In addition, the platform enriches the audiovisual content from data from other databases, such as Rotten Tomatoes or IMDB for movies, live signals, digital music channels and Web TV.

Toolbox, which is based in Miami and Buenos Aires, targets the TV everywhere and multiscreen market across Latin America and the US with tools, apps and validation services.
