and NetRange MMH reveal an easier way for device manufacturers to give consumers a wide variety of content on their connected TVs and set-top boxes. Opera and NetRange MMH have announced a partnership to deliver the Opera Devices SDK and a pre-qualified suite of web-based TV content to be deployed on TV platforms supporting HbbTV and other pan-European initiatives.
This partnership allows Opera and MMH to package a system to OEMs and partners who seek an expansive portfolio of content, with the shortest time-to-market for new connected TVs.
MMH provides a ready-made portal solution including UI design, portal architecture, backend solution, hosting and portal operations for letting the end customer access content on various platforms, including HbbTV-based platforms.
HbbTV merges the two worlds--Internet content and traditional TV broadcast content--on one platform, the family TV. This means end users will have easier access to the content they choose. Content suppliers, on the other side, will have the opportunity of delivering content directly to users via Internet-based channels and applications.
Standards are the driving force behind the quick and easy integration of MMHs portal on Opera-powered connected TVs and set-top boxes from tier-1 suppliers and OEMs. By adhering to standards from W3C, HbbTV and CEA-2014, the MMH portal solution fits effortlessly on to the Opera platform for connected TVs.
Opera will show a demonstration of the solution at IBC in Amsterdam, at stand 4 A95 in hall 4.
