About Active Loop

Active Loop provides orchestrated media for broadcasters, content providers, and a new media cross-platform with the power to tie linear broadcast with OTT, web-TV, and mobile. In other words, it’s a solution that ties together content, interaction, and social media into one seamless user experience across platforms and screens.

Today, we would like to focus on the player side.

Our Work

To build Havoc Player, we used Ventuz, a well-known software for 3D real-time graphics that met our needs. Ventuz is very flexible and stable and works for weeks without any problems which is extremely important because the channel runs 24/7. As mentioned earlier, the interactive TV channel is designed for modern televisions, meaning that viewers can interact with the content on the screen. Havoc Player includes a number of really nice features:

  • Live chat
  • Live feed from social media (Facebook, Twitter)
  • Dynamic content control by viewers “what’s next” by in-app or social voting
  • Upcoming Clip which shows the current status of votes for clips
  • Adverts System that shows graphics on the screen (static images and videos)
  • Voting bar with the names of all videoclips
  • Display of instructions: “how to vote”, “how to get the 2nd screen app” etc.
  • Fully configurable content for all dynamic elements via admin panel

Watch as You Like It

To control all of the elements on the screen and make sure they show up in the right order, time interval, and pairings – we have build a special script. It’s a smart and configurable script that one can control remotely from the admin panel. The viewer has the ability to decide what’s more important to display, or simply change the graphics or all texts.
