Following its successful Kickstarter drive for a Chromecast-style streaming stick based on Firefox OS, Matchstick has now announced Flint, an open software and open hardware streaming platform.
Flint provides open source hardware and software capability for manufacturers, content providers, MSOs and others looking to easily integrate screen to screen streaming and interactivity. The Flint technologies, including open source hardware, software, and flinging protocol, will be available for download, review, and revision at OpenFlint.org.
In addition to Flint, the company also announced hardware partnerships with both Phillips/AOC and TCL to distribute Flint enabled products including TV’s, monitors, and set-top boxes.
“The overwhelming response to Matchstick signified that the market was ready for an open source streaming solution,” comments Jack Chang, US General Manager of Matchstick. “Inspired by Mozilla’s Firefox OS, Flint leads the way to transform how Internet video can be organized, managed and consumed.”
Matchstick / Flint will be an exhibitor at the 2015 International CES, Tuesday, January 6 through Friday, January 9, 2015 at Eureka Park at CES Tech West at the Sands, Booth 75205.
