You.i Engine One
An App Platform Built for Video
Build high-performance video apps for mobile, tablet, game consoles, streaming devices, and Smart TVs from a single codebase
You.i Engine One is an app platform that delivers cross-platform user interfaces from a single codebase. You.i Engine One was built with TV and media-specific features in mind, including a reference application, a common video player interface, video metadata integrations, and more.
Leverage a hardware-accelerated rendering engine that delivers fluid user experiences across every screen.
Flexible Developer Tooling
Tooling to consistently build, prototype, test, and deploy on every platform.
Purpose Built for Video
Consistent access to playback, reference screens, monetization models, and custom integration adapters.
Powerful Design Workflow
Designers build and export the UI directly to the codebase for a pixel-perfect app.
C++ Based Framework
You.i Engine One is a complete application framework that offers maximum code reuse through the use of platform independent controls and libraries.
Achieve true native performance through an abstracted rendering pipeline that supports OpenGL, OpenGL ES, DirectX, and Custom Graphics APIs to consistently deliver rich experiences across every screen.
Flexible Native Integrations
Ability to leverage native libraries and user interface controls within your cross-platform application, including prebuilt access to common platform capabilities.
React Native & JS Support
You.i TV now offers new options and flexibility in how you build your You.i Engine One-based app through the support of React Native as an official development platform–and by offering JS bindings on-top of the C++ foundation.
For React Native developers, You.i Engine One will feel just like a new target platform for maintaining development workflows. It will be extended with broad portability, unlock a new level of cross-platform code re-use around custom functionality, and add a new level of design fidelity with smooth JSX integrations into our designer workflow.
All of these approaches can be used interchangeably within the same application, enabling a new level of flexibility in how you develop and augment applications.
Build the UI in After Effects
We combine the power of Adobe with the You.i Engine AE exporter which allows designers compose layout, skin the screens, add interactivity, and animate with ease and control.
Rich Motion Design
Elevate your app to a world-class experience with branded animations, beautifully fluid loaders, page transitions, button sequences, swim lanes, and promotions.
Create responsive screens by setting layout anchors and type breakpoints so your UI adapts perfectly to mobile, tablet, and TV.
Lossless Design to Development
All screens and UI elements are exported directly into the application codebase creating a user experience without any loss or development effort in the handoff from designer to developer.
Prototype and Preview
No mountain of devices needed. Designers are enabled to simulate real-world conditions and devices. Preview animations, layouts, and content without touching a line of code.
Configure your app to retrieve and update UX elements, including layout, styling, and motion, dynamically from the cloud.
