Metrological Open-Source Browser Software

Metrological recently developed open-source browser software that enables high performance rendering of HTML5 apps and next-generation user interfaces across STBs. The new software will help increase browser performance, with a smaller software footprint, and requires significantly less memory usage. The browser relies upon open-source “WebKit for Wayland” components to render UIs, and provide better windows management to control multiple applications and resource management.

The open-source browser enhancements have been contributed to the RDK software stack for use across the pay TV industry. Liberty Global and Comcast will be the first operators to leverage the new, open-source browser enhancements to improve their ability to support enhanced IP browser-based services and applications for STBs.
