Opera to provide software for Intek hybrid box

Browser provider Opera Software and Korean set-top manufacturer Intek Digital have teamed up to deliver web-based services to connected TV viewers.

Opera Software will provide licences for its Opera Devices Software Development Tool Kit on Intek’s new Android-based hybrid set-top box, which includes HbbTV.

“2012 will be the year of connected TVs. As the demand increases, we remain dedicated to delivering the best to our customers,” said Shine Kim, CEO of Intek Digital. “Opera Devices SDK for Android is easy to deploy. It enables Intek Digital to both meet the time demands of the market as well as bring quality hybrid STBs with superb web-rendering performance to the market.”

The new box will be launched sometime in the first half of this year.
