Deal lets publishers build native games for TV that can be shared to mobile and other formats.
Taiwan's MStar supplies a huge number of TV makers with internet connected middleware. This contract adds an end-to-end games service including content and store to the offer.
Antix Labs’ native games use a secure file format, similar in concept to MP3 for music or MPEG for video, so users can play the same title across different devices such as TVs, tablets and phone. DRM enables the games to be copied and virally shared with their friends and family, across the cloud.
“MStar’s success in supplying TV solutions has been remarkable. Antix’s products and its associated publishing community enable MStar to strengthen its comprehensive solutions in TV and also across the many other screens in which MStar is active and taking increasing market share,” said Francis Charig, Antix’s CEO.
Trevor Neal, VP of MStar, added: “The Antix Game player is a complete product and gives all our TV customers a simple way to meet the demands of an increasingly expectant market by offering the user best-in-class, casual and premium gaming services with downloadable native content."
