In a bid to unify the fragmented TV app market around a common, independent and open platform, ten of the world’s top TV app agencies have announced support for the Vewd OTT ecosystem.

vewd 11oct2017The ten agencies — Accedo, Cisco, Easel TV, Floatleft Interactive, Fractal Media, Massive, Tradecast, TV App Agency, Wizitivi and 24i — 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, said the former Opera TV, reducing the fragmentation and complexity that have plagued the TV app market for years.

The company claims that its Vewd Core is the most deployed HTML5 platform for smart TVs and set-top boxes with nearly 50 million units shipped each year, while there are more than 1,500 Vewd-enabled apps and two million indexed videos.

“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 Vewd SVP of partnerships Daniel Nordberg. “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.”
