Wyplay and STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM) said they have announced the availability of a satellite broadcast-enabled reference implementation of the open-source Frog by Wyplay set-top-box middleware for ST´s range of system-on-chip processors based on ARM architectures (Cannes, Liege2, Monaco, and Orly).
Frog is an initiative built around Wyplay´s software solutions, made available under a shared-source model for a growing community of companies across the entire digital-TV ecosystem which includes chipset vendors, device manufacturers, independent software vendors, software-service providers, and operators.
Within the Frog initiative, Wyplay offers to development teams of member companies a hardware platform based on ST hardware on which Wyplay has ported its solution. This serves as a “turnkey” example of an implementation and as the basis for further customization of projects for Pay TV operators.
