Nagravision has announced it will bring a number of web-based applications to owners of select 2010 Samsung HDTVs, Blu-ray Players and Home Theatre systems via the upgraded Internet@TV – Content Service.
Nagravision said its content publishing tools make it easy for content publishers to create their own applications for Samsung Apps, the world’s first HDTV-based application store. Users will be able to download and purchase applications from select 2010 Samsung HDTVs, Blu-ray Players and Home Theatre Systems via the upgraded Internet@TV – Content Service. The tools provide simple application templates for creating and publishing applications on Samsung Apps.
“Given the trend toward viewing web services and video content on multiple devices, it is obvious that there is a market need to allow consumers to access web content on their connected devices. Our content publishing tools make it easy to bring web services and video content to consumers, today,” said Yves Pitton, SVP Corporate Development at Nagravision, in a statement. “Accessing personalized applications on their widescreen TV’s will enable consumers to discover a richer TV experience in the comfort of their living room.”
Nagravision developed applications using the content publishing tools to deliver video content from Fashion TV and Travel Wizard. Both applications were demonstrated on Samsung’s latest HDTVs at the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and they will be available on select Samsung HDTVs, Blu-ray players, and Home Theatre Systems later this year.
