Cinedigm Feb. 24 announced an expanded third-party app development support for the Roku platform via its “Matchpoint Blueprint” software. The cross-platform framework enables content owners to launch feature-rich OTT video streaming apps for The Roku Channel, Roku TVs and other Smart TVs.
Cinedigm claims its app platform enables developers — in weeks, not months — fully integrated billing, configurable content menus, custom watch lists, in-app notifications and alerts, machine learning-based recommendations, single sign-on (SSO), DRM, ad support, and advanced analytics reporting, among other features.
In addition to the Roku devices, “Matchpoint Blueprint” is compatible on iOS and Android devices — allowing developers to stream content directly from their phones using the platform’s Chromecast capabilities.
“Roku users have responded warmly to our eclectic content in the past, and we are excited to provide them with another intuitive premium offering that will help them create high-quality apps of their own,” Tony Huidor, GM, digital networks with Cinedigm, said in a statement.
GM Aspiring creators and seasoned professionals alike will benefit tremendously from all that the user-friendly Blueprint Plus app offers — making what was once a long, expensive, and often arduous process significantly easier and more cost-effective, and allowing them to bring their unique visions fully to life as they get their creations out and to consumers in far less time than on similar template apps.”
