Vewd, formally known as Opera TV, has announced that its OTT platform has been selected by Korean set-top-box manufacturer Kaon Media for its next generation of STBs.

Vewd stated in their announcement that Kaon Media is “one of the world’s largest manufacturers of set-top-boxes, shipping their products to more than 150 operators in 90 countries”.

Vewd is used by several global market leaders including Samsung, Sony, Verizon and TiVo, with 50 million new devices connecting to its service every year.

Kaon Media has selected Vewd’s Core HTML5 SDK and Media Player Module for its new set-top-boxes, primarily for its “ability to cut time-to-market significantly, from months to weeks, and out-of-the-box support for the leading OTT services pay-TV operators want to offer”.
