On-demand TV software and solutions firm Espial is expanding its Ottawa, Canada, headquarters and Cambridge, UK, office to keep pace of demand for its solutions.

The firm said that it is hiring more engineers and technical staff to expand its capacity and deliver user experiences for smart TV manufacturers and service providers worldwide.

Espial said it was seeing demand for its TV user experience solutions based on HTML5 and Reference Design Kit (RDK) and will host a recruitment event in Ottawa on June 5, 2014.

“There is tremendous interest from service providers around the world in deploying compelling and responsive HTML5-based TV user experiences for their consumers. We are scaling our technical capacity to meet these customer demands as we establish our leadership in these markets,” said Espial’s chief technology officer Kumanan Yogaratnam.
