Ooyala's co-founder and president of product, Bismarck Lepe stopped by VideoNuze's NABShow booth last month to discuss the company's recently announced content recommendation engine. Bismarck says that an early deployment is driving up to 4x increase in overall engagement. He cites one broadcaster that is generating an incremental $70K per day just by keeping viewers engaged longer.

Recommendations factor in type of device as well, so for example, shorter-form content for smartphones or longer-form for connected TVs. Watch the video below (7 minutes, 59 seconds)
