Specialist Browser Products
Highly successful products share a common theme, their owners love to use them. The UX is at the heart of the relationship between customer and product. Ekioh provides a specialist range of compact, high performance browser products which deliver the best possible UX on even the most resource constrained hardware.
Ekioh’s multi-core HTML5 browser leads the way into a new era of high performance with low resource requirements. It dramatically improves layout performance by using multithreading to position elements simultaneously. Because Flow is also designed to use GPU rendering, it can deliver over twice the frame rate of other browsers.
Flow uses the latest open standards from WHATWG and the W3C, to provide extensive support for HTML, DOM and CSS.
Flow is extremely compact, requiring just 11MB of Flash memory and a minimum of 5MB of RAM. It is ideal for any GPU enabled device with as little as 1K DMIPS. What’s more, its performance increases as the number of cores increase.
The Ekioh TV Browser provides extensive support for HTML5, CSS 3, and CSS 3D. This ensures that even the most challenging UIs will look great on the TV. Uniquely, Ekioh’s TV Browser supports both 2D blitter and OpenGL ES acceleration options to deliver maximum performance on all types of hardware.
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 even without a GPU.
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.
The Ekioh SVG Engine delivers a fresh, modern, user experience on legacy hardware. Older set top boxes often lack the capabilities to deliver an excellent customer experience using HTML technologies. Fortunately, Ekioh’s SVG Engine enables the delivery of a unified customer experience across both old and new products. This means that writing off the investment in deployed customer premises equipment is no longer the only option.
The SVG Engine uses Scalable Vector Graphics together with the latest open standards from WHATWG and the W3C to breathe new life into existing products. It requires just 6MB of Flash memory and a minimum of 5MB of RAM to deliver highly responsive user experiences using processors with less than 0.5K DMIPS.
Ekioh’s SVG Engine can be used in conjunction with its 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 fast, compact WebKit solutions comes from one of the toughest environments there is, the TV market. It was the first major TV browser company to select WebKit as the basis for a feature rich HTML solution.
Businesses and consumers increasingly expect products to deliver the additional functionality and remote information that connection to the Cloud offers. In response, Ekioh has moved beyond TV to deliver the core benefits of performance, size and reliability to the embedded marketplace.
Ekioh’s Embedded Browser supports a range of embedded operating systems including Android, BSD, Linux, Windows CE & Windows Mobile. It requires just 24MB of Flash memory and a minimum of 25MB of RAM to deliver excellent results on single core processors with as little as 2K DMIPS with or without a GPU.
