Engineers at Opera Software would be giving the CES 2012 visitors the chance to witness the app revolution. In simple words, they will showcase what consumers can expect from their 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.
Here’s some of the things they have delivered for consumers that will enable us to enjoy our TVs in a more interactive way:
Opera Devices SDK with Media Streaming Option – This would iron out the buffering issue with videos from web, as Opera’s adaptive streaming solution ensures that the video content adapts to the bandwidth available and local resources present to give an optimal viewing experience. Their 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.
This sounds interesting, we will definitely be visiting their booth at CES 2012 to witness this revolution and give you our first-hand opinion. Till then, you can visit – http://www.opera.com/business/tv/ for more information.
