Opera to debut Blink-based HTML5 rendering engine for CES

The industry’s first Blink-based TV rendering engine, by Opera Software, will ship on the latest Smart TVs and entertainment devices based on Android L.

The Opera Devices SDK (Software Development Kit) 4.x series will launch on Android TVs by long-term Opera Software OEM partner, Sony, with the Opera Devices SDK 3.x series delivered on connected-TV devices using Android Open Source from TCL.

“HTML5 has proven to be the harmonizing factor in a complex and fragmented industry with many operating systems, regional standards and plug-in frameworks. When our TV partners announced their Android plans, Opera’s latest TV solutions were a natural fit,” says Aneesh Rajaram, Senior Vice-President for TV & Devices, Opera Software. “Manufacturers seek a certain degree of freedom on the OS layer, to differentiate the user experience. But, as we’ve experienced, content owners are keen to re-use their investments in HTML5 apps for TV, and this is precisely where we can add value to manufacturers launching Android TV.”
