augmen.tv is the AR lens on every video. It revolutionizes video content by combining first and second screen into one seamless, interactive and highly entertaining experience. augmen.tv is renewing the way of watching videos by bridging the world of linear content with Augmented Reality (AR) to provide additional information and interaction features for direct response to advertisement and broadcasting content. The technology brings together linear videos and the second screen on smart devices, simply by holding the smartphone or tablet in front of the screen – for a whole new world with AR content. augment.tv enables storytelling and advertising on a new level, and – on top of it – every AR element can be made interactive to increase the viewers‘ engagement. The augmen.tv platform provides AR solutions, using moving images for marker purposes with its unique, patent pending TELEMARK technology. The app detects the screen as well as the viewing angle and identifies video content being watched while performing an exact time synchronization. Based upon these information, 2D and 3D contents are augmented around the screen in real time and users can interact with various AR effects.
