The ability to pause, record, and playback television using personal video recorders (PVR) has been around for several years. But people could only control it when at home with their PVR console and remote.
Encore Interactive allows consumers to record, view and share television programming using the Internet. Since it’s web-based, customers are able to record their favorite television programs from work, their car, or anywhere else using any Internet-enabled device, and watch them whenever they want. Telecommunications companies that offer broadband Internet protocol television services (IPTV) will implement the technology.
The versatility of their product extends beyond content management and delivery as well. Since it has the ability to access and control systems in the home, they are developing partnerships with companies to develop the technology for the energy, healthcare and smart house industries.
