The CONNECT Player TVDemo package demonstrates the Player capabilities with playback of standard or customer-specific streams on a big-screen Connected TV.
The NAGRA CONNECT Player SDK 5 for Browsers and Connected TV embedded Player is supported by default. However, dash.js and Shaka-Player are also included for comparison against NAGRA's Player.
It lends itself to examining the behaviour and performance of deployments, especially when integrated with other items in our toolbox. CONNECT Player TVDemo is designed to be player-agnostic and easy to incorporate other Players to help provide a side-by-side comparison of the same streams under the same environment. It is aimed primarily at LG webOS, Samsung Tizen/HbbTV, and Hisense VIDAA for Web-based players while working on desktops within the Chrome browser. Hence, in line with the limitations of the CONNECT Player SDK 5, when operating within those environments, it only supports DASH streams encrypted with Widevine, PlayReady or TVKey DRM Key Systems.
