Nitro’s HTML-5 and Java Script foundation lets operators easily port the interface to new platforms/screens as they are added, cutting the costs of new interfaces for each platform, according to SeaChange’s specs.

The system’s open design also allows integration with various back-office software architectures – a “nice capability,” added another judge.
But its ability to allow interactions between platforms is truly what sold the panelists: “Viewing on one device can be paused and restarted on another device,” expanding content offerings on subscribers’ devices inside and outside their homes, one judge said.
