Opera reveals new tech for HTML5 TV apps

Posted on Wednesday, January 04 2012 @ 18:51:59 CET by

Opera Software will present new TV app technology at CES 2012:
With their New Year’s hangovers having run their course, a team from Norwegian browser maker Opera Software will descend on Las Vegas’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES — but you knew that) to showcase what consumers can expect from TVs in 2012.

“If the Mayans were right and 2012 is the end of it all, we’re starting off with a bang,” said Tatsuki Tomita, Senior Vice President, Opera Software. “We’re transforming the TV experience by bringing the world of HTML5 apps to TV sets, Blu-Ray players and set-top boxes all over the world. And, that’s only part of what we’re showing.”

In their frosty Nordic workshop, Opera’s engineers have been hard at work on several new presents for operators and OEMs to unwrap — late holiday gifts if you will. We already mentioned TV apps, but we’ve also improved the Opera Devices SDK. Here’s what we added while everyone else was guzzling egg nog:

  • Opera Devices SDK with Media Streaming Option. For most of our TV viewing life, we’ve been accustomed to shows starting without loading or the dreaded “buffering”. But, now with more web video content coming to the TV screen, we need to make sure that the video loads smoothly. Enter Opera’s adaptive streaming solution that ensures content adapts to the bandwidth available and local resources present to give an optimal viewing experience. Our media streaming option supports Apple HLS, Microsoft Smooth Streaming and MPEG DASH.

  • DLNA support. Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could stream content from one device to any other device in your home? That’s what DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) is all about. In the Opera Devices SDK with DLNA option, you can find other DLNA-certified devices and stream content between them. It could be videos from your media server or photos from your mobile phone.
