CogniK and Netgem optimize CogniKiosk for VOD stores

CogniK and Netgem have successfully completed the integration of CogniKiosk, CogniK’s content discovery engine optimized for VOD stores.

Operators face an increasing challenge to combine ease of use and choice into their user experience. They understand the opportunities content recommendation can bring in simplifying and shortening the steps for viewers to select content. CogniKiosk, part of CogniK’s suite of content discovery solutions, provides an easy Application Programming Interface which is flexible enough to fit most needs. CogniKiosk provides personal recommendations based on some of the most advanced algorithms integrating latest research in cognitive sciences. It also provides content-to-content recommendation and an “accelerated profiling” toolbox.

In a context of content inflation and multi-screen usage, it is becoming essential for operators to better understand what consumers want and what they actually watch. CogniKiosk provides a full analytical dashboard easy to customize and a business rule engine in order to retain editorial control over content presented to the user.

Vincent Tauzia, CEO and co-Founder of CogniK, said: “This integration will bring an easy way for Netgem’s clients to benefit from our powerful content discovery technologies. It is a forward-looking solution available now on one of the most promising middleware platform in the industry.”

Yann Courqueux, Chief Marketing Officer of Netgem, added: “We trust CogniK recommendation technologies can really improve the user experience by making it easy for viewers to find content relevant to them. This is another important technology brick added to our ecosystem.”
