Middleware provider Beenius has launched a new Android set-top box client that will be demonstrated at IBC.
The Android app extends Beenius’ Beesmart TV middleware platform, enabling TV customers to access the range of apps available on their Android tablets and smartphones through their Google Play account, according to Beenius.
The Android STB client means they can play a range of games, access services, listen to music and read books and magazines optimised for their TV. At the same time they can stay connected by sharing through social networks using the BeeSocial TV features within the app.
The Android STB client features Beenius’ new Chameleon interface, also being launched at the show. A new Beenius white paper Android STB: A logical step in the TV evolution will be launched at IBC to outline the benefits to operators and users of moving to the Android operating system.
“The move to the connected home is driving increased consumer expectations. The new Beesmart App for Android-based STB enables operators to meet these demands by providing greater choice and a joined up approach,” said Filip Remskar, Beenius CEO. “Beenius was founded on a commitment to develop the highest quality and most progressive technology for advanced TV, helping operators and partners to grow. The launch of our new Android app is a key stage in delivering on our vision, benefiting operators and consumers by making engaging content available anywhere and at anytime.”
Beenius will exhibit at IBC on stand 14.121
