Nokia Siemens Networks is rolling out its Ubiquity Multiscreen TV client, which streams broadcast TV and Internet TV to any device with a screen.

Built on Nokia's open source Qt cross-platform application and user interface framework, the client offers a simple and elegant approach to bringing video content from various sources to any device regardless of location, according to Brook Longdon, head of Media and Entertainment Solutions at Nokia Siemens Networks.

The client can run on various operating systems for PCs, mobile devices, and other gadgets including Android and Symbian, it also boasts features such as fast booting and channel-changing as well as support for user interface animation via 3D graphics acceleration. It also adds key features such as sharing of video content through web apps and social networks and built-in Digital Rights Management.

According to Nokia, several tier 1 operators have decided to expand their media services using the Ubiquity Multiscreen TV Platform, which was launched at the International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam.

Sebastian Nystrom, vice president of Nokia's Application & Service Frameworks unit, said that Qt already enjoys broad industry support and has a large application developer community. "The maturity, flexibility and large developer community for Qt provide Nokia Siemens Networks and its customers with a leading open source tool, and a community of users that will enable the development and deployment of high performance user interfaces and applications on any device," he said.
