TimelessUI Universe, Wiztivi’s flagship user interface product, is now compatible with RD; the company has also joined the RDK community as Preferred Member.


Wiztivi: TimelessUI Universe now supports RDK-powered set-top boxes

Reference Design Kit (RDK) is an open source software platform for the connected home that standardises core functions used in broadband devices and set-top boxes. It enables operators to manage their devices, control their business models and customise their apps, UIs and data analytics to improve the customer experience and drive business results.

By further extending the compatibility of TimelessUI Universe to support RDK-powered set-top boxes – in addition to Linux and Android TV – Wiztivi says it is able to ensure the UX consistency that telecom operators, broadcasters and OTT service providers need for their ecosystem.

Operators now benefit from a cross-device and modular UI product combining all the required features for a multiscreen TV portal, compatible with any environment. They can now enrich their content offering and maintain their brand identity on all targeted platforms.

As part of its development strategy, Wiztivi is also joining the RDK Preferred Member Program. By joining the community, the company will be fully involved in working groups, participate in RDK Summits and work collaboratively on RDK reference implementations on member-selected hardware platforms.

“All the company’s teams are very happy to join the prestigious RDK community and contribute to its development. For Wiztivi, this relationship is an important milestone in its strategy to offer its customers a unique user experience in a wide range of technical environments, with a very short time-to-market,” Ari Bensimon, CEO at Wiztivi, said.
