TV technology outfit Norigin Media has open-sourced parts of its technology framework for building TV apps in an initiative the company said was aimed at increasing the quality of software across the streaming industry, and encouraging broadcasters to work together by reusing common code.
Norigin Media builds TV Apps for broadcasters and pay TV operators, using its TV App framework. According to the company, its modular architecture contains several independent UI components, some of which use open source code written by others. The company is now contributing its own code to the open source community in an effort to reduce fragmentation and encourage reuse of quality code across Smart TV development projects, Norigin said.
Norigin Media has published its first open source project about spatial navigation for remote controls on smart TVs, which can be found on Github along with documentation.
“We are keen to take a central role within the TV tech industry by providing neutral technologies and architectures. Open sourcing is advantageous since it gives broadcasters flexibility and ownership of the technologies chosen by companies such as ourselves. Norigin Media has many initiatives towards unifying the fragmented industry and calls for all key players to participate,” said Ajey Anand, CEO of Norigin Media.
