ANDROID4TV at a Glance
iWedia's ANDROID4TV arises as an enabler of the expansion of the Android operating system to TV devices with an aim to support Digital TV (DTV) functionalities natively inside Android.
By publishing its ANDROID4TV technology, iWedia aims at standardizing the integration of DTV within Android and at building a community which will:
- Help Android application developers develop DTV applications by using the regular Android framework and its existing authoring tools (e.g. Eclipse IDE)
- Provide the APIs and functionalities of a complete hybrid STB at Java level when integrated with a DTV middleware on top of a SoC vendor's SDK
- Enable operators to quickly introduce new technologies and services to their subscribers by combining both Android (applications, widgets) and DTV (IPTV, OTT TV, broadcast TV, live TV, VoD, catch up) experiences
