Telefónica, a provider of communications services and solutions, has started a project to create an Open Middleware solution to integrate in some set-top boxes, based on the Frog Source solution from Wyplay, creator of software solutions for pay-TV operators.
Frog Source provides fully documented source code for all of Wyplay’s set-top box software components. This solid foundation provides operator’s developers with the freedom and flexibility to create their own products in a more cost effective way compared to traditional proprietary solutions. Frog Source brings together more than 200 components powering all STB features from basic zapper up to advanced multi-tuner gateways with transcoding.
“We are thrilled to work with Telefónica, one of the world’s leading operators. With their technical team, they are now free to be their own system integrator and be able to tailor all or part of their own solutions,” said Jacques Bourgninaud, Wyplay CEO. He added, “With Frog Source, Telefónica is back in the driver’s seat.”
