Brightcove CEO Jeremy Allaire is excited about the Apple TV and its future. The head of the video publishing powerhouse recently presented the idea of an apps-driven platform that relies on AirPlay to share content between the Apple TV and other Apple hardware. iOS devices, Allaire says, will become "the next-generation TV set-top box" and will bring "hundreds of thousands and soon millions of rich interactive applications and experiences onto your TV set."
To bring this new way to interact with the TV one step closer to reality, Brightcove has introduced the App Cloud Dual-Screen Solution for Apple TV. The technology will let iOS users use AirPlay to stream a show to their HDTV, while simultaneously interacting with information about the show. You could, for example, watch an episode of History's Mountain Men and read trivia about the adventurers in the show at the same time. The solution includes a software development kit that'll let developers easily create dual-screen AirPlay-enabled apps. You can watch a demonstration of the technology in the video below.
