LONDON — Accedo Broadband, the leading provider of IPTV and Connected TV applications, and Ekioh, the cutting-edge provider of browsers and SVG engines have announced the availability of casual games in 3D using Ekioh’s latest SVG software.

“We are thrilled about the new possibilities of 3D applications.” commented Michael Lantz, CEO, Accedo Broadband. “The innovative Ekioh team has added some astounding features by allowing for stereoscopic 3D effects in the application layer. Games are great examples of applications that benefit from this functionality”.

Accedo’s Funspot game service is the most widely deployed IPTV game service in the world and contains more than 100 casual games in various categories. The 3D games will be available for all Ekioh customers from Q3 2011.

“We’re happy to work with an application leader like Accedo to illustrate the powers of our new engine” said Piers Wombwell, CEO, Ekioh. “Games were the logical starting point but we’re looking forward to a wave of application & UI innovation from Accedo and other industry players”.

Ekioh’s stereoscopic 3D engine has been released to a closed set of customers and partners and will be widely available on the market from Q2 2011. The Ekioh engine is flexible and allows for integration into most middlewares and devices.
