Hillcrest Releases Web TV Browser Code

Hillcrest Labs has released the source code for the Kylo Web browser to the open source community for the first time. Kylo is a free, Mozilla-based TV browser designed to view online content on TVs connected to the Internet. It's designed to be used with a Freespace pointer, like Hillcrest's Scoop, and to be compatible with the Mac OS and Windows.

Hillcrest will provide the Kylo source code under the Mozilla Public License (MPL) 2.0 to enable developers to create new and different versions that extend its features and enable new uses. As such, developers can copy, modify and redistribute the Kylo platform and source code without a separate commercial license, and without paying royalties or fees. Hillcrest will remain active in the future development and support of the Kylo browser for TV. The open source version of Kylo is available for free via download at GitHub and www.kylo.tv.
