ANT Galio Client
Enhance the TV experience
ANT Galio Client is the TV middleware engine from TV specialist company ANT that removes the barriers between different media sources in today’s increasingly complex and connected TV world. Naturally complementing the ANT Galio Browser, there is a version of ANT Galio Client to suit virtually every TV requirement, whether traditional, new media or hybrid.
COMPREHENSIVE FEATURES FOR TODAY’S TV NEEDS
Available in pre-configured versions for HbbTV, OIPF and RMAI deployments
Ensures consistency of behaviour, function and presentation of TV applications across all supporting platforms
Designed to seamlessly support content download, sharing and distribution services; multi-room capability, home networking, application download
Essential infrastructure in native code ensures responsive and memory efficient operation of multimedia services, such as sorting or searching of data within an electronic program guide (EPG)
Allows developers to focus on producing dynamic, visually exciting multimedia services not the infrastructure to support them
TV applications inherently capable of encompassing all available media and metadata sources
At the system level, integration of different media and metadata sources is performed at
the device driver interface, greatly simplifying the integration task, thereby reducing risk,
time to market and product development cost. At the TV application level, generic APIs
ensure applications are flexible and portable, handling media data in the same way
regardless of format or source, thus lowering risk and development costs.
Together, these characteristics help ensure maximum re-use of investment in porting, integration, knowledge and TV applications.
Open Platform APIs
Further details of the Rich Media Access Interface (RMAI) are contained in a separate ANT datasheet.
Platform Control & Management
The Media Device API (MDA) and ANT Portability Environment (APE) provide the interface between the ANT Galio Client and the underlying platform. Together they offer a pluggable driver model allowing features to be added without requiring changes in the ANT Galio Client libraries. This offers a practical and costeffective solution for rapidly porting and optimising the ANT Galio Client across multiple platforms and environments.
Optional modules for IPTV, DVB, Over-The-Top (OTT)
In order to support enhanced requirements, a number of optional modules are available for the ANT Galio Client.
Extended VOD and PVR solutions
