The app allows Kaltura customers to publish video content from within Kaltura directly to Amazon Fire TV. Amazon recently released the Web App Starter Kit for Fire TV, which is intended to help web developers create a simple media-oriented app. Building on this model, Kaltura’s app brings the Kaltura HTML5 player to the TV screen, enabling publishers to create turnkey apps for the Fire TV platform, according to the company.
“Our goal is to bring Kaltura’s OTT-grade player to as many devices and platforms as possible and TV screens are no exception,” said Ron Yekutiel, Chairman and CEO of Kaltura. “Publishers need the flexibility to monetize their content anywhere, anytime and Kaltura is focused on easing the path to making their content available on platforms like Amazon Fire TV and Facebook that offer many more potential eye-balls.”
