MediaTek has reiterated its focus on R&D to enable ‘Make in India’ and ‘AtmaNirbhar Bharat’, during its first Virtual Chapter of the MediaTek Technology Diaries Knowledge Forum.
The highlight of this forum was MediaTek’s collaboration with VVDN Technologies to offer a new range of MediaTek AIoT solutions for home and office use.
As a part of the partnership, smart devices powered by MediaTek will be rolled out in India in the fourth quarter of 2020.
MediaTek and VVDN will be working closely to design, develop, and manufacture new-age AIoT solutions, including camera solutions, home automation solutions, and Voice Assistant Devices / smart speakers.
According to Anku Jain, Managing Director, MediaTek India, “MediaTek leads the market in chipset technology for Smart Phones, Smart TVs, Voice Assistant Devices (VADs), Android tablets, feature phones and more. A recent report by techARC also states that amongst chipset manufacturers, MediaTek leads in terms of adoption of its chipset solution by various OEMs across several devices including TVs, Smart Speakers, STBs, TWS among others. India remains a key growth market for us, both in terms of business value proposition and talent pool. We are keen to enable the ’Make in India’ narrative by collaborating with indigenous device makers like VVDN Technologies to create smart solutions in India, targeted at both Indian and global consumers.”
According to Vivek Bansal, President Engineering and Co-Founder, VVDN Technologies, “We are excited to work with MediaTek as the association will contribute greatly towards our ‘Make in India’ initiatives. VVDN’s collaboration with MediaTek will enable us to work together on innovative and cost-effective smart devices at our Global Innovation Park (GIP) manufacturing hub in Manesar which houses an elaborate R&D, design, engineering, and electronic manufacturing facility. We look forward to a long and successful alliance with MediaTek.”
