(CSE:EPY), today announces a new contract and its plans to enhance the Mobovivo Sports Game Engine to power existing and new clients digital signage and digital in-restaurant television networks.

Sport statistics, schedules, plays and scores display on installed TVs and television networks alongside leaderboards, lead take-over announcements, trivia, polls, charts and user data. The company is adapting its existing broadcast television technology to accommodate new digital solutions that don’t require a control room, staff, and advanced broadcast technology to present real-time data to viewers. The new approach is being delivered to existing clients based on the company’s experience with broadcasters such as ESPN, Time Warner Cable, CBS and others.

“In the past, the types of gamification and statistics data we displayed on broadcast was limited to the bottom ? of a TV screen and only visible to viewers when the control room directed,” says Trevor Doerksen, CEO of ePlay and CEO and Founder of Mobovivo. “To be compatible with digital signage solutions, we must fill screens of all sizes and this provides unique opportunities for engagement - such as polling and trivia - and, of course, advertising.”

The new technology will complement mobile engagement in sports. For example, a mobile app may ask users what team will win the game? The results of that gamification, alongside play-by-play and other content and data will appear on big screens and digital signage seamlessly.
