Now LED panel manufacturer HKC is developing its Smart TV business and has chosen NetRange as a reliable partner for Smart TV OTT solutions.

“The conscientious work of our team for this project has greatly contributed to the timely delivery,” said Jan Wendt, the CEO of NetRange, “without it we could not have delivered the project with such efficiency”. He added, “This project with HKC marks an important step in broadening our network of OEMs”.
