Android TV for Operators
WeTek has gathered a vast experience designing both AOSP and Android TV frontends. It allows us to provide fast times to market and deliver a final product in agreement with the very strict Google guidelines and its best practices.
Original Android TV
The original Android TV launcher allows the fastest time to market with limited yet effective customization options.
Template based UI
Choose from our templates created around Google’s guidelines. Change the color scheme and pinpointed sections, display your logo, amongst other options.
Create your own launcher while still complying with mandatory Google guidelines. Let us know your vision and we’ll make an Android TV version of it.
Integration and development
Multiple development solutions for all Android TV related needs. From frontend customization to DVB integration and everything in between.
WeTek will take care of integration with the best recommendation engine APIs to match the operators content and make sure it delivers the operator’s content first. This is crucial for making the operator’s content visible, highlighted, and easily discovered when conducting a search.
TIF compatible frontend
The Android TV Input Framework (TIF) simplifies the delivery of live content to Android TV. It also provides a standard API for WeTek to create input modules to control it, as well as enabling live TV search and recommendations via metadata published by TV input.
Our expertise in the hybrid STB market makes us an authority when it comes to creating and adapting devices to deliver the best of linear TV via DVB, along with the possibilities of OTT content. We integrate DVB-APIs and DVB-C/T/S2/S2X/ISDB-T/ATSC content delivery on Android TV frontends.
Operators understand that their service is only as good as the VOD and linear TV content they make available to their users. We work on expertly integrating VOD and linear TV, favoring the operator’s content over others.
Android TV Front-End Development
Android TV includes three additional elements that make TV deployments faster: Google defined profile, licenses and certification.
AOSP Front-End Development
Android Open Source Program (AOSP) is the operating system on which Android TV (and other Android flavors) is built.
One-stop shop for certifying your product
We’ll take care of running your projects through the essential certification tests, namely: CTS, GTS and CTS Verifier. These tests are mandatory for offering the most popular OTT services out-of-the-box.
