The new device will be powered by VewdOS – an operating system designed for smart TVs, set-top boxes, and smart home and IoT devices – and will be targeted at pay TV operators.
“The combination of a modern customisable streaming experience with an innovative, easy-to-deploy form factor is an easy choice for operators seeking growth,” said Aneesh Rajaram, CEO, Vewd.
“Innopia’s new device, together with Vewd OS, delivers everything Pay TV operators need to launch new services they control, reduce churn and attract new subscribers.”
Innopia President, Heewon Park, said: “Vewd OS brings operators flexibility, control, and deep customisation options.
“With this HDMI streaming media player, operators can offer the latest OTT services without costly hardware or software updates. It’s ready to go immediately offering the shortest possible time to market for operators who need new streaming options to reduce churn and grow their customer base.”
The streaming media device will be available in the second half of 2019 and will support HD and Ultra HD content.
