Oracle – Grin Developer Day

Seminar for Connected TV developers in Milan, Italy

TVs sold in Italy from 2012 on will support Internet connections, with the capability of running Java-based applications. Sharing a common heritage with the Java supported in Blu-ray™, these devices are just part of a burgeoning market in Italy and other European countries for Connected TV applications. On behalf of Oracle, we led a seminar about the open source GRIN framework, and how to leverage it for advanced Connected TV applications.

The Java support in Blu-ray is founded on work done to enable broadcast and satellite-deployed applications in set top boxes, using a platform called MHP (Multimedia Home Platform). With an exponent in the US called Tru2way®, MHP has found its greatest success so far in Europe and Asia, with particular growth in Italy.

made us a natural partner for Oracle in demonstrating how GRIN can be leveraged in an MHP environment to power advanced applications, from arcade-style games to over-the-top streaming applications.

“MX created a robust and flexible framework to allow for rapid development of these richly interactive apps.”
