Driving Innovations to Fill the Industry Gap
The over-the-top (OTT) TV market continues to develop and expand across the globe, by and large due to the pandemic and the increased amount of time that people are spending at home watching TV. Although, smart TV’s tend to be pricey owing to the complex hardware and software installed on them, many households in Southeast Asia are looking for budget-friendly alternatives that can satisfy their demand for access to quality entertainment, including TV shows, movies, games and more.
In addition, those that are using smart TV’s generally have three major pain points: a lack of TV memory space due to the size of the OS itself, frequent system freezes, and complicated user interfaces.
Armed with these market findings, coocaa has launched Coolita, a new sub-brand that focuses on TV OS and services development, its proprietary solution to these evolving consumer needs.
Coolita OS 1.0: Delivering a “Cool & Clear” Experience for Consumers
Coolita OS is a lite Web OS built on Linux kernel that offers a lighter, smoother, and more convenient smart TV experience. With a "Cool & Clear" design concept in mind, Coolita OS 1.0 features a simplistic and easy-to-navigate user interface.
Coolita OS 1.0 comes with an array of entertainment options and applications to enjoy. The latest YouTube 2021 app offers unlimited access to high-quality videos, while CC Plus, a comprehensive integrated streaming platform supported by Coolita OS, offers a range of global and local content with real-time updates, and customized content recommendations. With the exclusive CC Cast, a proprietary technology developed by coocaa, users can project content from an Android device onto the TV screen without any Internet or Wi-Fi connection by connecting to the local area network (LAN) from the TV. Other entertainment options include pre-installed lite cloud games, a built-in Internet browser, an app store and more.
To accommodate the different needs of discerning consumers, Coolita OS 1.0 also features various user-friendly functions, including a Data Saver that provides real-time data reminders to help people easily manage their data usage, and an Eye Protection Mode to provide a comfortable and enjoyable low-blue-light viewing experience.
