OpenTV browser finds home in Panasonic TVs, set-tops
Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. Ltd. has incorporated a browser co-developed with OpenTV in all Panasonic VIERA-brand digital televisions and Panasonic OEM digital set-tops currently being rolled out in Japan.
The browser is capable of handling both BML 3.0 (Broadcast Markup Language) and HTML 4.0 (Hyper Text Markup Language) content.
BML content currently is used solely in Japan. The Japanese government and Association of Radio Industries and Businesses have mandated that TVs capable of decoding digital terrestrial signals must also be able to browse BML 3.0 content.
