ActiveVideo Networks has launched its “CloudTV Access’ developer program, an initiative designed to accelerate the design and deployment of advanced HTML5 user experiences for millions of users on CloudTV-enabled Smart TVs, set-top boxes and other CE devices.
The CloudTV Access program leverages the “write-once, deploy-everywhere” content creation environment of ActiveVideo’s CloudTV platform to cut app time-to-market by as much as 80 per cent for connected device manufacturers and virtual service providers, as well as cable and IPTV operators. Developing on the CloudTV platform is easy, but the program is designed to help developers who are experienced with HTML5 development on the Web make the transition to television while providing them with the CloudTV tools and resources needed to quickly create cross-platform HTML5 user experiences that can be scalably streamed to any device.
“Our ability to create the ideal mix of device and cloud resources has resulted in a platform that completely changes the economics of television content creation,” said David McElhatten, senior vice president, studio and services for ActiveVideo Networks. “CloudTV H5 ensures that developers have the fastest-possible development environment for rich, low-bandwidth user experiences on any Smart TV, connected device or STB.”
