Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer Hisense has inked an agreement with Aria Systems for third-party billing for its VIDAA International streaming video platform. VIDAA is an open format Smart TV operating system, currently used on Hisense TVs.
Hisense is one of the manufacturers of Roku-branded televisions.
San Francisco-based Aria Systems platform aims to improve the management of VIDAA subscription accounts internationally and help generate recurring revenue across multiple geographies, currencies and languages, all while maintaining compliance with local privacy and data protection laws.
Aria will also enable the company to begin monetizing the millions of latent customer accounts already registered in its database by offering new premium content via subscription and on demand.
“With the global surge in consumer demand for streaming services and smart devices, the presence of an agile billing and subscriber management platform becomes a key competitive differentiator for service providers,” Tom Dibble, CEO, Aria Systems, said in a statement.
