Leading video platform Kaltura today announced a new HTML5 web app for Amazon Fire TV.
The app allows Kaltura customers to publish video content from within Kaltura directly to Amazon Fire TV, improving the distribution process and streamlining the multi-screen experience.
Amazon recently released the Web App Starter Kit for Fire TV, which is intended to help web developers get up to speed quickly by creating a simple media-oriented app. Building on this model, Kaltura’s app brings the Kaltura HTLM5 player to the big screen, enabling publishers to create turnkey apps for the Fire TV platform.
“Our goal is to bring Kaltura’s OTT-grade player to as many devices and platforms as possible and TV screens are no exception,” explains Ron Yekutiel, Chairman and CEO of Kaltura. “Publishers need the flexibility to monetize their content anywhere, anytime and Kaltura is focused on easing the path to making their content available on platforms like Amazon Fire TV and Facebook that offer many more potential eye-balls.”
