Oregan™ TV Browser 3.0 to enable Dynamic HTML and Macromedia Flash 6.0 rendering on IPTV and Digital

Oregan's browser for consumer electronics resolves W3C standards adherence challenges in the embedded space, providing advanced TV user interfaces and internet media delivery capabilities.

London, United Kingdom, 18th October 2004 - Oregan Networks, London -based provider of software building blocks for embedded entertainment platforms, has launched its next generation TV Browser 3.0, featuring support for HTML 4.1, XHTML1.0, JavaScript 1.5, CSS -2, CSS -TV, and DOM -2 enabling Dynamic HTML. The new browser has a compact 2MB footprint and executes within 16MB SDRAM.

Unique to Oregan's new development is its proprietary Macromedia Flash 6.0 compatible plug -in, delivering outstanding Flash file rendering performance on low powered embedded CPUs. The latest Macromedia Flash player module is pre -integrated as part of Oregan™ TV Browser 3.0, allowing customers to deploy a complete internet media access solution without additional licences or integration effort.

Oregan CEO, Mark G Perry said, 'The expectations of TV browsing and User Interface experience have changed radically since the category was introduced in 1995. Today's TV -centric browser market demands sophisticated yet commercially viable solutions that do not require utilisation of costly PC hardware architectures. The ability to render Dynamic HTML and Macromedia Flash on a mere 150 MIPS embedded CPU is an accomplishment that makes Oregan's product optimal for delivering PC -levels of web browsing and user interface presentation on low -cost, resource -limited consumer electronics devices."

It is a part of the Oregan Media Browser™ solution, which incorporates a complete set of client -side building blocks for delivery of premium services, content and media to consumer electronics products, Digital TV platforms, IPTV / VOD deployments and gaming consoles.
