Ringz.TV unveiled the release of its newest iPhone (News - Alert) app for viewers looking to stream content through their smartphone. This new app takes advantage of a 4DTV technology allowing users to preview channels before making a selection. Ringz.TV said it has developed “two thumb” TV that will revolutionize the way people view content on the go.
Just two months ago, RingGuides Inc. announced the release of a brand new video-streaming app called Ringz.TV. The app, which was designed for a multitude of smart devices, was designed to allow viewers to become more hands on and interactive with the content they were viewing.
“Ringz’ beta app organizes thousands of web video streams in a multi-dimensional environment. Leveraging the iPad’s dual core processors and multi-touch inputs, Ringz delivers a fast-paced world where viewers flip, swipe, tap, and pinch to explore a rich media universe,” RingGuides said in a company post back in June. “Ringz is designed to organize and monetize video sharing from all sources – “over-the-top” web streams, live IPTV (News - Alert) and cable television, video-on-demand (VOD) services like Netflix, “free-to-air” TV broadcasts, DVRs, and local files – in a single interface that works identically on TVs, phones, tablets and PCs.”
Robert May, Ringz’ CEO said the new release for the iPhone will include: a preview channel of the content, Apple (News - Alert) Airplay compatibility, full screen selection, and auto-play like a regular television. May said people love to have the ability to flip through content like they do when watching television. “Our research with hundreds of US digital TV households proves today’s viewers have a different relationship to entertainment,” said May. “They sample hundreds of videos weekly, have short attention spans but are deeply engaged, love to surf and share, and expect a personal experience on every screen. We designed ‘drag-and-drop’ playlists for effortless “watch later” personalization and iTunes support because consumers don’t care where shows come from, they just want to watch whatever, wherever, whenever.”
May continued adding that trends show that consumers want personalized entertainment and that “Ringz’ is built to help device OEMS, content owners and MPVD operators make money from today’s seismic shift towards “a la carte” television.”
