Frog by Wyplay aims to be Android of STBs

Monday 13 January 2014 | 14:33 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
The French middleware developer Wyplay launched in September 2013 Frog By Wyplay, at the IBC show in Amsterdam. At CES in Las Vegas last week, it presented a number of further steps. The company has embraced the open-source concept and announced new partners, in addition to Canal Plus. Its goal is to become nothing less than the the 'Android of the set-top box', as well as offer an alternative to the RDK (Reference Design Kit) from Comcast and other platforms such as Google's Android for TV.
