Opera Software's Opera Devices SDK 2.8 Supports HTML5 Video
The updated SDK includes the same rendering engine (Opera Presto 2.6), found in Opera 10.62, with additional features such as:
• Integration with Opera’s new Content Development Kit
• Improved support for HbbTV and application delivery over broadcast streams
• A new API to integrate native, hardware-accelerated video codecs, offering a substantial improvement in time-to-market
“Today, manufacturers are creating a new generation of connected devices,” said Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software. “Rather than the traditional ‘lean-back’ model of TV interaction, today’s ‘lean-forward’ devices engage the consumer with interactive content and downloadable widgets and applications.
