QJY, one of the Chinese leading browser providers for Smart TV, has fully accomplished the integration with the Smart TV app store of NetRange, the leading global provider of white-label Smart TV ecosystems. At the current state, the QJY browser can seamlessly support applications of the NetRange app store, including DRM-protected premium VoD apps in many regions globally. Now, for TV manufacturers who choose QJY and NetRange for their products, their end users could access more content. This content portfolio includes video on demand, sports, music, games, daily news and more than 400 live TV channels.
With the increasing penetration for Smart TV in the overseas market, most end users choose to enjoy online content via Smart TV devices. Regarding functionalities, Smart TV is closing its gaps with PCs and smart phones. In this process, the Smart TV browser plays a fundamental role: it enables the interaction between the app store and the local software; it offers an open browser for end users to enjoy surfing online freely, and it also assists in supporting commands from the local software.
QJY has accomplished full integration with multiple VoD applications from NetRange. It includes VoD interface, VoD playback, and DRM integration, which have facilitated a seamless communication between contents and platforms. As the integration has been completed already, when TV brands and OEMs choose the QJY browser, their project duration can be reduced to its minimum, as it is cost-efficient and it shortens the technical effort drastically.
The name QJY is an abbreviation of Qian Jia Yue, meaning enjoyment for everyone. The concept is to provide enjoyment to anyone who is in front of the TV, which is a magic fit to the NetRange brand value.
Mr. Liu, the CEO of QJY stated, “it is a win-win cooperation. NetRange’s exceptional performance with its app store brings a good reputation to our brand. With the same brand mantra, our companies will create more value for our clients.”
Jan Wendt, the CEO of NetRange, added, “Our partnership with QJY secures an outstanding performance of the NetRange app store. As a global Smart TV solution provider, we endeavor to give a full support on integration with browsers of all kind. So we are very glad to become the first provider to have live products with all major Smart TV browsers, among which QJY is an indispensable one. We are willing to share the experience of integrating VoD services and our app store with our partners so that we can create a more diversified ecosystem that can be compatible with more platforms.”
