The late, great Gil Scott-Heron virtually invented rap music with his anthem, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.

Forty years on, the revolution that’s taking place is within the television itself. And it’s being driven by Google’s Android operating system, with our Tegra K1 mobile processor helping to make it possible.

Announced today at the Google’s I/O conference, Android TV is a new platform that brings Android’s rich ecosystem of apps to your living room screen. It enables you to watch what you want, when you want it, how you want – without an instruction manual nearby.

Set top box.
We’ve been working with Google to help ensure that Tegra is the first processor to support Android TV.

Android TV features a clean, elegant version of the familiar Android interface that’s optimized for the living room. Google demonstrated features such as voice search and tight integration with other Android devices – such as the ability to use Android Watch as a D-pad to flip through menus. Users can also launch multiplayer games, for example, with users on Android tablets.

An elegant interface, for a move civilized age: Google's Dave Burke shows what Android TV can do.

“This isn’t a new platform, that’s kind of the point, we’re simply giving TVs the same level of attention that phones and tablets have enjoyed,” said Dave Burke, Google’s director of Android engineering. “There’s now one Android SDK for all form factors.”

We’ve been working with Google to help ensure that Tegra is the first processor to support Android TV. Now we can see how Tegra K1 puts the magic of visual computing on your big screen.

To help developers drive this technology forward, a Tegra-powered Android TV dev kit is available today. For OEMs ready to jump in and run, we also have a Tegra K1 Android TV reference design, capable of console-style gaming, queued up for production.

Developers can use the kits to build apps that stream content and enhance live TV. And, of course, the reference platform will enable gaming at the caliber that we have always been known for.

See you on the big screen.

    Slightly disappointed that you aren’t doing Android TV like the Shield, a reasonably priced Shieldbox would jumpstart Android gaming like nothing else.

    I’m sure they wanted to, but seeing that google was building a version of their OS to do just this, it didn’t make sense for Nvidia to invest in the same thing.

  • vidvox

    I was suggesting that they use the Android TV software that Google is offering but making the device themselves instead of shopping around reference devices.
