Posted by Charbax – March 13, 2017

Interview with the core team behind the Linaro's AOSP TV project. The project lead Khasim Syed Mohammed and team members Show Liu and Vincent Chou demonstrate Android TV running on the 96Boards HiKey platform. The team shares the goals of the AOSP TV project, how it will benefit the SoC vendors, OEMs and ODMs of Smart TVs and Advanced Set-top box manufacturers and Android TV application developers. They clarify the project goal, its to create AOSP TV as the open source subset of Android TV and is not to fork the Android TV work from Google. They also share the details on upcoming LHG's AOSP TV m-lcr release, OPTEE security framework integration, DRM support to be added and a lot more.

  • Khasim, great seeing you, if only by video. We are really enjoying life in Beagle-land and I hope more people know of your great contributions to open source, including the initial software support for Beagles. Miss working with you on a regular basis!
