Vewd Core

The Industry's Most Deployed HTML5 SDK

Vewd Core

Vewd Core is an HTML5 platform for the rendering and playback of streamed, broadcast and web-based content. Based on Chromium, for full compatibility with evolving web standards, it provides an ideal foundation for enabling OTT and advanced user experiences on all profiles of connected devices. Vewd Core is robust and proven technology, leading the industry by shipping worldwide on almost 40 million devices each year. Vewd Core can be found in TVs, set-top boxes, Blu-ray players, game consoles, streaming media players and even automotive head units.

Vewd Core is packaged as a Software Development Kit (SDK) containing a library, with rich APIs, that enables device manufacturers, operators, middleware companies, SoC vendors and system integrators to fulfill all their modern HTML5 needs. The SDK is ported and optimized for all major silicon vendor platforms, significantly reducing time-to-market. It is at the forefront in supporting all the latest industry standards and is used by customers to render all leading OTT services globally.

When coupled with Vewd Core Modules, the SDK extends to cover all major video streaming standards, Hybrid Broadcast Broadband Television (HbbTV), open internet browsing and native applications from leading OTT providers.

Vewd Core is also the foundation for Vewd OS – the revolutionary new entertainment operating system for smart TV, Vewd Broadcast Plus― a set of certification-ready UX components for broadcast receivers, and Vewd App Store ― the industry’s most deployed independent TV App Store.
