The South Korean company will integrate Vewd Core, the market-leading HTML5 SDK into its customer offer. A solution already deployed on 50 million devices each year.
“Pay-TV operators need their set-top boxes to deliver the experiences consumers demand today, whether they consume traditional broadcast content or OTT content,” said Chulmin Kim, CTO, Kaon Media. “Working with Vewd lets us bring this functionality to some of the industry’s most-deployed set-top boxes, and because we’re working with Vewd, we know that we’ll have both fast time-to-market and unparalleled support.”
Kaon selected Vewd Core along with the Media Player Module, which together will enable their set-top boxes to support leading OTT applications and interactive TV services delivered over linear streams.
“The pay TV industry is demanding more features and functionality from their set-top boxes, and Kaon Media is positioning themselves at the forefront of this change,” said Aneesh Rajaram, CEO, Vewd. “We’re honored to have our software be part of their offering, which will now open the door for over 100 pay-TV operators enjoy quality and flexibility in offering the latest in OTT services and content to their subscribers.”
Vewd is the former Opera TV.
