MUMBAI: Millennials are changing the dynamics of video consumption by preferring their handheld devices to conventional TV viewing. With improving infrastructure and internet penetration in India, the technology of delivering seamless video over-the-top is also evolving.

Corpus Media Labs, a video technology enabler, specializes in providing end-to-end wireline and wireless OTT platform across multi-screens.

This generation wants their content to be like instant noodles - Spicy, Instant and On-demand. They expect an apt search result and quick discovery of their favorite content with more personalized recommendations. Besides new content, millennials also look for a seamless video quality and intuitive user experience on their OTT platform.

In addition to matching broadcast and cable video quality, it needs to offer viewers what broadcast and cable can't, things like interactivity, personalised advertising, engaging user interfaces, and access anytime, anywhere.

"Augmented perceptual quality of the videos, search & discovery of the content, personalised recommendations are the most crucial elements for user experience," he says.
