The ExtendCart Second Screen Mobile application is essentially a specially programmed browser capable of displaying mobile compatible web content (HTML5). A channel publisher uses the Admin Console to set the second screen URLS for the shopping cart detail pages and item checkout. Once playing, the system regulates itself and will update the second screen browser with the content for the item that is "Now Playing".

The ExtendCart Mobile Application for Android and Applie iOS is created using Adobe Flash and compiled with Aodbe's Flash Development Tools. An alternative Native applicaiton for Android, built using Google Android SDK and Eclilpse is also included.

The Admin Console is a web-based application designed to provide access to all the tools used to manage your ExtendCart channel. It enables channel owners or retailers to upload videos, manage the Channel Program Schedule and "Go Live" to instantly push content to viewers. As content is added to the channel, the admin console automatically transcodes your videos into the best formats for optimal streaming over the web, mobile and other supported platforms/devices.

Broadcast Playlist


The Broadcast Playlist is a 24-hour channel schedule created from the content in your admin console. Whether you upload 1, a few or many videos, they will be sequenced and looped to create a 24 hour live broadcast schedule.

Having a LIVE broadcast means that any viewers can tune-in from anywhere in the world (web, mobile or otherwise) and view the same program and the same time on your channel. Live broadcasts create the ideal environment for creating go-along services such as shopping TV.
