Smart TV alliance
Platinum Hotel Level 4 Las Vegas
Smart TV Alliance is the smart V TV apps Ecosystem of the
future, the premise you build once and run them everywhere.
Richard Choi President of Smart TV alliance and LG
electronics opened the show talking about a problem in the industry. App makers have to make the same application
for each different manufacturer. What
the future of applications hold is 1 standard for all applications; Where you
can run the same application on a Samsung TV as on an LG phone. The web and HTML 5 will be the foundation to
Smart TV alliance.
In June 2012 LG TP Vision and Toshiba contributed to the
vision of creating a standard for the Industry . New members joining this year, Qualcomm,
Panasonic, IBM, Specific media, TechniSat, Abox42, Yume, Obigo amongst the 11
Jordan Shen from Panasonic spoke about the smart VIera
market and the 1000?s of applications including HTML 5 capabilities. So the goal is to get everyone to combine
their efforts so everyone can use the same technology in the future.
Scott Burnett from IBM spoke about empowering insights and
innovations in IBM and SmartTV
alliance. The mission and motto is:
build once run everywhere. Open
solutions for all consumers. Smart cloud has been released in conjunction with
David Hwang president of Obigo , explained how apps are
created, web content, template, web application. The cloud will make it easier for all
companies to use the same templates to build their aps. So the content provider gives the content to
Obigo and then Obigo gets it out to Smart TV alliance to work with all
manufacturers. So instead of the
developer having to create many apps for each device or brand, now the
developers can create 1 app and get it out to everyone. Great way to save money.
Albert Monbarg head of TPVision, announced SDK 2.0, this is
the tool that will help deliver on this promise. Specifications have been released, with integrated
software called Eclipse IDE, which has a built in emulator and validation
tool. So the process is development
through Eclipse IDE, Validation and publication by the vendor.
The roadmap for the future, every year there will be
additions to the specifications, such as SDK 3.0 and 2014 integration by all
