Simplifying big screen device reach and STB app development with the Lightning Framework

One of the greatest challenges for any streaming company is reaching consumers on all the different connected devices currently on the market. In the latest of his Spotlight blog posts focusing on 24i’s fantastic team, CEO Joachim Bergman speaks to JavaScript developer Metodi Deribanov about the open source Lightning Framework and the potential it holds to simplify development for big screen devices like set top boxes.

“The best thing about standards is that there are so many of them!” It’s an old joke, but it’s never been more true. Our industry is full of competing operating systems, standards and frameworks that are supposed to make app development faster and more efficient. The reality, of course, is that streaming services often end up supporting many different standards to reach all their target devices, especially if they want to reach the proprietary set top boxes (STBs) deployed by Pay TV operators. In today’s market it’s a challenge faced by any pure OTT service or broadcaster that wants to put their apps on operator boxes.
