Xperi and Vewd are exhibiting jointly at IBC for the first time since the two companies announced their merger in July 2022.
Xperi acquired the global provider of OTT and hybrid TV solutions for $109 million. Gabriel Cosgrave, General Manager, EMEA, Australia and New Zealand at Xperi, told IBC Daily that the move establishes the group as a major independent streaming media platform through its TiVo brand and the largest independent provider of smart TV middleware globally.
“We’re now in full integration mode,” Cosgrave said, noting that this could take up to around a year.
In the meantime, the combined group has already been launching new products, such as the Vewd OpX for Android TV Operator Tier. The service has already been deployed by US operator Evoca for the delivery of its next-gen TV service.
Xperi also recently announced the launch of its independent media platform, TiVo OS. Consumer electronics provider Vestel will ship the first smart TVs ‘powered by TiVo’ in Europe beginning in 2023.
