Infosys to Demonstrate Next-Generation Natural User Interface Cable TV Concepts at The Cable Show’s “Imagine Park”

May 22, 2012

BOSTON, May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Infosys [http://www.infosys.com/pages/index.aspx ] will showcase new and innovative
ways that consumers may experience television in the future via multi-channel natural user
interfaces at “Imagine Park [http://2012.thecableshow.com/thepark ],” an interactive,
high-profile platform for introducing and demonstrating innovative new products and
services at The Cable Show 2012 [http://2012.thecableshow.com ]. Rather than using a
remote control, Infosys will show and discuss how digital consumers can use voice,
facial-recognition and simple gesture-based movements to access their personalized content
and interact with the set-top-box of the future.

Natural user interfaces (NUI) – touch, voice, video and gesture interfaces – in
devices ranging from smartphones and tablets to peripherals such as videogame consoles
provide an opportunity for cable companies to deliver personalized interactive customer
experiences.

“Cable television innovation is crucial to serve the growing number of digital
consumers who expect rich, interactive, personalized viewing experiences, and natural user
interfaces are the next step in the evolution of TV entertainment,” said Mit Majumdar,
head of U.S. cable practice at Infosys. “With our breadth and depth of expertise, Infosys
provides cable operators the ability to capture the imagination of their customers by
helping them quickly launch new technologies like NUI that allow consumers to access
personalized TV with the wave of a hand or voice command.”

From the perspective of cable multiple services operators, multi-channel user
interfaces will enable service providers to increase customer loyalty, emphasize
personalization and help add interactive revenue-generating channels to differentiate
their television service offerings.

A partner of choice for seven of the top 10 leading cable, media and entertainment
companies in the world, Infosys helps build tomorrow’s TV entertainment by understanding
critical issues facing businesses and consumers, and co-develops innovative solutions with
clients including:

        - Working with the top three U.S. cable multiple services operators to
          develop mobile and tablet applications that enable their customers to access account
          information and TV services including scheduling program recordings.
        - Helping a leading telecommunications, media and entertainment company deliver
          the cable TV experience, including live television and video streaming to their
          customers, on Android tablets, smartphones and iPads.
        - Co-creating second screen solutions for Unwire, a European service provider,
          to enhance the social TV experience and smart search features via iPads. See video at
