Rovi was honored at the inaugural Content Innovation Awards, hosted by Digital TV Europe and Television Business International (TBI) earlier this month in Cannes, France. The Rovi Personalized Discovery Solution won in the Content Discovery category for television technology.
The awards ceremony was held on the eve of MIPCOM (Marché Internationale de Programmes Communications), the global market for entertainment content across all platforms. Rovi was up against strong competition, but ultimately wowed the 13 independent judges from across the industry with our submission.
The Rovi Personalized Discovery Solution consists of a predictive search and recommendations engine and natural-language conversational interface. It is built on a foundation of handcrafted metadata and Rovi Knowledge Graph, which maintains real-time updated semantic information on more than 100 million entertainment-related entities, including program titles, celebrity names, brands and locations, all influenced by trending social media topics.

Over the last 20 years, Rovi amassed an extensive collection of CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays and video games. The collection – nearly 1 million pieces of physical media – was used by staff editors cataloguing cover art, artists, songs, TV shows, movies, actors, synopses and descriptions to create Rovi’s leading global entertainment metadata library. Because the collection would be more useful as a part of the libraries of Michigan State University (MSU) than in company storage, Rovi donated it, enabling the university to become the proprietor of the largest media archive in the U.S.
