Canal+ Group, a market leading pay-TV provider, is in advanced deployment testing using a new software solution co-developed with Wyplay based on the Frog By Wyplay service. Frog, the first independent open source solution targeted for television operators, allowed Canal+ to:
Develop a high performance graphical user-interface in HTML5,
Create partnerships with third-party software solution suppliers,
Build applications and interactivity on set-top box decoders and mobiles devices.
“We are delighted with the co-development results with Canal+’s teams” said Wyplay CEO Jacques Bourgninaud. “Frog By Wyplay addresses operator’s needs to control their next generation technologies and innovation capabilities while remaining vendor independent.”
“We have co-developed with Wyplay a software solution in less than 12 months that modernizes and increases the performance of our multi-million connected set-top box installed base as well as providing new services and a richer user experience for our clients” added Frédéric Vincent, Technical & System Information Director at Canal+. “We are also thrilled to be the first pay-TV operator to benefit from this innovative solution and the rich functionality provided by Frog by Wyplay“.
Wyplay, a Canal+ Group partner since late 2012, has been updating Canal+’s set-top boxes and providing new product and service technologies. The latest co-development project deployment is part of the original contract agreement.
Frog By Wyplay will be officially launched at the CES Las Vegas tradeshow in January 2014. The source code and documentation will available through this website.
