Oregan Introduces Onyx Embedded Media Browser

Oregan Networks, an embedded multi-source media browser company, has
announced availability of Onyx for connected TVs and STBs, which is now
equipped with an enhanced uninterrupted video streaming capability. The
new mechanism allows for the unicast video streaming services to be
delivered to non-PC consumer electronics in any format, in real time
and without the need to buffer or store files on devices.

adaptive streaming logic inside the Onyx browser enables the bitrate of
the video, and therefore its quality to be continuously adjusted to the
actual broadband capacity available to a device within the household at
any given time. The adaptive streaming capability is now an integral
part of the media streaming player inside Onyx, ensuring network
glitches have little or no perceived effect on the Internet video
viewing experience.

Milya Timergaleyeva, Oregan’s VP of Market
Strategy said, ‘According to Oregan’s consumer research, at least 82%
of users are concerned that the web video watching experience would be
compromised by excessive buffering time. Adaptive streaming offers a
solution to the bandwidth sustainability challenges and is rapidly
gaining traction in the long-form online video market, as the amount
and types of content available to consumers on the public Internet are
exponentially rising. Adaptive streaming resolves consumers’
frustration with the time it takes to start video playback, as well as
sudden interruptions to the stream when the player needs to re-buffer
before continuing the show – unacceptable in a commercial Over the Top
service environment.’

Oregan’s Onyx for networked HDTVs, is
based on Oregan Media Browser technology, that is able to stream both
encrypted and clear video in various encoding standards, including
H.264, WMV9 and Flash video.
