announces a collaboration with IMAQLIQ
to provide the latest technology to consumers using IPTV. IMAQLIQ, a Russian developer of telecommunications equipment with a broad international footprint, will integrate Opera on its line of devices for interactive TV.
Technology, coupled with strong industry partnerships, makes the Opera Devices Software Development Kit the ideal solution for IPTV deployments. It is easy to integrate with streaming media players, conditional access systems, and personal video recorders/applications and can be used to create and render middleware portals.
The SDK provides maximum performance on the platform, is optimized for hardware and supports the latest standards. This allows IMAQLIQ to work with multiple middleware solutions providers. Additionally the collaboration allows customers to have access to the most on-demand applications such as YouTube, vkontakte and Google.
Opera offers a myriad of opportunities for OEMs and service providers. The interface between TV and broadband can be expanded to services and features that go well beyond the basic decoding of TV signals and web browsing. IP set-top boxes and connected TVs can be a conduit for video on demand, electronic programming guides, digital rights management and other multimedia, interactive content - all of which can be upgraded remotely and securely.
