It was a full and varied week for the HTML5 space. Here’s a look at some of the highlights.
First up, some digital signage news from YCD Multimedia which introduced Cnario|Suite 3.7, billed as the perfect solution for interactive signage. The offering features a fully programmable interface, support for HTML5 content and the ability to adjust content to any sized display as a canvas. Overall, this makes Cnario|Suite 3.7 a very flexible offering, especially for supporting HTML5 as it allows for the deployment of pixel-perfect HTML5 content from screens as small as a smartphone or tablet to massive multi-display installations.
Next, FlipHTML5 set out on the second week since its official debut to revolutionize online publishing by enabling users to create free digital interactive content in pure HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery. The company’s Flip platform is designed to enable users to self-publish online content such as magazines, shopping guides, e-newsletters and more. Indeed the flexibility of its HTML5 base means Flip can support practically any type of online publication content.
In other news, video streaming site Vimeo (News - Alert) made the switch to HTML5 with a completely new player built from scratch. The new player features a number of under-the-hood improvements, with the most prominent being that it defaults to HTML5 playback on all devices in order to provide the same familiar experience regardless of platform. However, it does dynamically load elements based on the device in order to ensure optimal efficiency.
Finally, in gaming news, HTML5 games can now be played on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 thanks to two new websites, Xboxie and Sonified. These sites allows their respective target consoles to access HTML5 games via their Web browsers, opening the platforms up to a whole new range of gaming possibilities.
