IntAct Offers Opera Browser as Part Of Its IPTV Client

IntAct has announced an agreement with Opera Software that will enable IntAct to sub-license Opera's porting technology to its customers. This pre-integration extends the capability of the IPTV client solution available from IntAct, which already offers operators and manufacturers a robust solution after rollouts in approximately 700.000 IPTV STBs worldwide.

IntAct is also providing the ability for operators and application developers alike to develop rich and compelling end user solutions, which can be ready for live deployment much more quickly and easily than before. To enable the development of such applications, IntAct will offer Opera specific IntAct Software Development Kits, targeted to give application developers the most complete tool to write interactive TV applications such as EPG, Infotainment, and messaging amongst many others.

Add to this the impressive range of integrations and deployed configurations IntAct already offers with key network system elements such as Middleware, Conditional Access and VOD servers, and this compelling combination brings developers and users the ability to substantially reduce the time to market and risks of development for deployment of a successful and rich IPTV solution and service.

Opera's API is a feature-rich, high performance interface that allows developers to integrate Opera with their customised user interfaces and graphical toolkits.
