Vizio looked to Velope to produce and develop its VIA Netflix sidebar application. This nifty Adobe Stagecraft application has served as a solid launch point for a rich Netflix experience on Vizio TVs.
Netflix commissioned Velope for both versions 1 and 2 of this app. These projects presented a unique set of challenges, including working within an emerging Broadcom/Vizio embedded environment, adapting to the Yahoo UI design framework, and overcoming some basic limitations of the Stagecraft (Flash Lite 3.1) runtime.
Velope was up for the task.
Kudos to the impressive Netflix UI engineering team. They are the clear global leaders and innovators in multi-device, over-the-top video on demand. What they’re doing in the streaming arena is ambitious and groundbreaking, and we do admire ambition. (no earthquakes please)
