Lausanne, Switzerland – 6 September 2023 – iWedia, a provider of software components and solutions for TV devices for major service operators and consumer electronics manufacturers, and Realtek, one of the world’s leading network and multimedia IC providers, today announced a new collaboration to enable the creation of ATSC 3.0-enabled set-top boxes.
