Opera Software has announced it will deliver its browser on Sony Bravia televisions and Blu-ray Disc players. Opera aims to deliver more “lean-forward”, interactive components to connected home users by offering Opera’s solution to Sony’s devices.
The Opera Devices Software Developer Kit (SDK) is the cross-platform, standards-based backbone of Opera for connected TVs and Blu-ray Disc players and act as a platform for creating web-standards-based solutions. Opera enables the delivery of web applications, widgets, full web browsing and emerging standards such as HTML5, HbbTV and OIPF.
“The Web as we know it is evolving, and we are committed to making it more accessible across diverse devices,” said Christen Krogh, chief development officer, Opera Software, in a statement. “Our ability to address key hybrid broadcast-broadband initiatives in numerous markets makes us a natural fit with Sony. By delivering both a global viewpoint and the necessary technology, we are able to stay on the cutting edge of the industry.”
