How to Use

Note on Universal Search Feed Images
VIZIO requires that all apps include an image in the 2:3 (poster) ratio that can be used for “universal search” purposes. If a compliant image is available it will be used, but if no such image has been provided within the metadata then the platform will generate a compliant image automatically. The image will use the default landscape thumbnail in the upper portion of the poster image, and the media's title rendered as text in the lower portion of the image. This ensures that customer apps are compliant with VIZIO specifications.
This tab includes the general information about your VIZIO app. We will use this info to fill in all the details on VIZIO Developer Portal, during app submission.

Therefore, please make sure that the logo is designed as SVG. Please do not convert PNG or JPEG files to SVG as they will not create a true SVG file.
