Oregan Networks Extends Skype Functionalities to the Television

Skype Alert on EPG screenOregan Networks, a software provider that licenses its embedded solutions to convergence carriers and Consumer Electronic brands, today announced availability of a new feature for delivery of Skype message alerts and caller ID to TV-centric devices, aiming to further enrich the end consumer’s experience and interactivity. Oregan Media Browser, the embedded software product of the company, enables ‘ubiquitous’ Internet and IPTV services and is based on the established open standards for web content authoring and distribution.

The new feature enables a scenario, where consumers can be notified of Skype messages and calls whilst watching digital broadcast or IP television, with options to dismiss or respond without leaving the sofa.

The company views the Skype service as one of the most compelling features available for Internet users today. Delivery of Skype applications on TV is in line with Oregan’s mission to enable the non-PC market to tap into the advanced interactivity, “any-time, any-place” connectivity and fresh dynamic content – through Internet technologies.
