Panasonic Unveils Viera Developer Site

7/06/2011 10:31:13 AM Eastern

Osaka, Japan - Panasonic announced today the launch of Viera
Connect Developers, a public web portal, to invite IPTV application developers
to write applications for its Viera Connect cloud-based TV service.

The new portal, http://developer.vieraconnect.com,
allows developers to take advantage of quick response and rich multimedia HD
expression capabilities of its Viera Connect platform, Panasonic said.

 Applications built
for the platform can be deployed in Viera Connect, which has become available
worldwide from this spring. Only applications meeting specification approval
criteria will be made available on the Viera Connect service. (For further
details, Panasonic is referring people to the Viera Connect Developers website.)

Panasonic said Viera Connect provides viewers with a wide
lineup of applications that run on its Application Execution Engine developed
with following features:

  • Cloud-based IPTV service -- where applications exists
    in the cloud, no need to download them on the TV;

  • fast startup and response that provides seamless screen
    transitions on full HD TV; and

  • rich multimedia
    expression using 3D graphic technology.

The newly launched Viera Connect Developers will use
market-leading streamlined processes to improve time-to-market for application
developers and media companies, Panasonic said. The portal site, hosted by
Accedo Partner Programs on behalf of Panasonic, will further expand the number
of attractive applications for Viera Connect by providing access to Viera
Connect's application program interface, technical information, reference code
and other assistance required to develop Viera Connect applications, the
company added.
