Samsung has recognised the You.i Engine video app platform as an approved app development solution for the Tizen TV operating system.

Apps for Samsung Tizen TV are generally developed using web technologies like JavaScript but Samsung also supports Native Client (NaCl) on Tizen TVs, a technology introduced by Google to enable C++ applications to run in a standard browser and able to deliver much greater speed than JavaScript.

You.i TV worked closely with Samsung to help adapt You.i Engine to Samsung’s Tizen TV NaCl implementation. The resulting apps feature motion graphics, advanced effects, high performance, and a single code-base development approach. You.i TV is currently working with several OTT services to develop Samsung Tizen TV apps that will be released later this year.
