Opera Software's TV & Devices business unit is the market leader in providing browsers, app stores and advertising solutions to Smart TVs, Blu-ray players, streaming/OTT devices and set-top boxes. We have deployed our products on devices from over 60 OEMs including Sony, Samsung, Philips, Toshiba, Sharp, Vestel, Ericsson and Sagemcom. In 2012, we estimate over 25M connected TV devices shipped with an Opera product.

As more and more devices become connected, this exciting industry changes shape each year. Lately, with the increased adoption of HTML5 for TV apps, Opera has experienced unmatched growth due to the high demand for its market-ready products.
