Industry Game-Changer Vewd OS Now Pre-Integrated on Amlogic Silicon

AMSTERDAM — Amlogic, a global fabless system-on-a-chip (SoC) leader, partnered with Vewd, the leading provider of OTT and Hybrid TV solutions, to pre-integrate Vewd OS on chipsets designed for streaming media players, set-top boxes, and connected home devices. The partnership significantly reduces CapEx and time-to-market for manufacturers selecting the popular Linux-based Amlogic S905X silicon, while giving access to the groundbreaking Vewd OS feature set.

When it comes to connected home devices, small optimizations to the hardware bill of materials (BoM) can deliver significant savings. Due to the Vewd OS architecture, several dollars per device can be saved when compared to similar smart TV solutions. Pre-integration on Amlogic hardware further reduces development costs and substantially improves time to market by providing off the shelf product solutions.

“Combining our chipsets with Vewd’s software creates a market-ready platform with best-in-class features and reliability,” said James Xie, Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy, Amlogic. “Our joint solution empowers manufacturers to offer Pay TV operators a custom UI experience tailored to the next OTT generation.”

By introducing the Vewd OS into the Pay TV set-top box space, Amlogic’s customers can offer a feature-rich solution that ensures operator success. Vewd OS offers greater control than other smart TV operating systems, so operators can position their own branded OTT service front and center with their subscribers. At the same time, Vewd’s worldwide content owner relationships ensure operators can offer their subscribers highly desirable global, and regional, premium OTT content. Furthermore, device management is simplified through an intuitive cloud-based back office, which reduces operational cost and offers a broad range of customization, monetization, and analytics tools.

“We are pleased to extend the reach of Vewd OS into the Pay TV market by pre-integrating on Amlogic’s platform,” said Aneesh Rajaram, CEO of Vewd. “Amlogic is the global market leader in the OTT device segment, so in this way, we can serve a broad range of OEMs and their operators. In an age of cord cutters and cord nevers, Vewd and Amlogic have created a device platform that gives operators the edge in growing subscribers and reducing churn.”
