Marseille, FRANCE – May 16th — Wyplay, creator of software solutions for Pay- TV operators, announced today that Paris-based Technicolor has become a Frog by Wyplay licensee. Technicolor now integrates Wyplay’s open source middleware in customer premises equipment (CPE) offerings for pay TV operators in key growth markets across Latin America, India and South East Asia.
Frog by Wyplay is the first independent open source software solution for pay-TV operators and represents a rapidly growing segment of the digital TV technology ecosystem with more than 150 member companies that include: chipset vendors, device manufacturers, independent software vendors, software development/integration services providers and operators.
