Empower Your Products with Qt as They Have

Consumer Electronics benefits 1

Cut Down Time-to-market with Integrated End-to-end Software Tooling

Break down silos and optimize your consumer electronics development process with a streamlined design-develop-test workflow.

Encompassing all stages of the product lifecycle—from UI design to development and testing—Qt product offering lets your teams build your software upon a single codebase. With Qt, UI/UX designers, 2D/3D technical artists, software architects, developers, and testing engineers can collaborate on the same source of truth through a unified set of tools, enabling fast error detection and rapid iterations while leaving no margin for misunderstanding across teams.

Consumer Electronics benefits 3 (1)

Scale over Appliance Types to Deliver the Ultimate Experience to Your Growing Audience

Expand and complement your core offering with new devices and added functionality to deliver a uniform user experience and a consistent look-and-feel across your entire consumer electronics product portfolio.

Qt applications are by design platform agnostics and can be ported to different hardware, operating system, and display form factors with minimal effort. Coding once and deploying everywhere implies reduced costs and time-to-market, independence from hardware suppliers, and scalability across hardware solutions—from high-end microprocessors to low-end microcontrollers—for reduced BOM. With Qt, you can let your teams focus on what really matters—the ultimate user experience—and rely on the UI framework to take care of the platform integration.

Interoperability and Cross-Platform Scalability Qt

Simplify Consumer Electronics Software Maintenance with a Unique Codebase

Standardize the application’s functionality across devices, models, and even brands to enhance the user experience, performance, and ease of maintenance.

Building and maintaining a full-fledged consumer electronics product portfolio can be straining and time-consuming. By decoupling the application logic from the UI’s look-and-feel, the Qt framework empowers the broadest reusability of the core components and their straightforward customization across different product lines. Your developers can optimize the core functionalities once and for all, while UX designers tailor the experience to the different electronics models, markets, and demographic groups for the highest return on investment.

Ensure Seamless Connectivity across Appliances for a Comprehensive IoT System

Exploit ready-made solutions for cloud connectivity and smooth machine-to-machine communication to deliver a world of smart devices at your fingertips.

The Qt framework provides connectivity libraries for Bluetooth, Bluetooth low-energy, MQTT, NFC, Wi-Fi, and more, transforming consumer electronics appliances into smart IoT devices that can be operated remotely and seamlessly interact with each other. Connectivity enables new scenarios of operability that improve the quality of our daily lives such as smart home automation.

Customer Stories Written with Qt


Built with Qt

For a multi-brand, multi-category group to stand out in the global, hyper-competitive market, the elegance of products goes hand in hand with their seamless functionality and smooth operability.

"The Qt framework naturally enables the creation of atomic UI components that can be reused across projects. Atoms can be composed into larger molecules (or templates) that can be reused with great benefit. This allows us to port a consistent, optimal UX across different devices."

Daniel Dersmann

Head of Global GUI Framework Development

Gruppo Cimbali

Built with Qt

Gruppo Cimbali has a long history of working with Qt, dating back to 2010. In 2022, they decided to enter the commercial program to take advantage of the full professional offer of Qt products and libraries.  Learn what competitive advantages Qt delivered to them.

“We are quite excited about the new opportunities offered by accessing the full Qt commercial offering. We already love QML for delivering beautiful UI applications so efficiently. But we see a huge potential in the availability of integrated QA and testing tools.”

Built with Qt

X2D 100C camera uses Qt on both its touch displays, including Qt for MCUs on its new 1.08-inch colored top display, reporting the camera status and shooting parameters.

"Qt was a game-changer for us in creating the microdisplay for our new camera. Despite the initial challenges we faced with memory, fonts, and layout, the direct support from Qt Group was exceptional. We were able to effectively leverage the wealth of online cases in the Qt community and achieve outstanding results."
