RTL II BTN & K50
These two apps are the largest social TV-apps in Germany. Both applications were completely redesigned and redeveloped by umwerk. They are now available on Windows Phone, iOS and Android and offer various new features. This including a Video-on-Demand portal for the respective series as well as a range of social features. Thus the app can be used as a Second Screen for chatting while watching one of the series or it can grant users access to the community platform.
The Second Screen feature, as well as the community app, provide the public with the possibility to communicate with each other, making the contact between series and user even more direct.
The backend is supplied by AWS (Amazon Web Services) and doesn’t only demonstrate high performance, but is also dynamically scalable. This way momentary peaks can be handled with ease. Additionally, a SSO-service we developed allows users to login to a selection of apps with the same credentials and stay logged in on several devices at the same time.
There are service providers that implement software.
And then there's us. Our field of interest is at least as diverse as our portfolio. Whether it’s User Acceptance Testing of complex system-applications, scalable backends for millions of TV viewers or integrating the hardware of a road roller into a smartphone. We love technology.
