  • Frog by Wyplay partnership leverages Technicolor’s global resources and expertise in delivering seamless access to entertainment in the home.

Technicolor has officially joined Frog by Wyplay — an open community developing advanced digital video solutions, including those embedded in customer premises equipment (CPE) for connected homes in the rapidly evolving APAC region.

Frog by Wyplay is the first independent open source software solution for pay-TV operators. With more than 150 member companies, it represents a fast-growing segment of the digital TV technology ecosystem. Members of the partner community have complete access to the source code and components needed to build the most innovative service provider solutions.

As a Frog community member, Technicolor will be building on a successful track record of integrating Wyplay’s open source middleware in Technicolor CPE offerings for pay-TV operators such as Canal+ in France, NC+ in Poland, and R in Spain, and in key growth markets across Latin America, India, and South East Asia.

“We are thrilled to deepen our partnership with Technicolor,” said Jacques Bourgninaud, Wyplay CEO. “We believe that by combining our turnkey software with Technicolor’s highly competitive and high quality devices, a wider range of operators worldwide will be able to quickly deploy attractive services.”

Added SVP Geneviève Pinvidic from Technicolor Connected Home, "Technicolor’s decision to become an active Frog by Wyplay licensee is the latest example of our commitment to open innovation and industry-wide collaboration as we work together to push the boundaries of what entertainment should be."
