PARIS, France — Netgem (Paris: NTG FP 7537; ETGM), a leader in connected home solutions and technologies, and Jinni, developers of the only taste-and-mood based discovery engine for TV shows and movies, have partnered to offer end-users a new way of discovering and choosing content to watch on any connected screen within the home.

Embedded with Netgem’s IPTV middleware, Jinni’s semantic discovery and recommendation solution was especially designed to enable a superior user experience and taste profiling to help end-users find great VoD content to suit their taste and mood. Operators will rapidly benefit from this TV app and generate more revenues by pushing relevant programs to their subscribers.

Seamlessly integrated in Netgem’s user interface, the Jinni discovery solution allows end-users to find movies and TV shows they will enjoy, based on their personal taste and mood at the moment. Jinni also enables meaning based natural language search for an intuitive user experience, far superior to the traditional genre content selection usually in place in VoD stores.

Yosi Glick, CEO and Co-founder of Jinni, said: “We are happy to partner with Netgem, and together power a new intuitive discovery experience. We share with Netgem their vision of making content accessible from all connected devices within the home, and believe end-users will greatly benefit from this new video content application.”

Mr. Yann Courqueux, Chief Marketing Officer of Netgem, added: “Thanks to its innovative semantic discovery solution, Jinni powers a holistic suite of new discovery features, thus allowing viewers to find TV shows or movies according to their personal tastes or mood at the moment. This kind of applications is really transforming the way we select and consume content on TV.”

Jinni and Netgem will showcase the application they have designed for IPTV operators at Netgem’s booth B79 in Hall 4 at IBC in Amsterdam September 9-13, 2011.
