WeTek partners with NexPlayer

March 15, 2019

WeTek and NexPlayer have partnered to create a full end-to-end OTT platform supporting Widevine DRM with both HLS & DASH. The solution can be deployed on Android, iOS, Android TVs, Android STBs, Samsung Tizen, LG webOS, and HTML5.

“We are happy to provide WeTek with a secure Widevine player for a wide range of platforms,” says Carlos Lucas, General Manager of NexPlayer. “With the threat of digital theft growing at an ever-increasing rate, it is essential that OTT solutions protect their content with DRM, and Widevine is the clear choice. Beyond that, making sure their content can reach any user regardless of device or OS version is crucial to providing the optimal viewing experience. NexPlayer is trusted by over 300 premium video service providers worldwide to do just that, and we will continue working with WeTek to jointly develop new technologies that address the needs of the market.”

“We are proud to have NexPlayer by our side boosting our top of the line security in video distribution “. Hugo Condesa, WeTek CEO adds “Multi-platform convergence is seen as a big challenge, one we are more than comfortable of overcoming with a strong, reliable and, most of all, experienced partnership. Offering users the possibility to flow between different devices and OS versions, while enjoying the same premium experience, is one of our priorities and NexPlayer addresses the same concerns.”
