At CES this week, USB flash drive inventor Dave Moran unveiled an HDMI stick that gives a standard flat-screenTV the functionality of a smart device.
Dov Moran, Israeli inventor of the USB flash drive, announced the launch of an Android HDMI stick, the Comigo DUO Smart Stick, at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
The Comigo’s Smart Stick runs Comigo’s software solution, which is tailored to the unique hardware capabilities of the HDMI stick, designed to turn any TV into a Smart and Social interactive entertainment unit, with a super-intuitive user interface.
It enables the streaming of video and audio content: IPTV channels, OTT videos, VOD and other content stored on external flash drives and on the home network. The experience delivered by the stick can be controlled by a remote control or via a Comigo Client Apps for iOS and Android-based Smartphones and Tablets.
The Comigo’s Smart Stick together with Comigo Client Applications for Smartphones and Tablets, supported by Comigo Back-End Solution, comprise the ultimate experience and the most affordable OTT platform that can differentiate OTT service providers.
With the Comigo Duo Smart Stick the user experience is fully personalized. Every member has a personal login and is offered relevant features and content to fit their profile. For example, a child will have access to specific VOD, live channels, games, Apps, websites and educational books that have been authorized by his parents. The child can have limited TV viewing time and can communicate only with approved members. While the older person will have the ability to access different content that is relevant for him, the ability to ask for help, access specific shopping sites, etc.
With Comigo Duo Smart Stick, TV service providers can enter the TV market in an entirely new way, strengthening brand loyalty, targeting specific segments, increasing viewer engagement and enjoying new revenue streams.
