Powered by the IS, the Synchronized Companion App Framework works by monitoring frame-by-frame changes in broadcast programming or live production. It then uses the changes to trigger delivery of relevant content to the second screen. Support for most major broadcast protocols allows the Synchronized Companion App Framework to be an active return channel to the broadcaster.
