Ocean Blue lauches ‘Horizon’ HbbTV solution
March 19, 2013
Ocean Blue, a specialist provider of connected software solutions, has launched their ‘Horizon’ HbbTV solution at TV Connect.
‘Horizon’ HbbTV middleware will enable manufacturers and operators to provide set top boxes and iDTVs with full Connected TV functionality, allowing access to sites such as You Tube, Flickr and local catch up services; via a consistent User Interface (UI) and sitting alongside the linear broadcast.
“Ocean Blue is an active supporter of the HbbTV standard and our development of a fully compliant solution comes at an exciting time for us, particularly when HbbTV is emerging as the dominant platform to unite broadcast and connected TV,” said Paul Martin, CEO of Ocean Blue.
