Customer

Silkker Media Inc., a digital content delivery provider

Problem

The customer was looking for a service provider with a profound software development expertise and potentially with experience in the Samsung Smart TV platform. Softeq impressed Silkker with its technical strengths showcased in the project portfolio. The availability of proven experience in Smart TV and media content distribution domain served as an added advantage. Finally, the customer organized a live test session with a Softeq HTML developer to evaluate the performance and skills. The test was completed to the customer’s satisfaction.

Despite Softeq presenting a service offering with overall higher rates, Sillker preferred it to an alternative vendor with a considerably lower budget estimation.

The team was to create a web technology driven app that would allow accessing on-demand digital video content broadcast on Smart TV and available on a number of platforms, including Samsung, LG, and several others.

Solution

The app has been developed utilizing the Samsung Smart TV platform capabilities. Samsung Smart TV is a platform that integrates Internet and web features in TVs and set-top boxes, as well as provides a way for technological convergence between those TVs and other devices like computers, smartphones and tablets.

The created app provides for the following features:

  • Takes the user through the authorization process and displays a categorized and rated list of movies and TV programs along with their previews/trailers available for watching.
  • Allows browsing through and watching the video similar to a playlist browsing in a player.
  • The content is stored on and synced with a server.
  • When logged in, a user can purchase a video of their choice using the credit card bound to the account.

The Samsung Smart TV platform driven app has been approved by Samsung for being listed in its Smart TV application category right from the first submission.

Methodology

The team employed the Agile project implementation methodology working in sprints scheduling the pending programming chunks for each upcoming week.

Results

Softeq met the allocated time and budget expectations completely by delivering a ready for use fully functional app. The customer is happy with the result, the success of which has been evidenced by positive feedback of the app users.

Softeq’s team also helped port the app to such major Smart TV platforms as Philips, Toshiba, Panasonic, and LG.
