Business description: Rallypoint provides software and services for Internet-enabled HTDVs including our patent-pending “widgets on TV” - software embedded in the chipsets shipped to TV OEMs. We aggregate Internet information and content, develop the applications (widgets), and provision the services that consumers find through the TV remote control and an on-line “configure your TV” experience. Content includes news, voting, social networking, sports and fantasy sports, shopping, TV-related search engine, and video-on-demand – all through the TV remote. Rallypoint is redefining living room entertainment with a number of patent-pending solutions for next generation HDTVs, Blu-ray players, set-tops, and similar devices that feature full Internet connectivity. In bringing Web 2.0 to home entertainment, Rallypoint is pioneering TV 2.0 with breakthrough technology in user interface navigation, widgets and TV App development—allowing users to experience a seamless integration of their online and offline worlds. Rallypoint’s innovations include “beyond the browser” advanced HDTV user interfaces that fully-integrate web-based social networking and e-commerce capabilities, personalized look and feel, and Wii-like motion sensing controls.
