Opera provides its browser to Thomson for integration in its next generation of STBs and service platform

Opera Software today announced that it
provides web technology to Thomson, a worldwide leader of services to
content creators. The Opera Devices SDK 9.7 to ring Web technology will be
integrated in Thomson’s line of set-top boxes (STBs), in the STB
middleware software “THOMSuite” and the “Thomson Service Platform software
SmartVision”.

Opera will serve as one rendering component for next generation of Thomson
platforms, which allows for new Web-based services to be developed for
multiple devices. Opera will be pre-integrated on Thomson STBs for the
IPTV market as well as the company’s hybrid deployments, and it will be
used as one of the rendering engines on Thomson’s middleware. Opera’s
cross-platform technology can be easily ported to a wide array of Thomson
products, reducing overall cost and time-to-market for the company.

“We are excited to be working with an industry leader such as Thomson.
Through this collaboration, we foresee Opera technology enabling new and
added value content and services on Thomson products, helping them to
offer more competitive advantages in the IPTV market,” said Jon von
Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. “Our focus on W3C standards and our
compliance with industry IPTV standards are crucial to making Opera a
versatile, cross-platform tool. As such, we continue to work hard at being
innovative leaders who deliver superior technology to the IPTV industry.”
