Vewd bids to unify TV app ecosystem
October 12, 2017
Vewd (formerly Opera TV), a global market player in enabling OTT, has announced that ten of the world’s top TV app agencies will support the Vewd ecosystem in a bid to unify the fragmented TV app market around an independent and open platform. The ten app agencies are: Accedo, Cisco, Easel TV, Floatleft Interactive, Fractal Media, Massive, Tradecast, TV App Agency, Wizitivi, and 24i.
These ten agencies have completed the Vewd Certify process, thereby ensuring the TV applications they develop for their customers work seamlessly with certified devices in the Vewd ecosystem. This ensures their applications will work out of the box with all Vewd-enabled devices and thus reduce the fragmentation and complexity have plagued the TV app market for years.
“The TV App agencies are the backbone of our industry. Working with these leading agencies to unify their development efforts around the Vewd Core ecosystem allows for significantly lower OPEX and quicker time-to-market for all ecosystem partners” says Daniel Nordberg, SVP of Partnerships, Vewd. “At Vewd, we work hard to simply complexity and reduce fragmentation, ensuring that our partners can focus on what they do best – making compelling experiences on connected TV devices.”
