Online video technology specialist Quickplay has used the Consumer Electronics Show to announce support for Android TV.

Quickplay says its technology provides extensive third-party developer tools as well as an Android TV reference user experience for live TV and video-on-demand, supporting Android set-top boxes as well as companion devices.

Quickplay has formed partnerships with Comigo, Intellicore and Oregan Networks around Android TV.

“We built Quickplay to help providers unshackle from legacy systems and quickly scale new growth engines, like premium OTT video and IPTV to any device”, said Wayne Purboo, CEO of Quickplay.

“The open approach we are taking with our next-generation experience solution will help providers offer the best premium user experience, powered by Quickplay’s extensive discovery and content management back office, along with a virtual head-end that provides 200-plus programmer interfaces, hundreds and thousands of titles and nearly 700 live channels. We are thrilled to be working with leading providers in user experience and middleware to bring truly open and best-of-breed solutions to the market.”
