The compact, feature rich, WebKit based
browser from Ekioh
The TV Browser combines Ekioh’s speed and compact size, with WebKit’s features and versatility. It provides strong support for HTML5 standards meaning that even the most challenging UIs and OTT services can be displayed on TVs and set top boxes.
Ekioh’s TV Browser provides both low processor usage and low memory consumption. Its footprint is just 24MB, including the graphics library. This means it delivers rich HTML5 feature support in a fraction of the footprint of other browsers.
The browser supports both OpenGL ES and 2D blitter options which ensures hardware acceleration support, even if no GPU is available. Our ports also make best use of scarce resources by working with the platform’s memory management features. System memory pressure APIs enable forced memory recovery if platform resources become critically low.
Linux and Android hardware accelerated examples make porting quick and easy. A GStreamer sample also provides a rapid media player integration option.
The TV Browser can be used together with Ekioh’s SVG Engine for applications that need that extra sparkle. This enables the mixing of UI widgets and HTML content from multiple sources into a single managed UI experience.
Desktop builds are available on Linux, macOS and Windows. Using these, content developers and system integrators can test their content without needing access to deployment hardware. On-target content debugging is also possible using the web inspector option.
Ekioh has been providing the TV and set top box industry with WebKit based browser solutions for over 12 years. Our browsers are deployed in millions of homes, rendering content in over 30 countries and across 4 continents.
