Oregan Networks has announced a new feature for delivery of Skype message alerts and caller ID to TV-centric devices, aiming to enhance the end consumer's experience and interactivity.
Oregan Media Browser, the embedded software product of the company, enables 'ubiquitous' Internet and IPTV services and is based on the established open standards for web content authoring and distribution.
The new feature enables a scenario where consumers can be notified of Skype messages and calls whilst watching digital broadcast or IP television, with options to dismiss or respond without leaving the sofa.
The company says it views the Skype service as one of the most compelling features available for Internet users today. Delivery of Skype applications on TV is in line with Oregan's mission to enable the non-PC market to tap into the advanced interactivity, "any-time, any-place" connectivity and fresh dynamic content - through Internet technologies.
The Oregan Media Browser suite of embedded software building blocks consists of three media enabling modules, the TV Browser, IPTV Client and the DLNA Player and Server.
The integrated architecture allows service providers to deploy multiple entertainment functionalities via a single embedded software stack, enabling broadband delivery of interactive video, music and live data services via a web-based user interface, as well as distribution of downloaded content to multiple client devices on the network.
