VisualOn's OnStream MediaPlayer+ is now integrated into Korea's Naver Player for Line TV service for iOS and Android devices.

The aim is to enable scalable cross-platform media playback for global streaming media brands for a high-quality video playback experience,

Naver Player enables Naver's various live broadcasts and VOD videos to be viewed on iOS and Android devices with higher stability, quality, and scalability than the built-in device video player. Additionally, the platform features a one-touch notification function and an audio-only mode.

Ranked one of the top 100 companies that matter most in online video by Streaming Media Magazine, VisualOn was chosen by Naver for the partnership for its market-proven multimedia software. Naver's customers can now access high-quality, live TV streams and recorded shows on all the connected iOS and Android devices anywhere and at any time.

"The Korean market is a crucial region for Naver and VisualOn due to its high volume of mobile consumers that expect a high-quality viewing experience no matter where they are," said Andy Lin, CEO, VisualOn.
