Flingo, a leading publisher of applications for smart TVs, today announced a partnership with digital entertainment solutions distributor Syabas. The deal will bring Flingo’s open source project, Fling, to Syabas’ Popbox and Popcorn Hour set-top boxes.
Fling enables viewers to click on a video from a supported website to watch it on their smart TV or media device.
This capability is now supported by Syabas digital media players and streaming media devices including the Popbox, which handles HDMI video feeds and most types of media file, including S3D, and its video jukebox product Popcorn Hour.
“It is our goal to provide Syabas’ customers with the most simple and innovative way to bring a variety of content to their TV,” said TL Lim, founder and president of Syabas. “With Flingo, that is exactly what we are doing. Customers now have the ability to truly integrate the Web and TV experience, right at their fingertips.”
