Dreamgallery maximizes operator ﬂexibility by taking advantage of the powers of the HTML and SVG standard. It
is the natural choice for operators wishing to move faster than the competition in order to create unique
differentiators, and who want to base their solutions on standards rather than being locked in to a proprietary
platform. The ofﬂine administrations module gives operators full control of their TV portals and provides the
necessary tools to set up interactive services without the need of consultants. Graphical ﬂexibility is virtually
unlimited thanks to the concept of generating pictures out of templates on the server side.
Dreampark's strong commitment to provide the best performing browser-based client on the market is based on
end user research and has resulted in a unique combination of outstanding user friendliness, openness, ﬂexibility
and TV application feel. For more information, please visit www.dreampark.com.
