WebKit Browser Supports HTML5 On Multiple Screens
Based on the WebKit open-source browser engine, NetFront Browser NX 3.0 from Access Co. Ltd. targets next-generation multiscreen applications in consumer electronics, broadcasting, communications, in-car systems, and other sectors with significant enhancements for HTML5 support and performance, according to the company.
The browser can display user interfaces (UIs), applications, and video services on all screens, from televisions and set-tops to tablets and smart phones. By combining its HTML5 remote user interface (RUI) with the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) standard, it meets broadcasting, communications, and consumer electronics requirements with stress-free playback and synchronization of content, Access says.
NetFront Browser NX 3.0 supports CSS 3D Transforms, CSS Filter, and CSS writing-mode, along with Canvas. By supporting key multiscreen building blocks such as Web Socket alongside HTML5 RUI, it provides service and UI discovery, inter-application communication, and barrier-free multiscreen UIs so operators and device manufacturers can deliver intuitive UIs and services seamlessly to multiple devices in the connected home environment, the company says.
Furthermore, the browser’s JIT-use memory area has been made variable to maximize the efficient use of limited memory. Unique extensions enable extremely high-performance graphical rendering through hardware acceleration. Plus, NetFront Browser NX 3.0 maintains the same porting interfaces as the preceding NX 2.x series and has been verified on Intel, Broadcom, MTK, OMAP, and R-Car chipsets.
