Vewd for Automotive

Putting the entertainment in infotainment

Cars are inherently complex with many connected components needed to deliver all the features that drivers and passengers demand. It’s not just radio, satellite navigation, and management of vehicle systems. Passengers now want in-car access to all of their favorite content, not just from smartphones and physical storage devices but also from their apps, direct from streaming services and even over-the-air from TV broadcasters.

To make all this entertainment easily available to passengers, automotive head unit and rear seat systems need proven technology for content acquisition, access and playback, all combined in an intuitive user experience that matches consumers’ expectations with minimized development effort.

At the same time, upgradeability needs to be built-in to keep the experience up-to-date and fresh over the lifetime of the vehicle.

For nearly two decades, Vewd has been delivering such entertainment solutions, developing technologies that have been deployed in millions of vehicles around the world, enabling content playback and state-of-the art user experiences for consumers on the move.
