Frog by Wyplay software powers Sky Italia HD TV Decoders for Telecom Italia ultra-broadband subscribers.

The full Sky TV’ service offering will be deployed by Telecom Italia for their ‘ultra-broadband’ customers. With the Frog By Wyplay software solution, Sky Italia leverages the full range of IPTV innovations including Apple’s HLS Adaptive Streaming to deliver its hundreds of live TV channels via the internet.

Wyplay has provided the Frog Client software solution for the Sky HD decoders. In addition, Wyplay supplied its Frog back-end software solution -a new generation of hybrid service platform for IPTV and broadcast operators. Amongst other features, the Frog back-end manages the EPG, the hybrid IPTV/terrestrial channel line-up and caters for STB device management.

“I am really proud of our deployment with Sky Italia. Thanks to our strategic collaboration, we have been able to deliver and deploy this project in less than 10 months” said Jacques Bourgninaud, Wyplay CEO. He added, “The project was also the opportunity to integrate with Sky’s conditional access system powered by Cisco Systems. As a result, Frog By Wyplay has
now been integrated in field deployments with all the major CAS solutions on the market”.

In a related development, Wyplay has announced that Humax has become a licensee of the Frog open-source STB client middleware solution.
