PacketVideo has announced a partnership with Aigo, the Chinese consumer electronic maker. The two companies will partner to provide dongle-based solutions to operators and content providers outside of China.
The companies will collaborate to provide Android and Linux powered dongles for operators and content owners. PacketVideo will provide its Twonky software and suite of multi-screen products and work with operators to integrate with their content services. Twonky enables end-users to find the content they want to watch using their phone, tablet, or PC and easily play it back on any TV with the Dongle installed. Aigo will act as a manufacturing partner leveraging its years of experience delivering consumer products in the Chinese market.
“We believe that operators and content providers are looking for new models to deliver content and with the growth of smartphones and tablets, HDMI dongles are a user-friendly and cost effective way to deliver a new content experience to end-users.” said Richard Huang, General Manager of Aigo Digital company Ltd.
