HTML5 Web Apps For Connected Devices From Opera

Norway-based browser firm Opera is trying to make it easier for content companies to get their video on connected TVs and other devices. With the launch of a new content development kit (CDK), available for free download at, video publishers will be able to build standards-based web apps that will be accessible across multiple devices.
Today, video publishers that want to reach consumers who have bought Samsung connected devices, Roku broadband set-top boxes or the upcoming Boxee Box have to create different applications for each platform, each which requires its own user interface, file formats and the like. (This makes Netflix’s feat of making its streaming service available on more than 100 different devices from various CE manufacturers all the more impressive.)
