Opera unveils new version of Opera TV Snap

Opera TV has unveiled a new version of Opera TV Snap, designed to provide broadcasters with expanded OTT capabilities on Smart TVs, including a ready-to-deploy Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV (HbbTV) solution to drive seamless interactivity on linear TV.

The latest version of the software also includes multi-tier navigation for episodic video content and monetization options and billing support, according to Opera TV.

Opera TV Snap is designed to turns video content into Smart TV apps in an instant, and is being used by “several hundred” video content owners to reach living-room audiences over-the-top, according to the company.

Opera TV Snap has been chosen by Deutsche Welle, the German international channel, to enable viewers to access multilingual DW live programming and on-demand content.

Viewers can access these services through the Opera TV Store app platform, available devices from over 15 global manufacturers.

“In our conversations with broadcasters, it was clear that their current Smart TV deployment options were inefficient and needed a shake-up,” said Aneesh Rajaram, senior vice-president for TV and Devices at Opera Software, “Opera TV Snap for broadcasters has been specially designed to meet the needs of broadcasters and living-room audiences at large scale. We look forward to helping broadcasters around the world embrace Smart TV devices and connect with their audiences in new engaging ways.”
