Canal+ Group is in advanced deployment testing using a new software solution co-developed with Wyplay and based on the Frog By Wyplay service.

Co-developed in less than 12 months, the software solution modernises and increases the performance of Canal+'s multi-million connected set-top box park while also providing new services and a richer user experience for customers.

Independent open source solution Frog targets television operators and allows Canal+ to develop a high performance graphical user interface in HTML5, create partnerships with third-party software solution suppliers and build apps and interactivity on set-top box decoders and mobiles devices.

"Frog By Wyplay addresses operator's needs to control their next-generation technologies and innovation capabilities while remaining vendor independent," said Wyplay CEO Jacques Bourgninaud.

Wyplay has been a partner of Canal+ Group since late 2012, updating Canal+'s set-top box park and providing new product and service technologies. This latest co-development project is part of the original contract agreement.

Frog By Wyplay will be officially launched at the CES Las Vegas tradeshow in January 2014.
