Main Software Components

Android TV is one of our main software components

Android TV

The DTVKit Android solution integrates DVBCore with Android using the Android TV Input Framework (TIF). By using the TIF, manufacturers can provide a TV input source that new and existing apps, such as Live Channels, can use through a standard Android API. Integrating DTVKit with the Android TIF using the binder IPC, rather than via a proprietary mechanism, ensures compatibility with the Android architecture. It also enables OEMs to leverage features such as the AOSP TV reference application when developing their products. Click here to find out more about our Android TV solution...
