eyecandylab redefines the way of interaction with video content by bringing augmented reality to any moving image. Their platform augmen.tv provides the tools for combining first and second screen into one seamless, interactive and highly entertaining experience.

The roll-out starts with the Unity SDK Plugin beginning in 2019, followed by iOS and Android native SDKs later this year. First customers like VIACOM are using the SDK in the Nickelodeon Screens Up! app, continuously developing AR content around shows like Kids Choice Sports Awards or Henry Danger.

The technology will be available from Q2 2019.
At the AWE Europe 2018, eyecandylab will be one of the 80 exhibitors showcasing augmen.tv on its own exhibition stand with highly immersive demos in home ambience, providing the augmen.tv experience to 1,500 attendees incl. developers, creators, C-level executives, entrepreneurs, press & investors.
