Zon tunes up ThinkAnalytics’ recommendation engine
Portuguese operator Zon announced it has gone live with ThinkAnalytics’ recommendation engine across its liner and VOD services.
In order to provide its Iris subscribers with better recommendation and search capabilities, ThinkAnalytics’ search engine was integrated with Cisco’s Snowflake user interface, which was developed by NDS prior to its purchase by Cisco. Zon said it would boot up online recommendations at a later date
"Our objective for Iris has always been to deliver the best TV experience bar none," said Nuno Sanches, product development director at Zon. "With the addition of ThinkAnalytics' recommendations engine, we are complementing our innovative user interface with a service that ensures our subscribers get the maximum enjoyment from their viewing time as they discover new programs and movies they will enjoy."
In addition to Zon, ThinkAnalytics’ customer wins include deployments on Liberty Global’s Horizon platform and on Cox Communications’ Trio guide. Earlier this year, ThinkAnalytics was the first recommendation vendor to sign up for Comcast’s Reference Design Kit (RDK) software license.
