Taking as its IBC theme, ‘Transformation in the Digital Era: Leadership, Strategy and Creativity in Media and Entertainment’, Igalia is showing its latest innovations in browser performance optimisation and improvement for smart devices.

Igalia specialises in client-side web technology, specifically developing WebKit/WebKit for Wayland, Chromium/Blink (web rendering engines for Apple’s Safari and Google Chrome respectively) and Firefox, and optimising and evolving them for customers who use these platforms for their services.

The company said that it works with leading manufacturers of smart TVs, set-top boxes, smartphones and home automation to deliver solutions that improve and speed up playback of video, graphics,

“We can make a contribution to any platform built on top of Linux, from Android to various embedded systems, and these are our best introduction to large companies; they know all about what we do – improve the speed, performance and accessibility of our customers’ services.”
