Who are we?

ActiveVideo empowers you to unleash your TV user interface (UI/UX) from device dependencies. CloudTV, our cloud-based software platform accelerates service velocity, service portability and device reach for your video entertainment. The CloudTV™ software platform from ActiveVideo® drives value for service providers, content providers, content aggregators and CE manufacturers by reducing cost and time-to-market for multi-platform television experiences. CloudTV’s “write-once deploy-everywhere” content environment eliminates the dependency on consumer device resources that has fragmented user experiences and limited the reach of “TV Everywhere”-type services.

Using CloudTV to render the user interface in the cloud, service providers, content providers and content aggregators can offer rich, consistent user experiences and applications across existing and new STBs, as well as consumers’ existing CE hardware.

ActiveVideo is based in the heart of Silicon Valley, with an office in Hilversum, the Netherlands.

 

What do you get for this?

You’ll become part of a team consisting of strong, delivery minded technologists. The culture is highly informal and our structure flat. This enables our employees to be flexible and to research their ideas. And of course we offer a competitive package.
