OpenTV Unveils Advanced HTML Solutions For iTV
iTV company OpenTV recently unveiled a suite of HTML-based products that transform Internet content into iTV applications. The new products use OpenTV's Core middleware platform, H2O and HTML Package 2.0, combining existing Web application server infrastructure, tools and technologies to create TV-centric, interactive content on a range of set-top boxes.
An OpenTV official said the releases allow the company to deliver a powerful HTML solution on thin boxes, offer an embedded Web browser that supports the latest HTML standards for thick set-tops, which creates the capability for a more TV-centric interactive experience and enable developers to use standard HTML tools to author iTV content and applications while using the broadcast-quality capabilities of Core middleware.
