Sherwood Enhancing Receivers with Verismo Internet TV Platform


With Verismo’s Internet TV technology, Sherwood audio receivers double as an Internet TV set top box, enabling customers to watch Internet videos right on their television

Verismo Networks and Sherwood announced the integration of Verismo’s award-winning Internet TV solution into Sherwood’s popular line of receivers. By leveraging Verismo technology, Sherwood significantly expands the versatility of its receivers — giving consumers the ability to watch millions of Internet videos directly on their TV.

This OEM agreement enables Sherwood to tap into the explosive popularity of online video as a powerful way to differentiate their products. End users not only add an award-winning audio receiver to their home theater, but when connected to the home’s broadband network, the receiver brings the world of Internet video as well as personal media such as photos, videos and music from their home network directly to HD and SD televisions.

“Consumers are looking for a new breed of appliances for home entertainment that can bring the rich media assets available on the Internet directly to the TV,” said Jeff Hipps, EVP at Sherwood America. “We evaluated the available solutions and were impressed with Verismo’s open Internet TV platform — both in terms of the breadth of content that is supported, and as ease of integration into other consumer devices.”

Through Verismo’s strong content partner network, Sherwood’s end users are able to watch the widest selection of online content right on their TV without an additional set top box or computer. Verismo’s intuitive interface lets users browse and search for videos from popular web sites, live TV channels from around the world, Live Internet radio, and movies with a click of the remote.

“Sherwood is taking the lead in redefining the market for next-generation audio-video receivers,” said Dhaval Ajmera, EVP of Verismo Networks. “This partnership expands the concept of what an audio receiver can do, by combining Sherwood’s award-winning audio hardware with Verismo’s leading Internet TV platform to give consumers an unparallel entertainment experience.”
