The OpApp application demo runs on Panasonic Smart TV and Skyworth Digital’s OpApp complaint STB. The latter is the world’s first ready-to-deploy OpApp compliant STB device with 4K UHD and HDR support, powered by Seraphic’s Sraf HbbTV 2 browser.
Commenting on the development, Mika Kanerva, COO at Sofia Digital, said: “With this unique functionality that HbbTV OpApp is offering, we believe that operators will get more support to deploy their services using HbbTV technology, which will benefit the whole TV industry.”
Xinwen Xue, VP product management at Seraphic, added: “Seraphic has been keeping close relationship with industry partners to help deploy the latest OpApp specification. We are pleased to work with Sofia Digital to showcase a new OpApp application at the HbbTV Symposium.”
