Zenterio implements Ekioh’s HTML5 browser for improved user experience

Zenterio, which develops an independent software platform for interactive TV, announces that the company has added Ekioh’s HTML5 TV Browser to the range of products integrated within Zenterio OS.

Ekioh's TV Browser provides Zenterio with a wide range of HTML5 features including the ability to support HTML5 middleware and render the latest OTT portals from within their TV operating system UI. Its extremely compact footprint and excellent rendering performance ensure that valuable system resources are carefully managed.

"Our long standing partnership with Ekioh has been extremely successful and this new agreement is a logical extension", said Marco Frattolin, VP Product Management, Zenterio, "The joint solution has recently been deployed by Magyar Telekom in Hungary."

"The Zenterio OS enables operators to independently choose their hardware and middleware solutions", said Stephen Reeder, Commercial Director at Ekioh, "Ekioh's features and performance extend that independence and our minimal use of resources helps ensure tight cost management of the overall solution."

Ekioh's TV Browser is fully compatible with its UI Engine and advanced Twin Engine Browser. The collaboration enables Zenterio to offer the full range of Ekioh browser options to their customers without additional engineering expense.
