The joint offering combines best-in-class hardware and software. This includes a high-performance, low power and cost-effective reference platform for Google and Netflix from Synaptics, along with world-class software components and unmatched integration services from iWedia. The platform enables rapid deployments even for highly complex, hybrid operator projects.

The Android 11 release includes recent features like Tuner HAL and MediaCAS V2. iWedia capitalizes on it to enable Widevine CAS support and hybrid DVB/IPTV/OTT use-cases thanks to its comprehensive products portfolio like ABR media player, IPTV and Broadcast stacks, on top of its Operator Tier Launcher and Targeted Ad solution.

Based on the acclaimed VideoSmart™ platform from Synaptics, the VS640 includes a quad-core multimedia processor with a dedicated dual-core audio DSP, an integrated CPU, GPU, and an NPU that is purpose-built with AI to enhance the user experience. The platform also offers the next generation AV1 video decode format — a requirement for future YouTube and Netflix content.

«This successful, early integration of Android 11 strengthens our long-standing relationship with iWedia,» said Siddarth Chandrasekar, Marketing Director at Synaptics. «As an AI-enabled platform, the VS640 brings opens new possibilities for the operators to innovate with new features and generate new monetization streams.»
