TeraVolt develops first Lightning Application for RTL+ and Vodafone’s GigaTV platform
TeraVolt has developed a Lightning Application for RTL+ and Vodafone, enabling the launch of RTL+ as a pre-installed app on Vodafone’s GigaTV platform. The basis for the GigaTV migration of RTL+ is the Metrological Lightning Framework.
TeraVolt has specialised in developments in the Lightning Framework from Metrological, part of Comcast Technology Solutions, for some years and was commissioned by RTL and Vodafone for the implementation of this project.
Oliver Koch, CCO and founder at TeraVolt, said: “RTL+ is one of the most important players in the streaming segment with its content and strategic orientation. We are pleased about the successful integration of the app on GigaTV. At the same time, we are further expanding our long-standing successful collaboration with Vodafone along the new processes.”
TeraVolt has also become part of the RDK community. RDK is a middleware software framework for TV hardware that serves as the basis for applications. The Reference Design Kit was created to accelerate the deployment of next-generation video and broadband services. It is a pre-integrated, open-source software distribution that provides a common framework for powering customer-premises equipment (CPE) such as set-top boxes, modem/routers, and other devices from communications service providers.
