Miomni Deliver The Paddy Power Betting Application on the Yahoo Smart TV Widget
(PRWEB UK) 20 February 2012
The Paddy Power Smart TV Application enables consumers using a TV Remote Control to browse available bets today and in the future for a comprehensive range of Betting Types (Horse Racing, Soccer, Rugby, Cricket, Basketball, American Football, Cricket, Tennis, Golf, Snooker, Darts as well as Social and Political events to name but a few). Betting odds are updated in real time in this fast moving environment. Bets can also be placed into a Betting Slip prior to Registration and Card Account Setup.
As well as Ante-Post betting (i.e. before the event starts) the application will provide in a second iteration incorporating 'In Running' / Live betting enabling users to modify bets and place new bets whilst an event is in progress.
The application is currently available via the Yahoo Smart TV Widget on Samsung, LG, Sony and (US) Smart TVs in the UK and Republic of Ireland. Miomni is working on a Samsung specific application which is due to launch in January 2012 also in the UK and Republic of Ireland.
Miomni has worked closely with Paddy Power's Digital Team to apply a similar user experience that they developed for their highly successful iPhone and iPad applications to the Smart TV environment. This entailed writing a Functional and Design Specification, agreeing design wireframes and artwork, project management, application build and managing the QA process with Yahoo in the US.
In addition to building the user application Miomni has built a sophisticated server side middleware 'engine' that processes all incoming bet types, merges them with other data and rich media, like Racing Silks images, and then outputs standard files that the user application uses to build its views. The Miomni Platform handles User registration, sign in and out as well as account information which is then passed securely via this middleware service taking the entire load away from the Paddy Power infrastructure. This service can be used to provide data to any number of device types in the future for example Smart Phones and Tablets.
This middleware service is hosted on the Miomni Global Delivery Platform which can support a potentially unlimited number of users with its proven security model protecting Paddy Powers underlying systems.
Stephen Lovell, Online Product & Business Development Manager, Paddy Power said: "We have created a close working relationship with Miomni that has enabled Paddy Power to produce arguably the best and most comprehensive Smart TV sports betting application currently on offer. They have delivered on all aspects of the project requirement to budget and to the agreed timescales. This relationship coupled with the technical foundation we now have in place will enable us to create and launch innovative digital services in 2012 and beyond."
