Echovision announces THEO IPTV/VOD 2.0 Media Player SDK for embedded platforms
addressing the needs of the emerging IPTV market. THEO is a fully portable software framework
which facilitates the development of streaming applications and it provides the user with the ability to extend or
adapt its functionality. The framework is written in C using object oriented techniques and design patterns
software development methodology.
The player can be built as a library that an external application can use, thus abstracting all complexities
involved with streaming. Therefore the application designers can focus on the design and implementation of their
software whilst having the two main software components (application - player) totally decoupled.
The player is already embedded in Tranzas STB 8300 and 8300H in IPTV/VOD deployments in Japan.
