Integra5 Previews SMS to TV Application

In conjunction with Scientific Atlanta, Integra5 demonstrated an SMS-to-TV application that seamlessly converges quad play elements -- mobile phones, landlines, TVs and PCs -- into new cross-platform services.

The application, which is part of the i-Communicate application suite for Integra5's Converged Services Delivery Platform (i5 C-SDP), enables the user to send a text message from a cell phone to a TV. The text message is displayed on the TV and the recipient can then use the TV remote to reply to the message with pre-set responses, or to trigger a "click to call" response that initiates a call between the home landline phone and the cell phone that sent the text message. If the person sending the text message has been personalized via the i5 network address book, the SMS will be flagged with a picture and nickname of the sender on the TV screen similar to Integra5's Picture Caller ID service. The application will be available this summer.
