A Broad Range of Browser Solutions
Highly successful products share the common theme that their owners love to use them and at the heart of the relationship between the customer and the product is the user experience (UX). Ekioh provides a broad range of compact, high performance browser products which enable the best possible user experience on even the most resource constrained hardware.
Ekioh’s multithreaded HTML5 browser is specifically designed for modern embedded silicon. Flow can deliver twice the performance of other browsers.
By totally reinventing browser internal architecture, Ekioh has developed the only HTML5 browser capable of making full use of modern hardware.
Flow’s multithreaded layout uses the combined power of multi-core processors to deliver performance that scales with the number of cores. Its fine grained multithreaded architecture cuts layout times by 60% on a quad core processor.
Flow delivers unrivaled graphical performance. All painting operations are handled by the GPU, which frees up the CPU cores for page layout and other critical tasks. GPU rasterisation avoids costly interactions between the CPU and GPU.
As UI resolutions increase and become more graphically rich, Flow’s performance advantage over traditional browsers will get even larger.
Built upon the latest open standards from WHATWG and the W3C, Flow provides extensive support for HTML5, DOM 2, CSS 2.1 with many CSS 3 features.
Flow is extremely compact, requiring just 11MB of Flash memory and a minimum of 5MB of RAM. Although designed for multi-core silicon, Flow can be used on any GPU enabled device with as little as 1K DMIPS.
Ekioh was the first of the major TV browser companies to select WebKit as the basis for its HTML solution. Others have followed, but none have Ekioh’s length of experience in successfully managing the evolving WebKit core technologies to deliver a stable product portfolio which tracks the TV centric feature developments of its desktop browser counterparts.
The Ekioh TV Browser provides extensive support for HTML5, CSS 3, CSS 3D, Media Source Extensions (MSE) and Encrypted Media Extensions (EME), ensuring that the display of even the most challenging sites, including YouTube*, can be achieved on the TV. Ekioh’s TV Browser supports both blitter and OpenGL ES acceleration to deliver maximum performance.
Combining performance, compact size and portability, Ekioh’s TV Browser requires just 24MB of Flash memory and a minimum of 25MB of RAM. It delivers excellent results on single core processors with as little as 2K DMIPS with or without a GPU.
*YouTube certifications for 2014, 2015 , 2016 and 2017 have been achieved in conjunction with STB partners, 2018 certifications are in progress.
The Ekioh UI Engine delivers a fresh, modern, user experience on legacy hardware. Older products often lack the capabilities to deliver an excellent customer experience using HTML technologies, but the investment in deployed customer premises equipment can’t simply be written off.
The UI Engine enables a unified customer experience to be delivered across old and new products.
Carefully balancing the need for performance and flexibility, Ekioh’s UI Engine uses Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) technology together with the latest open standards from WHATWG and the W3C to breathe new life into existing products. For UI applications, SVG is significantly faster than HTML and their common heritage provides access to a wide range of development tools. This gives the large pool of content developers the ability to deliver significant improvements in user experience.
Ekioh’s UI Engine requires just 6MB of Flash memory and a minimum of 5MB of RAM. Highly responsive user experiences have been delivered using processors with less than 0.5K DMIPS.
The UI Engine can be used in conjunction with Ekioh’s TV Browser in a Twin Engine configuration to combine the UI performance of SVG with the ubiquity of HTML.
Ekioh’s extensive experience in developing and maintaining fast, compact WebKit solutions was forged in one of the toughest environments, the TV market, where it was the first of the major TV browser companies to select WebKit as the basis for a feature rich HTML solution.
As businesses and consumers increasingly expect their products to deliver the additional functionality, remote information, and storage that connection to the Cloud can offer, Ekioh has moved beyond the TV to deliver the same core benefits of performance, reliability and compact size to the wider embedded marketplace.
Ekioh’s Embedded browser is designed for a range of embedded operating systems including Android, BSD, Linux, Windows CE & Windows Mobile. Content development simulators and debugging tools are also available for Linux, macOS and Windows desktop operating systems.
The Embedded Browser equires just 24MB of Flash memory and a minimum of 25MB of RAM. It delivers excellent results on single core processors with as little as 2K DMIPS with or without a GPU.
