The power of Lightning

LightningTM is a lightweight, open-source framework and Software Development Kit (SDK) for developing high performant UX and TV apps. It allows you to develop and maintain only one app, and deploy it across TV operators and devices. Optimized for the big screen, Lightning facilitates incredible performance, even on low-end set-top boxes with memory constraints.
