Netcast versus webOS

Question

Hi,

 

Can someone help me understand the difference between webOS platform and Netcast platform in terms of the TV application development?

Are there any specific differences in terms of TV app Creation, Installation and Deployment?

Does both the platform support "Downloadable" and "Web ( URL Based Webapp)" application types?

 

Thanks.

Pravin

Netcast is good, it naver says out of memory error, but the webOS is a fail from lg, if you watch youtube for more than 1 hour, it will run out of memory and in some cases will stop working, and you will need to factory data reset. Hope it helped.

I think that depends on your internet connection and set as well. There are reports of people who love the sets and have no issues, so it probably depends on your setup. netcast is LG's older operating system replaced now by webOS.

No, it depends on the company, i had to change my tv in the store, they replaced it with the same model and now i can watch movies in youtube but other apps and web browser still crashes with memory out error.The memory associated with other apps and the web browser isn't coded nicely, but google has programmed youtube app to work smoothly and use as low memory as possible on any device, but lg hasn't programmed the web browser to be memory friendly. And other apps developers don't know about this memory problem in the webos compared by netcast. Same thing happens with other lg apps like smartshare and others.

      I use Enigma2 for watching TV, recording etc.
      Is WebOS an alternative?
      Enigma2 can:
      Unlimited number of simultaneous recordings.
      Streaming (Intranet and Internet)
      Softcam (for pay-TV card) <= Alternative: support for "Unicam" etc.
      NAS instead of USB HDD.
      Unencrypted recordings.

      LG Signed a deal with Luxoft yesterday to bring webOS to new verticals such as automotive, robotics, and the smart home. Very interesting development and a clear expansion of how webOS will be used in the future for not only TVs, projectors, and appliances. Below is the press release from the Luxoft website.

      Next-generation webOS operating system will target vehicles, robots and smart devices
      IFA, Berlin, GERMANY -- 31 August, 2018 -- Luxoft Holding, Inc (NYSE:LXFT), a global IT service provider, has partnered with LG Electronics Inc., a multinational electronics company, to help create the next generation webOS as part of a strategy to extend its capabilities and ecosystem into the automotive, robotics and smart home verticals.
      LG Electronics has previously deployed webOS in over 60 million LG smart TVs and digital signage displays worldwide and this install base is growing rapidly. As a strategic partner, Luxoft is bringing technical assets as well as experience in designing and deploying software platforms for a wide variety of products and services.
      “Thanks to our collaboration with Luxoft, we are able to bring webOS into automotive and beyond,” said I.P. Park, Chief Technology Officer at LG Electronics. “Luxoft is providing a substantial technological contribution to webOS and has also greatly enhanced our ability to deploy it into new industries.”
      Luxoft will lead the deployment of webOS into the new, targeted sectors, beginning with automotive. Initially focusing on digital cockpit development – which includes infotainment, navigation, and other features that are human-car interaction-centric – Luxoft and LG Electronics also plan to introduce the new platform into the robotics and smart home sectors.
      “We’re already leveraging LG Electronics’ thriving smart TV eco-system to customize and enhance webOS so it provides an innovation canvas for car manufacturers to develop next-generation autonomous vehicles,” said Mikael Söderberg, Senior Technical Director, Automotive at Luxoft. “Having access to webOS and its cloud services platform will enable car makers to design and develop better customer experiences for autonomous mobility services.”
      With both technology and specific industry expertise, the Luxoft and LG partnership is helping provide more ways for businesses across multiple sectors to digitize.
      “Underlying this partnership is a shared desire to make it easier for manufacturers to innovate with technology. This platform gives them the flexibility to make digital changes. This will help accelerate the mobility revolution, improve human-robotic interactions and make smart devices even smarter,” concluded Dmitry Loschinin, President and CEO of Luxoft.
