ACCESS Integrates NetFront Browser NX with Broadcom, Intel Chipsets

ACCESS Co., LTD introduced its TV-centric HTML5 browser, NetFront Browser NX 3.0, to the European market at TV Connect, which concludes today, while also demonstrating its latest features. These features include enhanced YouTube (NewsAlert) Leanback HTML5 functionality, expanded set top box (STB) and TV chip support, and seamless sharing of content and user interfaces from a PVR to other connected devices.

NetFront Browser NX 3.0’s expanded STB and TV chip support stems from its integration with Intel and Broadcom (News Alert) STBs and chipsets. Furthermore, the browser has been optimized to maximize hardware acceleration, which builds upon its advanced HTML5 functionality to offer "lightning quick" video rendering speeds on STB chipsets.

Furthermore, the NetFront Browser NX 3.0’s capability to share PVR functionality with mobile devices in the home is made possible through the NetFront Browser NX UI being shared with a broad range of devices that use the Remote User Interface capabilities provided by NetFront Living Connect. This award winning DLNA Technology Component solution enables operators to deploy multiscreen functionality, while still retaining control over the user’s experience and branding.

"Visitors to ACCESS’ stand will witness first-hand the blistering speed that enables advanced UIs to be delivered by NetFront Browser alongside advanced YouTube Leanback and PVR experience sharing," said Kiyoyasu Oish, chairman and CEO of ACCESS Europe, in a statement. "This makes for an entertaining and exciting remote user interface demo that shares the PVR experience throughout the home, demonstrating why HTML5 running on NetFront Browser NX is the best route for operators looking to retain control of the consumer experience while providing users with the multiscreen media sharing they increasingly expect."

ACCESS launched NetFront Browser NX 3.0 in January, specifically targeting next generation multiscreen applications in consumer electronics, broadcasting, communications, in-car systems and other sectors. This revision of the browser also boasts significant performance enhancements.

Prior versions of the NetFront Browser have powered Nintendo consoles, including the handheld 3DS and the recently released Wii U.
