sezmi

sezmi (formerly known as Building B) is an entertainment services company that focuses on combining the strengths of wireless broadcast technology and the internet to offer personalized entertainment solutions to consumers.

The company has been developing a video entertainment platform that aggregates content from a variety of sources- traditional TV programming, HDTV, movies, internet video, and on-demand viewing- and allows personalization and advanced navigation. Building B, in plans to roll out the platform currently, claims that the platform does not require a PC or additional infrastructure to implement.

The company’s management team contains prior senior executives from entertainment companies CBS, NBC, MTV Networks, Nickelodeon, Paramount, Showtime and Viacom.
