Rovi Corporation today unveiled TotalGuide G2, a second-generation, unified entertainment discovery and access solution for consumer electronics (CE) manufacturers. The newly architected solution is expected to enable CE manufacturers to define and market differentiated products that help enrich the entertainment experience for consumers, drive product usage and satisfaction, and generate new streams of revenue.

TotalGuide G2 will bring together a comprehensive range of Rovi technologies and services such as multimedia rich and deeply descriptive entertainment data, personalized search and recommendations, multi-source video access and control, and interactive advertising. The latest solution will use social media commentary to enhance entertainment discovery and enjoyment, provide new access to high-quality original web programming including short-form content, and enable easy integration of third-party over-the-top digital entertainment storefronts – including services powered by Rovi Entertainment Store such as Best Buy CinemaNow.

"The home entertainment transformation is resulting in consumer access to more content; however, it is also exacerbating an old problem of how to quickly find something meaningful among the near infinite sources available," said Corey Ferengul, executive vice president of products, Rovi. "Expanding on our vision of integrated discovery and enjoyment, TotalGuide G2 is designed to help our customers deliver distinct market solutions that make sense of what might otherwise be disparate content sources and environments. At the same time, TotalGuide G2 is flexible enough to enable manufacturers to deliver an entertainment experience that's unique to them."

Using functionality delivered through Rovi Cloud Services, TotalGuide G2 will allow manufacturers to easily configure a feature set and custom user interface, based on either HTML or Flash, that's unique to them and meets the specific needs of a product line or target device. Lightweight and planned to be integration ready for a broad range of connected platforms, TotalGuide G2 is expected to help manufacturers enrich their products to provide users with deeply engaging entertainment experiences that expose them to the full-range of content available on their devices.

Highly customizable and implemented on top of common consumer electronics technologies such as CE-HTML, HTML 5, and Adobe Air, TotalGuide G2 is expected to include:

• Rovi Multi-Source Entertainment Guides - Enables access to a broad variety of content from a range of sources: Over-the-top video content including EST/VOD retailers, subscription services, movie trailers and more; linear broadcast television content from over-the-air sources, as well as cable, satellite or IPTV content providers;

• Rovi Search Service - Combines powerful algorithms, rich metadata, and a user-centric design approach to provide better accuracy and relevant search capability with filtered, predictive and highly personalized results;
• Rovi Recommendations Service - Offers various recommendations types, such as item-based, filtered, popular, new content, personalized, editorial, community and others, which helps to drive entertainment sales and consumption;
• Rovi Management Services - A set of user profile, device, and event management services as well as reporting and analytics capabilities that can be paired with the other web services to support user personalization in a seamless experience;
• Rovi Web Video Service - Enables access to professionally produced web video content from thousands of content producers around the world;
• Rovi Advertising Service - Allows CE manufacturers to potentially create recurring revenue streams by delivering interactive advertising on platform, as well as through content partnerships and sponsored search and recommendations.
