Panasonic announced today the launch of VIERA Connect Developers
(http://developer.vieraconnect.com), a public web portal, to invite IPTV application developers to write applications for its VIERA Connect cloud-based TV service.
Applications built for the platform can be deployed in VIERA Connect, which has
become available worldwide from this spring.
VIERA Connect provides viewers with a line up of applications which run on
Panasonic?s Application Execution Engine developed with following features:
- Cloud-based IPTV service - where applications exists in the cloud, no need to
download them on the TV
- Fast startup and quick response which provides seamless screen transitions on
full HD TV
- Rich multimedia expression using three dimensional graphic technology
The newly launched VIERA Connect Developers will use streamlined processes to
improve time to market for application developers and media companies. The
portal site hosted by Accedo Partner Programs on behalf of Panasonic will
further expand the number of attractive applications for VIERA Connect by
providing access to VIERA Connect?s application program interface (API),
technical information, reference code and other assistance required to develop
VIERA Connect applications.
VIERA Connect, which is available in approximately 100 countries around the
world since spring this year, offers a wide range of applications, such as
video-on-demand services, music, sports, games, health and fitness.
