Opera launches Opera TV App framework
New Delhi, India, January 09, 2013: Opera has launched the Opera TV app framework and Opera devices SDK. With an enhanced Opera TV Store and Opera Devices SDK, Opera is shaping a new way to entertain in the living room.
The new version of Opera’s TV app framework, packed within a interface, now offers a great selection of new HTML5 apps.
A new side by side feature enables users to use apps in the context of what they’re watching, making the Web even more closely integrated with TV. It has support for YouTube Leanback. Opera Devices SDK 3.5 now introduces support for YouTube’s personalised TV channel.
Now users can protect copyrighted content and improve streaming performance; it includes support for the latest Web standards, Encrypted Media Extension and Media Source Extension.
Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software, said, “The future of the Web on TV involves more contextualization. People are looking for rich content options in the context of what they’re watching. By syncing TV content with smart apps, we can now truly bring more lean-back interactivity to living rooms around the world.”
With optimised support for CSS and Subtitles API, developers and content providers get cool graphic options for their TV apps. Support for latest SPDY protocol enables them to reduce webpage loading time significantly, now also in TV.
