James MacTavish News, Press Releases

Lausanne, Switzerland — Sept. 11, 2014 — iWedia today announced that it is partnering with AppCarousel and plans to integrate its Teatro-3.5 software solution for Android TV STB with the app store platforms and solutions provided by AppCarousel, the leader in app ecosystem management.

AppCarousel’s custom app store platform and white labeled app store solution allow device manufacturers, service providers and brands to capitalize on the growing app economy, while removing the complexities of app market creation, management, and app distribution.

iWedia’s Teatro-3.5 software solution for Android TV STB uses iWedia’s ANDROID4TV framework and APIs to seamlessly extend Android and integrate all the multicast, unicast and broadcast components necessary to give support to managed IPTV, OTT TV and broadcast TV services with advanced UI developed in Java or HTML5/JavaScript.

“With this integration, we take into account the ever growing interest of the TV ecosystem in apps and services stores,” says Hervé Creff, VP Marketing at iWedia. “With that respect, giving access to AppCarousel’s app stores from within Teatro-3.5 is an enabler for TV service providers”.

“Allowing access to our app stores by Android TV STBs operated by Teatro-3.5 will definitely help TV service providers to smoothly implement their custom app strategy and ecosystem”, says Terry Hughes, AppCarousel’s Managing Director.
