The new identity will be revealed at IBC 2017 in Amsterdam this weekend.
As OperaTV the company developed some of the first products for smart TVs set-top boxes and content providers. This includes the first browser engine in the Nintendo Wii and enabling the first smart TV for Philips. Vewd Core, formerly known as the Opera TV SDK, has become the most deployed HTML5 SDK in the industry. Shipping on nearly 50 million devices each year and more than 200 million devices in total, Vewd is the world’s largest connected TV device ecosystem.
“Today is a milestone for Vewd as we step out with our own brand that expresses our primary goal: enabling content to be viewed everywhere,” said Aneesh Rajaram, CEO, Vewd. “Our new visual identity highlights the universal elements of our industry – a play button, a screen, and the fragmented content landscape. While today is day one for Vewd, we build on our legacy as long-time leaders in OTT and remain committed not only to strengthen that position but push ourselves and our industry forward even faster.”
Vewd can be found in Hall 14, Stand A20.
