MOVL has announced the public release of their patented MOVL Connect Platform at the Game Developers Conference Online in Austin, Texas.

The MOVL Connect Platform gives developers the tools necessary to create apps that can link SmartTVs and mobile devices, according to Juan Pablo Gnecco, CEO of MOVL. The platform allows various devices to communicate in a shared experience and supports the creation of multi-user, multi-screen applications such as multiplayer games, second-screen TV experiences and interactive advertising., he adds.

There are two ways developers can utilize the MOVL Connect Platform:

° Direct Connect: devices are connected locally for low latency games and applications;

° Cloud Connect: Devices are connected using MOVL Connect’s cloud infrastructure.

Since the platform is a cloud-based service, developers are free from the worry of having to provide dedicated servers and bandwidth to keep the connections flowing. MOVL Connect is built to handle any number of users interacting with the system at the same time.

“We have created a simple process for developers,” says Alan Queen, chief technical officer of MOVL. “Download the APIs, get an app key, and you are ready to go. Your applications in different devices are now connected. We currently support Samsung Smart TVs, Google TV, HTML 5, Facebook, iOS, Android, Flash and JavaScript, with many more coming soon.”
