AVS enables you to connect with your users in a new way through personalized, analytics-based experiences and compelling graphical interfaces.
Select the level of customization you require, from our ready-to-use reference user interface (UI) and apps, to selective modifications using the AVS Open Software Development Kit (SDK), or a complete custom build.
AVS moves at the speed of the market—so you can go from idea to launch in a matter of weeks.
The pre-integrated apps provide server-side configurability on key user experience elements. A Dynamic Configurator tool enables you to modify your user experience at run-time and personlize the look and feel of your UI.

Our specialist teams can also support you in developing bespoke UIs and apps at speed, built to your exact specifications. The AVS Digital Delivery Factory in Riga (Latvia) specializes in video delivery, processes and methodologies, with an Agile and DevOps approach and a strong focus on continuous innovation.
In addition, with a custom build, you can utilize the world-class skills of our Fjord designers. Experts in powerful cross-device user experiences, this global design consultancy was acquired by Accenture in 2013.
Alternatively, your own providers can use the AVS Open SDK to build your custom apps and UI, leveraging the AVS Third Party Program for improved delivery quality.
This option enables you to build a fully personalized service on top of the powerful technology of AVS. We can provide you with open access to a set of micro-granular, fully documented back end APIs, enabling you to build brand new, customized apps for your customers. This is particularly useful for the integration of new technologies into the AVS platform.
Back end APIs allow you to integrate any device, platform or third party component, providing you with the ability to extend AVS with the products and functionalities that you require.
Accenture has a track record of successful implementations, including connected TVs, Blu-ray devices, dongles, proprietary and off-the-shelf set-top boxes, gaming consoles, tablets and smartphones.
A Third Party Program is also available to enable your own team or a third party of your choice to develop and integrate custom applications and services for AVS by using our APIs. As part of this program, we offer:
A consolidated training program for your team or third party
Support options for your team or third party as they develop apps leveraging our APIs
Pre-deployment quality and compatibility testing, to ensure flawless performance.
