Led architecture & implementation of normalized, cross-platform, multi-protocol SDK for second screen devices called Connect SDK.

Connect SDK is an open source framework that connects your mobile apps with multiple TV platforms. Because most TV platforms support a variety of protocols, Connect SDK integrates and abstracts the discovery and connectivity between all supported protocols. Designed to support the growth of the SDK to include any discoverable, non-TV device type (wireless speakers, thermostats, light bulbs, cars, etc).

Press coverage

“The idea is simple: if it’s just as much work to include LG’s streaming tools as, say, Chromecast’s, you may as well use LG’s because they support (nearly) everything.”
The Verge (Archived version)

“…developers now have to include only one set of code in their apps, whereas they previously had to build custom implementations for each and every device.”
Gigaom (Archived version)

“…developers will take advantage of all of these features by inserting just one line of code into their apps and developers will not have to learn the different APIs for every platform.”
9to5mac (Archived version)

“…provides a common set of interfaces for a unified way for apps to connect to television screens.”
