Opera Readies To Be The Gateway To Internet TVIn 2011 Opera will be embedded on millions of connected televisions, set-top boxes and Blu-ray players .

During the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2011 opera showcased its advanced web technologies as a seamless means to bring their content to millions of end users running Opera on their TVs.

End users can take advantage of Opera’s embedded TV UI to access “long tail” content bringing a full Internet experience to devices in their living rooms.

With the new JavaScript “Just-In-Time” compilers for Intel and ARM based platforms, Opera brings world-class JavaScript performance to devices with limited resources.

Opera’s HbbTV add-on will bring full HbbTV compliance to customers in version 2.8; with the new version, this option has been expanded and enhanced. A new and more powerful API covers scenarios where HbbTV is implemented together with other uses of the web engine, such as rendering of applications, widgets and EPGs on the device.

“The age of passive television viewing is over as consumers are now accessing interactive content with the click of a button,” said Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software. “The optimized Opera web experience offers opportunities for OEMs and service providers to take the next generation of Internet protocol TV services into living rooms around the world.”
