LAUSANNE, Switzerland — iWedia today announced that it has concluded an agreement with Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) to provide iWedia integration services to Google partners wishing to deploy the Google TV platform in their products. iWedia engineers have been certified by Google and are fully trained to be capable of integrating Google TV into a wide range of consumer electronic devices (CE devices).
At the same time, teams of Google and iWedia work on expansion of the Google TV framework for the European market. The solution is based on the market proven Android4TV technology that natively integrates DTV services for European CE devices, enabling full end-user experience of traditional DVB services such as Teletext, EPG, MHEG, HbbTV, and CI Plus, inside devices running on the Google TV platform.
“We are extremely excited to sign such an important agreement with Google”, said Nikola Teslić, CTO of iWedia. “We have invested heavily in building Android support into all our product lines and the integration with the newest Google TV platform is an exciting addition. We are delighted to be able to propose our integration services to Google customers and partners and share the Google vision of integrating Google TV into myriads of CE devices”.
Google TV integration services can be supplied by iWedia either standalone or in combination with the deployment of iWedia products. IWedia supplies Comedia-4 fully integrated into the Google TV framework which can be used for STB and iDTVs (including analog TV). In addition iWedia supplies a large portfolio of software components such as HbbTV, DLNA, DTCP-IP, MHEG, CI Plus, and other important connected TV software that can be provided to enable CE device rollout.
