Wyplay, creator of software solutions for pay-TV operators, has announced the opening of Frog by Wyplay, an initiative that aims to free all players in the TV ecosystem from being locked-in to proprietary solutions.
“With the release of the first version of the Frog source code to our partners and licensees today through the Frog web portal, we are delivering on our promise to free the digital TV technology industry.” said Wyplay CEO Jacques Bourgninaud. “We look forward to our partner’s product and service deployments, based on our technology, with operators who will reap the benefits of an open source and collaborative approach.”
Frog by Wyplay is the first independent open source software solution for pay-TV operators. This solution includes access to the complete source code and all the components to build operator’s products. The initiative brings together a growing ecosystem of almost 40 companies across the entire digital TV technology value chain including chipset vendors, device manufacturers, independent software vendors, software service providers and operators.
